    I Googled around, and found a Microsoft forum post detailing how to do this. However, whenever I enter the command, I get an access is denied error.

    bcdedit /set {current} bootstatuspolicy ignoreallfailures

    That's the command, which I get the following error:

    The boot configuration data store could not be opened. Access is denied.

    Sounds like you don't have administrative rights. Start CMD with them by right clicking and selecting "Run as administrator" before issuing the commands.

    To disable automatic disk check at boot Windows, go to the following registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ Session Manager

    In the right pane, click 2 times on BootExecute. The default value for this parameter is set to autocheck autochk *


    To disable the disk check to clear the value BootExecute.

    Good luck!:)

    That was it, cheers.

    MacKeeperFanMod - I was going to try that if the 'Run As Admin' tip failed, thanks anyway.
