Booting Problems with fsck
I am a new user and have been playing with Linux for several weeks. This has involved numerous re-installations and I'm slowly learning. The last time I re-installed Linux, I started getting an fsck on every boot up. This is the first installation on which this has happened. I cannot get rid of this and the check takes 3-5 minutes. Since I am rebooting many times a day during tests and switches to Windows XP this check is really irritating. I want to disable this check on every boot and re-installing my Linux did not work. Here are some of the specifics:
Dual boot Ubuntu/Windows XP with Grub.
Windows XP boots normally.
fsck runs on every Ubuntu boot, appearing after the Ubuntu splash screen and going to a text-only screen.
During the test, I get a message at one point that says "there are differences between boot sector and its backup". That doesn't stop the check or Ubuntu eventually loading.
As I mentioned, I tried reinstalling Ubuntu but still get the fsck.
Thanks for any help fixing this irritant. :confused:
