Whenever I boot Ubuntu 20.04 on my computer, I get a message saying "Press Ctrl+C to cancel all filesystem checks in progress." is there any way to stop auto disk checking?

This happens with and without the Surface Linux kernel. If you want more info (such as my GRUB config) I'll answer it in the comments.

This did not happen when I used 18.04.

  • You should see that message only when booting live/install media, have you installed it? – guiverc Apr 21 at 7:36
  • If you're helping to test the development release (focal fossa isn't 20.04 until release time), then you can also use #ubuntu-quality via IRC or telegram, however general support should still go to #ubuntu+1 sites until focal fossa has been released and reached stable 20.04). help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs NOTE: As you installed it I'd recommend using a quality/+1 site and/or filing a bug – guiverc Apr 21 at 7:36
  • @guiverc yes I have installed it. I forgot that this is a development release and my question will be off-topic for two more days. – TwentyCharMax Apr 21 at 7:37

    20.04 was off-topic yesterday, today it is on-topic, what joy is there in closing a question on a technicality? @TwentyCharMax I get the disk check every time I boot a 20.04 Live/Persistent drive. If I am slow hitting ctl-c it tales a few minutes to close. This is very irritating. Good subject for a Bug Report. – C.S.Cameron Apr 24 at 7:06

Hope this works for you, in brief:

tune2fs -c 0 /dev/yourdevicehere
