Ubuntu – How to disable filesystem checking on boot in 20.04


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.

  • Hope this works for you, in brief:

    tune2fs -c 0 /dev/yourdevicehere

    Note: yourdevicehere is where your / (root) is mounted. To check its location, run the following command:

    df -h
