How disable disk checking at startup?
Read this article (written for NT/2k but applies to XP as well).
You will find information in it about chkntfs.exe, a command line utility to exclude drives from chdsk, but also about the relevant registry keys and about chkdsk in general.
It's actually a different function named autoscan.
Disable auto scan:
On the right side look for (or create the dword value): AutoChkTimeOut
Double Click an set to 0 (zero) to disable.
