Windows 10 Check Disk at startup after creators update

My Windows 10 laptop with only SSD has been installed the creators update successfully. However, every time I turn it on and login to system, the Check Disk Utility will be performed at startup automatically, or a message saying “To stop chkdsk, press any key within 8 seconds” pops up. I have never scheduled its run and could not figure out how to resolve the problem.

The Chkdsk.exe can check for errors in the disk media and in the file system and fix them. But the Check Disk Utility always runs at every startup in Windows 10. The issue only happens after installed the creators update

How to remove or disable Disk Check at the startup on Windows 10
* First make sure any external HDD have not connected to your PC. If have, unplug it and restart to check if it is fine.
* At startup, let the chkdsk to run and wait it for completing the process. If it fails, you could boot to safe mode to try that.
* Then type CMD in Start menu, right click on Command Prompt, select “Run as administrator” option to open the elevated Command Prompt. Type the command:
chkdsk /r
and press Enter to execute it. You PC will be restarted and take a while to run chkdsk to completion

By the Registry
* Press Win + R from your keyboard, type regedit.exe in Run dialog box, and click OK button to open the Registry Editor.
* In the left side, double click/tap on the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, and navigate to the sub-location below:

SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\

* Select the “Session Manager” key, and go to its right side pane.
* Double click on the AutoChkSkipSystemPartition, change its value data from 0 to 1, and click OK button to save changes. The “AutoChkSkipSystemPartition” had been added during the creators update and it apparently didn’t list before.
* Then change its value of BootExecute from autocheck autochk * /. to autocheck autochk *, and click OK.
