Actually, THAT is the very reason we ask for the option to be able to cancel a running fsck. You can never predict EVERY situation when fsck would be run but needed to be avoided.
Maybe I asked a non tech to simply turn on the machine, how technical does one need to be to do that. I would most certainly instruct such a person to NOT make any choices during boot but let it run with the default.
All those suggestions with auto changing the boot options would not help and the system would run fsck. With modern harddisk sizes that would pretty much guarantee that the disk would be >500GB or even >1TB. That person would then call me and I would know exactly what is going on but my only choice would be to say, touch luck, just wait. Too bad you will now be too late for .....

Keep in mind that interrupting fsck is regarded as a very very bad practice by every link brought by a google search using key words "interrupting fsck". All sorts of doom to your file system is predicted in each. It's been that way since I first installed Linux via Slackware floppies. I can't imagine ALL of them being stupid. :) Ric
