Solved unable to run chkdsk c: /f at boot time

Specs: Windows 2000 Professional
How can I fix Windows to run chkdsk c: /f at boot time.
I have run it before in the past, but now it gets blocked because it cannot have direct access (I assume that means exclusive access).
Is there a way to make chkdsk the first thing to run at boot time?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Please advise.
Thanks, Tracey
BTW Partition Magic 8 can run at boot time OK.

You would run the cmd in a command window. Is that how you're trying to get the chkdsk to be scheduled? Once you enter the command, it should tell you that it can't be run because the volume is in use. You can then confirm that it should run at boot, then reboot the computer.

I get this message at boot time, but I have run chkdsk c: /f during the boot process before.

Where is the entry to run chkdsk at boot time???
Maybe I can manually do something to get chkdsk C: /f to run at boot time whenever I (want / need).
I was doing multiple things caused the system to be unresponsive.
So I shutdown the computer and restarted.
As usual I get the message that chkdsk cannot get full access to the C drive so the process aborts (again).
However, just to be on the safe side, I ran chkdsk "D" /f at boot time.
This worked and to my amazement chkdsk C /f ran right after checking D.
