Linux: Ubuntu installation – skip disk checking

During the installation process of Ubuntu and other Linux installers there is an automatic filesystem check that takes place. Typically this should not be skipped, but there are cases when it needs to be skipped, including installing to a server over a slow network.

  1. On boot press e to drop into the grub bootloader
  2. Change the following: Linux /casper/vmlinuz quiet —
    to
    Linux /casper/vmlinuz fsck.mode=skip —
  3. Click ctrl + x
