•chkntfs /x ?:
•chkdsk /f /r ?: (To manually run a full chkdsk on the drive)
•Y ..... (To accept having it run on the next boot)
but upon the scan making it to 10% on step 1 it skips to step 2 and only completes 10% then logs into windows normally as if nothing happened...

If all else fails, get a new drive and clone the old to the new.

At the prompt in the Command window, type the following commands, pressing "Enter" after each one:
Please, note the spaces.
* chkntfs /d <--- (This will reset autocheck options to default...will come back invalid on some installations)
* chkntfs /c C: <--- (This will allow checking the specified drive )
* chkntfs /x C: <--- (The x switch tells Windows to NOT check the specified drive on the next boot)
At this point, restart your computer, it will not do a chkdsk and will boot directly to Windows.
This next step is important as this is where the Dirty Bit will be unset.
Click Start, then Run, type cmd in the Open box and click "OK".
At the command prompt, type the following, pressing "Enter" after each one:
Again, note the spaces.
* chkdsk /f /r C: <--- (To manually run a full chkdsk operation on the specified drive)
* Y <--- (To accept having it run on the next boot)
This should take you through 5 stages of the scan and will unset the Dirty Bit.
Be patient...this is a very thorough check and will take quite a while.
Finally, when the chkdsk operation has completed, type:
fsutil dirty query C:
press "Enter", and Windows will confirm that the Dirty Bit is not set on that drive.
Reboot again and see if chkdsk still runs on startup.
even after doing this it still says volume C: is Dirty
