I have the same issue in 32 bit ubuntu 12.04, it keeps checking for disk
errors every time it boots.

  Checking disk drives for errors at every boot

Status in “util-linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu 12.04

  util-linux 2.20.1-1ubuntu3

  At absolutely every boot, fsck starts a disk drive check, causing a long wait with the message checking disk drives for errors. No error is found though, and the preceding shutdown is done regularly. Whether you let the check finish or cancel it, it will invariably keep coming up in the next boot.
  I've tried tune2fs -c 0 -i 0 [My boot drive], no difference. However, if I check with tune2fs -l , I see the command has worked fine though.
  I checked my boot partition from a live boot session with tune2fs -l, without mounting the partition of course, and saw that the filesystem state was set "not clean", whereas it wasn't mounted, which I guess is not normal and may be the cause for the needless systematic disk drive check. So, could the problem be when 12.04 unmounts the boot partition at shutdown?
  Many have the same issue and you can have a look at this forum thread : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1973178

  This seems  hugely obvious however I can't see it's been reported...
