Prevent Server With File System Corruption From Running CHKDSK on Reboot

I have a old Window 2003 server that I need to reboot one final time before the decommission process is complete. The C:\ is marked as dirty. I need to make sure that chkdsk will not run on reboot since I do not have remote access.

I have read multiple artilces that I can update the autocheck autochk *  in the registry to include include the /k swith to exclude a drive but when I run chkdsk /? I do not see /k as an option
