[CentOS] Very Delayed Boot on CentOS 7 (With default XFS)

Hi List

I'm testing a VM installation of CentOS 7,(kernel 3-10.0-327) with the
default XFS filesystem on the root.

During boot up, the VM pauses for about 80 seconds at the following message:

"Started filesystem check on /dev/mapper/centos-root"

... And then the boot continues.

Looking at the fstab, I see the 6th field is set to 0 , so I expect
filesystem checking to be disabled, but no ...

Has anyone encountered this issue before ? Is there a way I can reduce
the time to boot up at this point?

Thanks in advance,
