MS-DOS did.  Of course, that hardly qualifies as an operating system.
Modern Windows definitely _does_ do a filesystem consistency check after a 
crash.  It's a bit better than most traditional UNIX systems about also 
automatically _repairing_ any problems it finds, so you have a fairly good 
chance of your system actually coming up afterward.
