    BOOTLOG NOT Loaded, Slow Boot, Windows boot circle spinning slowly


    Hello, I have this issue for a few month. I couldn't be able to solve it. I tried Secure Erase, clean installation of windows 10, also tried it on a different motherboard. Secure erase and formatting the drive seems to solve the issue for a few days but it happens shortly after. The SSD was converted from MBR to GPT. Please help.

    Out of interest, when you performed the Clean Install, did you disconnect ALL other HDD's, SSD's, USB's?

    No my HDD was plugged. I installed the OS to my SSD with USB.

    Reset BIOS to its factory default and if you want to enable quick boot (fast boot) mode from BIOS setup utility.

    I only asked because we have a lot of members who perform a Clean Install with OTHER drives attached during installation. This can lead to problems either booting the OS, or problems once the OS has been booted. Here is something I wrote for members as part of the Clean Install process.

     Disconnect ALL Other Disks

    It is highly recommended that you disconnect [ temporarily unplug ] ALL other Disks [ HDD's/SSD's/USB's ] BEFORE installing Windows. The reasons for this are . . .

    [1] You CAN'T accidentally OVERWRITE a connected Disk.
    [2] The BOOTLOADER [ boot configuration files ] will get installed on the correct Disk [ because Windows has the tendency to install the bootloader rather randomly on ANY connected Disk ], and therefore STOP problems with booting once the installation is complete.

    Once the installation is complete . . .

    • Check the OS boots correctly.
    • Check if the boot order in the BIOS/UEFI settings are correct [ if NOT, adjust them accordingly ].
    • Reconnect the other Disks.

    EXPLANATION:

    Windows uses a different partition structure for BIOS/UEFI. During the installation process, Windows asks which Disk/Partition you want to use for the Windows C:\ drive, it DOESN'T however, necessarily use the same Disk for the other Partitions, and can therefore incorrectly create the hidden recovery partition on any attached Disk.

    Additionally, for BIOS, if another Disk is left attached, and at a latter stage you remove that Disk, you will find that the OS will NOT boot. If you check the BIOS, you will see that the OS has assigned the AHCI/RAID setting instead of the Legacy setting and set it up as RAID, therefore breaking the boot process.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks for the answer. If I clean install again with other drives unplugged, will the hidden partition on my other disk stay? Do I Have to format it as well? And currently the system is able to boot If I unplugged the other disk but in the same way as It is plugged.

    If the OS boots and runs without problems with the HDD drive disconnected, then it has nothing to do with the BOOTLOADER [ boot configuration files ] being misdirected during installation.

    It was just a thought.

    I hope this helps.
