    No, will look into it.
    It's almost like the drive(s) boot to slow for the motherboard posting - and by doing second reset the drive has spun up to speed and BIOS is able to read Boot file (probably sounds crazy)

    It sounds like you may benefit from disabling Fast Startup in Power Options, although if that does help, there may be some underlying problem.

    The hard drive spins up as soon as you turn on the computer. It can be the motherboard that is the problem or the SATA cable.

    The Bios does not read the Bootloader. As soon as the bios has a POST with no errors, it hands off to the CPU to trigger the hard drive to start loading from the Boot Sector in the MBR to start the OS boot process.

    If you are installing a prior version of Windows then Windows 10, that is the problem.

    Once you have installed and activated windows 10. You only need to install it on a properly formated hard drive.

    Windows 10 Pro

    I have not done this myself, but I wonder if building a system partition from scratch, using something EasyBCD would help? From what I can see, it's maybe the bootmgr.efi file (and similar files) that are the problem? I'm just proposing here because this is not something I'm all that familiar with.
