    Win10 Fast Startup Kernel Boot Errors

    Hi everyone...

    I have received some critical kernel boot messages in Event Viewer after every start-up. Just a few pointers:

    - Fast Startup is Enabled
    - UEFI Fast Boot is enabled in BIOS

    These are the error messages:

    1. Event ID 29: Windows failed fast startup with error status 0xC00000D4
    2. Event ID 41: The previous system shutdown at TIME on DATE was unexpected

    Now this only happens if I unplug my PC after Windows 10 has shut down. If my PC is still plugged in when turned off, there's no issue. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought hybrid shutdowns (and hibernates for that matter) require no AC power to be functional - as opposed to Sleep which keeps RAM powered.

    Any ideas as to what the issue might be? I've done plenty of Google searches but they've all come empty handed.

    My hardware is as follows:

    Intel i7-3770k
    Asus P8Z77-V Pro Motherboard
    16GB RAM
    NVIDIA GTX 650
    Seagate 7200rpm 2TB
    Windows 10
    Note: I have an SD Card Reader plugged into the motherboard.

    Thanks and have a great weekend!

    Hi, I have a ASUS and get that kind of problem. (i3-3220t) was upped from win 8 - 8.1 - win10.

    When I plug in a usb dvb-t stick fast boot fails next boot but after that it seems to boot ok.

    Oh but I think when you unplug power you wil get a slow boot, thta ii think is a feature, a way of forcing a slow boot I think,
    anyhow there is simple solution, leave the AC plugged in!!

    Have a nice year!!

    Fast startup is a little weird in some cases, and lots of people have had problems with it.

    It works great, but, you need to make sure there were no modifications done to the computer after the shutdown is completed.

    If I shut it down with USBs plugged in, they need to be kept plugged in. If I unplugged them, there is a change in the BIOS and the hybrid start fails as hardware changes were made.

    Same as unplugging the system. It makes a change in the BIOS and causes the startup to fail as the system has to redetect the hardware. I've noticed the BIOS boots different on a fast startup shutdown and a full shutdown

    Good article here: The Pros and Cons of Windows 10’s “Fast Startup” Mode

    I have it disabled on all my computers. The weird problems far outweigh any benefit, at least for me.
