    Windows 7

    My W10 needs twice the time to boot compared to W8.1 - in an exact same environment. And for the rest I would wait for the RTM and a normal setup system. W7 Beta was extremely fast too.

    My 7 boots up in 45sec max. That to me is acceptable for a very stable and highly compatible OS.

    Is your W10 an upgrade or clean install? It all depends on installed programs on your system especially if you have a lot of programs that loads on start up.
    Also, if you have an external hard drive plugged in, that also slows down your boot up time. The system scans all connected hardware on boot up.

    Windows 8.1, Win10Pro

    Unless you disabled FastStartup, when you're booting W10, you're really just waking it up from hibernation -- so, in that case, it's bound to be a lot faster than cold booting Win7.

    Another contributing factor is the amount of stuff you have auto-loading during startup. Since Win7 has been around for a long time, it's likely you have a lot of stuff; whereas, with Win10, you may have a lot less stuff that auto-loads.

    I've disabled FastStartup in Win8 & Win10, and those both load a little faster than Win7 -- but in Win7, I have more stuff auto-loading than in the others. If I go to the trouble to run MSCONFIG and disable all the startup stuff, Win7 boots in much the same time as the others.

    Nah, this is a naked system which was an upgrade. Only 2 programs installed - CCleaner and WinDirStat. This compares to Win8.1 which is in exactly the same environment and has a LOT of programs installed.

    In our tests, Windows 8.1 is faster than Windows 10, and both are faster than Windows 7.

    I have a dual boot set up(Win8.1.1/Win10) and the difference in boot time is hardly noticeable.. to me at least.

    Boot times of Win 10 and Win 8.1 are very very close. I can't feel any significant difference.

    Feel is one thing, measured data is another. Check Event 100 in the event viewer. That will give you the exact boot times.
