    Can someone give me any advice?
    You might have solved your problem, but I just had the anniversary update. The next time I turned on my computer I got a black screen with the circling dots. This went on for several hours. I dug for information too, and saw a one-liner about unplugging USB devices. The very second I unplugged my Logitech Wireless Mouse; Win10 booted and gave me the logon screen. No mouse of course. Power shut down and rebooted to BIOS to see that my USB's had been put to sleep. Activated them and booted again. After Win10 was fully loaded, plugged mouse into USB and Win10 did a driver install. All good so far. I cannot imagine most people will know their USB's were shut down and were locking them out Win10. What kind of update does such a thing? How do they expect a normal person to fix it? Well, if you have something plugged in a USB port and cannot boot Win10, try unplugging it and resetting the USB in your BIOS.

    I had a similar experience after a recent update. When that black screen showed up, I cut the power and on rebooting checked the BIOS and the boot-up had switched from the HDD to the DVD. I switched it back to HDD and then it booted normal.

Very slow boot after Anniversary update
I had no problems with Windows 10 start times but since the Anniversary update, boot time is just under 3 minutes. Any ideas to what to look into for the cause?

Slow boot time after AU update
I am using an NVME drive and used to get a 10 second boot time, but after the AU update its nearly 50 seconds. I haven't added any more programs to startup, so why is this happening. Would like to know if there is a fix. Thanks
