Windows 10: systeminfo "System Boot Time" Solved

    systeminfo "System Boot Time"

    I have just noticed that systeminfo "System Boot Time" gives the time of the last reboot, not the last cold startup as I believe it used to do.
    This applies to the other methods such as "C:> NET STATISTICS SERVER" too.

    e.g. Yesterday (30/10/2016) evening at 23:00 I did a "Restart" on the PC.
    I did a "Shutdown" at 23:30.
    This morning (31/10/2016) t 09:00 I powered up from cold.
    systeminfo tells me the last reboot time of 30/10/2016 at 23:00.
    I would rather it told me 31/10/2016 09:00

    How can I get the right date and time of the most recent system startup?

    With Fast Start enabled, Windows shutdown is more closely related to hibernation. Restart rebuilds the opertaing system at startup. Disabling Fast Start forces the operating system to be rebuilt every time. As far as I can see, Fast Start only offers benefits at startup in term of speed, but in every other way is only a nuisance. Certain products require a full shutdown to install properly.

    Thanks again. I had no idea that was the case!
    I did not particularly notice much deterioration in my start-up speed when I unchecked Fast Start, shut down and switched on again after reading your advice.

    IMHO Fast Start is more trouble than worth. I turn it off on all my devices. After every update or upgrade I check to make sure it's still off.
