    Windows 10 Home x64 (Laptop), Windows 10 Pro x64 (Desktop)

    My PCs boot from an SSD. Windows fast start up in not much faster so I turned it off. The BIOS fast boot can create some oddities. I have one PC where the Gigabyte ultra fast boot option doesn't recognise the keyboard when using the safe menu boot options but works using the standard fast boot option.

    In the end, it is rather pointless trying to generalise on whether fastboot is good or not. For many it works, for some it does not.

    Answer is simple:-

    Try it - if you get issues, turn it off - end of story.

    I do not like SSD, period (driver issues and others), and I will never ever buy one. I have short-stroked my HDD to boost its speed. Newer is not always better, just like CRTs were better in every way, but they have been replaced by LCD anyway.

    It seems some Radeon graphics users with multi-monitor setups may be experiencing problems with fast startup after the CU - related to the different driver installed.

    Drive issues? I've never installed a driver for an SSD, they generally do not need drivers (maybe 1st generation ssds on old versions of windows prior to windows 8 or old motherboards did). There are two types of ssds i worked with, one the 2.5" type works just like any other SATA hard drive to the system, you plug it in the same way and to the system it is just a really fast SATA drive.. The other, my first experience this week, an m.2, you just drop it in make sure bios recognizes it (might have to make sure bios is auto/sata mode for m.2 port) again treats it like any SATA drive, you can raw install windows or whatever else (such as hackintosh or whatever) right onto the ssd without concern for drivers.

    There is nothing inherent in Fast boot that is either good or bad. It is good in some situations and not in others.
    Windows is designed for a wide and diverse market and for a wide range of different hardware. In some situations Ready boot is a good thing, in others, not so good, and in others it is hard to say. If it was always good there would be no provision to turn it off. If it was always bad it never would have been provided at all.

    As for SSDs.
    There is little doubt that at some time in the future they will completely replace conventional drives. Conventional drives will no longer be sold and the only place they will be found is in a museum and old collections. We will marvel that such primitive things were ever used. I have lived long enough to see this kind of thing more than once.

    W10 pro x64 and W8.1 x86

    I thought I would try this (turning OFF fast boot) to see the difference, if any, that this made. I use an SSD and know that W10 boots up in 11 seconds consistently, day in day out. It never varies.

    With fast boot off that has increased to nearer 20 seconds. Fwiw, I can not say I have ever encountered an issue with using fast boot.

    Hi,
    The only other benefit is if one looses power/ battery dies... then hibernation = fast start in 10 might save whatever one is working on.
    So if one has a ups backup battery one really has that bas covered and is a more reliable way to insure one has time to safely save and shutdown rather than reling on an os's feature to save ones a$$

    Drivers? What drivers? I've got SSDs in two desktops and 3 laptops. I've always just moved the HDD to the next higher SATA port, plugged the SSD into the newly vacated SATA port and off to the races. No drivers at all to replace/install.
