    Very slow start up when using Restart


    I can't recall when exactly this problem started but I have had it for quite a while now, it might have begun after the last feature update. For one reason or another my PC takes very long to start up if I select "Restart", around 2 minutes 45 seconds from the moment the motherboard splash screen appears to the moment that I get into the Windows lock screen. If I select "Shutdown" and then start the computer from the physical power button the start up up time is what you would normally expect, around 10 seconds.

    I have my W10 installed on an SSD and I have already tried disabling/re-enabling the "Fast Startup" setting from power options but it does not seem to have effect. I am using Windows 10 Pro 64 bit version 1709 (OS build 16299.251). I have the latest drivers installed on all of my devices

    Hi,
    In order to troubleshoot your issue, you should follow these steps:

    - Download and Install windows Performance Toolkit https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...ed/adk-install . Choose the package corresponding to your Windows version.
    - Record a trace using Windows Performance Recorder using these options: https://justpaste.it/1g4sx- Compress the resulting file
    - Share it through dropbox, google drive or any other file sharing platform.

    I'll analyze your trace file and give you a feedback.

    Did you notice which part takes longest ? closing windows probably ? That would mean some process is stuck and not closing in timely manner.

    Windows closes at normal speed, it's the start up that takes long. And only when start up is part of using Restart.

    OK, where is the bottleneck than ? In BIOS Until first windows circle comes up, until sign in screen or after it until windows are usable ?

    This motherboard splash screen is where the circle just keeps spinning for almost 3 minutes.Click image for larger version.

    The boot trace can't help, your delay occurs before the OS loader !

    check if you boot in UEFI and not in bios legacy.

    Check that by type msinfo command:

    Correct, that suggests to me that BIOS can't read EFI partition properly and in timely manner. Check in BIOS if it's set to UEFI (CSM) in some models and that it's set to read that first.

    According to msinfo my BIOS Mode is set to UEFI

    in BIOS my boot mode is set to "UEFI and Legacy". I tried changing it to UEFI only but that didn't change anything.
