    Windows 10: Slow boot time on SSD 6-mins OS loading screen


    Windows 10 screen takes 6-minutes on average. Which is really frustrating since I occasionally boot to/from Ubuntu. I noticed the issue a few weeks ago. Before that I would barely see the loading screen( only for 2 seconds tops ).

    Tried these so far;

    - Disable fast boot
    - Full clean and reinstall of Video Drivers
    - Reset Windows( Without saving documents )
    - Windows Performance Recorder ( Shows my boot as 30 seconds which is complately false )
    - Disable startup apps ( Shouldn't matter since that is AFTER the loading screen but done for the sake of doing it )

    Only hint I got about it is from this thread:
    Slow boot time on SSD (during OS loading screen) - Windows 10 Forums

    %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -hybrid -f -t 00
    With this command, which apparently equals to hibernate + fast boot, my loading screen duration goes back to 1-2seconds. However it doesn't work on restart and it is pretty much a bandaid.

    I assume some will blame the dual-boot situation, please keep in mind this problem is really recent and I have been using the setup without any problems until now.

    Thanks a lot for the update. I definitely suspect the windows updates aswell, since Reset did not work. Reset keeps Windows in it's updated state apparently.

    Going to wait for a fix I guess. I need the updates to run Windows Store games unfortunately. It is just weird that only a minority experiences these issues.

    I would recommand you take a boot tace using Windows Performance Toolkit. This way I can examin your boot process and eventually get a clue of what's causing the delay;

    Here is the steps to do:
    Download and Install windows Performance Toolkit Download and install the Windows ADK | Microsoft Docs . Choose the package corresponding to your Windows version.
    - Record a trace using Windows Performance Recorder using these options: Article not found Compress the resulting file
    - Share it through Free file transfer, send large files - TransferNow or any other file sharing platform.

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

    See you…

    Hey Zinou

    3 iterations: Download - TransferNow

    I have already gone through these. As I already stated on the main post, these logs doesn't catch that first loading. It probably starts logging right after it. So I don't really think you can find anything that will help, even though I hope you can.

    meh cant afford to have a Windows 10 OS without any updates.
    I'm suffering from the same issue where boot degradation occurs after several weeks, and im using an ASUS motherboard too, so i seriously suspect something about the compatibility of these boards with Windows 10.

    Im hanging my hopes on the Spring Creators Update to somehow fix this issue, but i seriously doubt that.

    Can whoever has this slow boot time check the "Last BIOS time" value on Task Manager - Startup tab?
    Mine shows 14s after reboot, if you have fast startup enabled and you shutdown, it will be accumulated until next reboot / shutdown without fast startup.
