    Great analysis work, Zine. You did it again! Keep up the great work.
    Thank you Ed. I hope that it will help @GarySt to solve his problem.

    Thanks Zine, the trouble shooter!

    I have completed both of your suggestions: the noMachine was uninstalled; and the Intel tool was updated.
    Though it did help a bit by reducing the boot up time by about 10 sec, it's still about 100 sec total, as the boot record below shows:

    Any further suggestions?

    Actually I don't know how to find out if I did install the new Intel Management Engine driver; I did run the tool I downloaded but I'm not sure the driver was updated.

    Okay, I've worked out something now, but I'm not sure about it:
    Zine was correct! The problem was with Intel Management Engine Driver. I downloaded the latest one, and presumably ran it. But the driver did not seem to be updated, and in fact in the Device Manager it said that this driver has a problem and "cannot start", or something like that. So I simply Disabled this driver (in the Device Manager), and the boot up time now is very quick again (~10 sec) !

    Question: is it okay to disable this driver?

    Yes I think you can disable it without problem.

    Make sure you are running the command under "%programfiles(x86)%\Windows Kits\10\Windows Performance Toolkit" path.
    If it doesn't work try recording the trace using the graphical version of the tool. Here is the steps:

    1. Download and Install windows Performance Toolkit . Choose the package corresponding to your Windows version.
    2. When running the setup select only Windows Performance Toolkit.
    3. Record a trace using Windows Performance Recorder using these options:
    4. Compress the resulting file.
    Sorry for hijacking the thread. I'm facing similar problems with my Dell Inspiron 15 5577. It boots up very slowly and this has been happening since I updated my laptop to Windows 10 April Update.

    I've uploaded the Windows Performance Recorder files, could someone please guide why it takes a long time to boot.

    Hi @aby,

    You have opened a thread related to your problem So I'll reply there Long shutdown and restart time in Windows 10

    Your boot trace was not well recorded, run the command I posted in the new thread.

    did you ran this command with the "-filemode" at the end ? wpr -start GeneralProfile -start CPU -onoffscenario Boot -onoffresultspath c:\wpr -numiterations 1 -filemode
    I can't see the boot phases in your trace !

    Yes, I did.

    I hope you have analyzed the file which I compressed.
