Windows 10: Windows 10 - slow startup after restart only
Not slow... REALLY S ... L.... O... W ....
I am having this issue right now. When I say slow, I mean, I clicked "restart" about 2 hours ago. I'm still seeing the "Restarting" message with the spinning dots on the ugly puke-green screen. How long does one wait for this before force-rebooting the machine?? I upgraded from 8.1 last night - desktop. All went fine (till now).....
Disable Trusted Platform Module
Since I found this forum when I was searching for the solution to my slow startup, I wanted to reply with what worked for me. My computer did a fast boot taking less than 20 seconds, but when I restarted it took around 90 seconds.
I tried several different solutions described here and elsewhere, but what finally worked was to go into the device manager and disable my "Trusted Platform Module 2.0" which was listed under "Security Devices".
The reason I thought of disabling the trusted platform module was because it had a little exclamation point next to it. When you opened the device properties, it said "The device cannot start. (Code 10). A protocol error was detected between the driver and the device." I may have eventually been able to fix whatever was keeping the device from starting and thereby fix my issue with the slow start, but I didn't really care about the security device, so I just disabled it instead.
I'm guessing that others who have the slow startup issue might have other devices in the device manager that are malfunctioning. My advice if you're having slow startup is to take a look at your device manager and see if there are any devices that have been noted as having an issue. You can then try to temporarily disable them and see if it makes a difference. If it does make a difference, then you can decide if you want to take the time to resolve the issue with the device or just keep it disabled.
I had a desktop that was performing descent but I wanted to give it an upgrade. I introduced SSD to it and did a clean install. I did have some difficulty after installing it when I place the old hard drive back in to get the data off of it. One of the issue was that the old HHD became the primary drive and it kept booting into it. Eventually, I was able to get it set up the way I want EXCEPT...the computer boots REALLY REALLY SLOW...like almost 5 minutes before the Windows Splash screen pops up. Some times the CPU fan spins at such a high rate, I move away from the computer Once it boots, the computer behaves well as far as I can tell. I upgraded the BIOS and I am guessing it is at this level where I am having issues. Luckily, I have an identical computer at work so I took all the pictures of the settings. I plan to "match" the computer at home. Meanwhile, I am looking for suggestions as to what I can do to make the computer boot at a normal speed - I can live with 1 minute but not 5 minutes. I know 1 min is slow itself but...
I don't have many ideas for you jimnycricket65, but one thought that comes to mind is whether there could still be an operating system on your old drive that could be causing a conflict. I had a situation before when I tried to dual boot with two different operating systems and the end result was that it would only work every other time I booted the system. It would hang on the first boot, and I'd have to force it to shut down and then would boot slowly but successfully the second time.
Strictly Windows 10 only. Remember this is not a cold boot.

Strange. I have a restart button on a gadget control panel and it takes forever to restart. If I use the restart supplied with the Start menu, it is its usual quick self. Problem is that I had to do a restart for Calibre and it too was hung for all...
