    Windows 10 Slow boot plz help


    Hello, so windows 10 takes 15 mins to boot. the booting logo is laggy and moves in a circle slowly. it used to boot within 10 seconds, i have tried these fixes to no avail
    - Disable/enable fast startup
    - Edit virtual memory
    - reset BIOS to reccomended
    - disable all start up programs.

    I do not have any idea what else to do, help would be much appreciated, i haven't came across a similar issue with the boot logo lagging i can post a youtube video to show if it would help troubleshoot

    it had an unactivated windows 10 version. I bought windows 10 pro did a clean install and then 1 day later it began happening, i have not added new hardware ps the pc runs great after it boots up. the only thing i did wrong was defrag a 2tb ssd, i learned that you shouldn't only after i did it

    Was it an actual defragmentation of the drive? Or was trimmed? If it was an actual defragmentation of the ssd that is my conclusion of what the problem is. Sounds like an issue I've delt with before.

    yeah it was a defragment using the windows program that performs it. I just woke up today and my system boots within 7 seconds so i created a restore point. im hoping the problem doesnt arise again

    It was just doing updates. That will take a number of days. A lot of the updates install after a Restart or Bootup.

    Nothing to do with using optimisation on an SSD. Windows knows the difference and applies the right optimisation method for SSDs, or indeed HDDs.

    Can you confirm? No need to turn off defrag when upgrading from HDD to SSD? Windows 10 detects and sets optimization appropriately? In the distant past I remembered having to disable defrag.

    Lastly- Are there other settings that should be addressed when upgrading from HSS to SSD?

    Yes, no need to do anything about defrag.

    No other settings need to be changed for a SSD.

    Use Autoruns to check / disable stuff load on start up and run sfc / scannow from an admin command prompt. Post a boot trace if you still have problems.

    Windows 10 treats SSD drives and HDD drives differently and will either defrag (HDD) or optimize (SSD) the drive. However, it's not "quite" that cut and dry as linked in this tutorial - How to Optimize and Defragment Drives in Windows 10

    That said Windows 10 handles optimizing drives very well so there's no need to worry. I've got five SSD drives (no HDD's) in my System and have no concerns about Windows' handling them.
