    For everything to be running smoothly after windows got installed. About 3 minutes. But that's probably because I didn't have all my applications etc.

    Installing programs doesn't usually greatly impact that boot phase. 3 mins with a HDD is about right, but I understand it's much longer now, so as we know, something's changed since you bought it.

    Yes, try the Safe Mode comparison.

    After that, you've these possible approaches:
    a. analytical - WPA as mentioned above. Only about 1 member here is proficient with this.
    b. experimental- try rolling back selected low-level drivers that might be related. That's just hoping you'll be lucky, but shouldn't have any ill effects and should be reversible.
    c. Review related threads as I mentioned above for ideas.
    d. For a comparison, replace the system disk temporarily with a spare drive, and clean install Win 10. If performance is normal, you then know the rest of the hardware is ok.
    e. Your system should be under warranty. Use manufacturer support in any reasonable way, from their tech support to RMA.

    - Open device manager. Is there any yellow alerts of missing drivers?
    - Do a check disk. Open a CMD window as administrator and type:
    chkdsk c: /f
    It will say your disk is in use and if you want to schedule to next start = yes
    - Try a clean boot.
    Perform a Clean Boot in Windows 10 to Troubleshoot Software Conflicts
    - Turn off fast start. It is more part of a problem than part of a solution.

    There isn't anything yellow in the device manager. Running a disk check now. As for dalchina's post. I will do a safe boot comparison after this.

    I ran a disk check and I don't think it fixed anything, my disk is still at 100% maxing at around 7 mbps.

    - - - Updated - - -

    One second, my computer was on selective startup already. I don't know if this is the problem but I will try it anyway.

    Elementary 'fixes' are very unlikely to help you here.

    My apologies, I put my computer back into the "regular" startup, and I can see the difference in it booting up. Speed wise, but the disk says it's at 100 percent. I looked into it and the max writing should be 100 mbps. It seems that the disk is saying its at 100% but it's really not.

    Can you goto taskmanager then startup and post what you see I would expect a pc of those specs to boot in under 20 seconds

    If you simply copy a large file from desktop to desktop you can see the transfer rate probably at 100% capacity.

    Except I expect you may not even manage 10MB/s.

    And if you were to read the threads on tenforums about this as I suggested, you would learn more.
