    Please clarify- when you say - I think it was 163s for your SSD with 20H2 boot time.. was that the time for a cold boot to the lock screen being displayed?

    With a SSD that should be around 12-14s, for example, depending on precise hardware params and possibly software.

    To analyse a slow boot (and there have been reports of this - feel free to search tenforums for e.g. 'slow boot') you can use the Windows Performance Analyser (free from MS).

    You can find examples of its use and screenshots if you search tenforums.

    Using this tool is somewhat techincal. It gives a graphical representation of events vs time, so it can be seen where undue time is spent. Perhaps only one member here is particularly familiar with its use.

    Did your boot time increase suddenly after a feature update (upgrade), for example? Was there a point at which this occurred?

    Hi Matthew
    If I use the benchmark test of HD Tune I see appr. 200 MB/s consistently. No errors.

    Hi dalchina
    1. The time was provided by the start-time.vbs script, which I got from Matthew.
    2. Performance issue has been present ever since I upgraded from win7. Also tried clean install at some point, same issue.
    3. I have tried Matthew's suggestions, but still don't know root cause for this slowness issue.
    4. May comparison between XP and win10 is unfair - I was just wondering why win10 is much slower and want to debug that issue.

    I'd suggest trying Safe Mode boot and see it it is still slow to boot in Safe Mode.

    Boot into Safe Mode on Windows 10

    If it's a much faster boot in Safe Mode then I'd ask what security software you have installed?

    Then I'd check event viewer for clues.

    See Posts #3 & #4 here:

    PC boot time suddenly increases

    If you import custom views into Event Viewer check Event ID's 101, 102, 103, 106 and 109

    Find whatever is taking the longest. I would suspect a service under Event ID 106.

    Other than that it might be trial and error to eliminate possible culprits.

    Try disabling it and use only Microsoft Defender.

    You could just try removing Avast using the dedicated uninstaller then reboot and test. If it makes no difference you can reinstall Avast.

    I will rephrase, as they say in court:

    What is the time for a cold boot to the lock screen being displayed?

    Long clarification: I want to be sure you are not automatically logging in (no login prompt) and therefore giving a time after startups have been executed.

    *** you say:

    I was just wondering why win10 is much slower and want to debug that issue.
    I have already stated the appropriate tool to use, other than trial and error.

    Hi Matthew
    What is the reason that I don't always get the output for restart-time.vbs?
    Could this be caused by avast?
    Anyway I will try uninstalling avast (and may be also system mechanic).

    Hi Dalchina
    There is no automatic login, the time to get the login prompt is OK, issue is time from you login until apps are ready.

    Do you mean you get no VBScript pop-up after restart? If so, there could be something wrong with your system.

    Or perhaps Avast blocks VBScript.

    Now that's important clarification - so you mean your basic boot time to the lock screen is around 12-14s or perhaps a bit more.

    After that, what startups do you have?

    Tools:
    a. task manager list
    b. Autoruns (free from MS) - lists everything- far more than the task manager.
