    Done and done, still no improvement to boot times.

    Hi,

    The boot trace you recorded is damaged! Can you record another ?
    Did you get a chance to view my boot trace? I uploaded another once since the previous expired Filebin | xtc34lru3x3v8x8n this expires in 6 days. Thank you.

    It didn't show any significant delay!

    Yes I did, now Disk 1 only has one partiton (primary partition )

    Boot partition: MBR or GPT?
    SSD BIOS set to SATA or AHCI?

    If the issue still persists, maybe you left Fast Startup enabled on the old laptop and disabled it on the new computer?
    Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10

    Maybe you hooked the HDD up to a port that shares bandwidth with the SSD? You verified in Device Manager that all the necessary drivers are properly installed and devices started successfully, right? Another thing is, sometimes it can help to update drivers and BIOS (firmware). Simply relying on Windows Update to receive the latest drivers is very often a bad idea, as a lot of drivers that get published on Windows Update Catalog from M$ are still outdated (and can be so heavily outdated that they cause all sorts of weird problems in fact, which makes it even harder to troubleshoot other problems). Also, each time when either you do a clean install or you do a repair (in-place upgrade) of Windows you should first remember to physically unplug all USB devices excepting only those ones that are needed to get the job done, like keyboard+mouse.

    I think it is set to AHCI.
    Gigabyte MB "Sata mode selection" AHCI other option is Intel RST premium.

    The Boot partition says it is NTFS in Disk Management.

    I'll double check on my mb's manual about the bandwdth thing. The necessary drivers are installed especially for the SSD I downloaded crucial's software and updated it. I did unplug the old HDD when I reinstalled windows onto the SSD.

    In BIOS settings, have you tried to experiment with M.I.T. | Advanced Memory Settings | Memory Boot Mode | Enable Fast Boot and BIOS Features | Fast Boot | Ultra Fast?

    I have a new crucial mx500 SSD and it takes a long time to boot. Not INSANELY long times, but 15+ seconds on the BIOS splash screen plus like 6+ on the windows login screen. My older laptop with old SSD boots in less than half the time, so it's way too slow for SSD.

    I followed instructions here and did a boot trace: Boot Time painfully slow on WD m.2 SSD Drive, here is the zipped file link : Deleted | file.io from @bro67

    I tried disabling all unecessary startup items, also tried doing minimal safe boot and it still took as long to boot.

    Of note I have an HDD in my system, but all the install files are on the SSD (I disconnected HDD during windows installation). Any ideas on things to try? Thank you.
    Just came across a similar situation with the clients system.
    Download the crucial storage executive (Crucial Storage Executive Tool | Firmware Download | Crucial.com), check a firmware update is needed also check Windows that you have any specific needed SSD drivers installed.
    Do you have a lot of I/O during the slow or zero activity?
    Lastly, are you booting as EFI or BIOS?
    Try the following and reset your system BIOS to the often commonly found "optimized defaults".

    To me it sounds like it's looking for something until a timeout.
