    Is it taking a long time to boot into windows AFTER your bios has loaded? are you talking about total boot time including bios load? if you have an ssd windows should boot to desktop quickly but it doesnt start booting until your bios has loaded some motherboards especially thoise with XMP ram and overclocked systems can take what seems like an age to finish checking bios , fast boot wont make any differance in this instance. Once you see that blue window or that spinning circle for the first time thats windows loading anything before that you cant change (enabling fast boot in bios makes the system do less checks and can save a second or two but it wont make "windows" boot any faster

    Is there a big difference in RAM between these 2 systems. That could explain the different boot times.

    Both with 8gb: laptop=ddr3 1600, desktop=ddr4 2666
    laptop boots bios and windows faster than desktop
    23sec boot on desktop is bios + windows. not that bad but could be better
    anyway, no GOP graphic card meens no fastboot as explained here: How Can I Configure Windows 8 Ultra-Fast Boot UEFI GOP? - Configuration - Windows 8

    Just to report:
    - I manage to make a GOP vbios using a tool from win-raid site and it's working !
    - However boot time continued a bit slow, far lower compared to my cheaper laptop
    - Then I discovered my 2 hdds have an impact: an old velociraptor from 2009 slow down the boot by 2 sec, a seagate 4TB from 2014 slows the boot by 6.5 secs !!
    - That's it, I don't know what more I can do.

    I'm getting ready to put together my new system tonight and in preparation I pulled a couple hard drives from my old system to get it ready to transfer from my father-in-law. I noticed faster boot times after I pulled the two hard drives. I'm going to want 3 hard drives in my new system in addition to my SSD - new system have all SATA III controllers (but only 1 hard drive and the SSD are SATA III) so I hope the two older hard drives don't slow things down too much.

    Does this post really belong here and how does it relate to the OPs problem.

    It looks like the BIOS needs that amount of time to check out the devices. It is a bit long though.

    Actually, it's windows 10 which is slower when the 2 hdds are connected. Bios boot does not seems to be slower.

    Start the system in BIOS and Load defaults settings.
    Disable Network PXE boot, Change SSD as first boot priority. Enable the fastboot if disabled .
    This will solve your problem. Good luck!
