    Windows 10 boot time problem.


    Hi,

    a while ago I bought a new SSD because I had begun to fill my current with games and such and it seemed at the time a smart option to have the OS on one drive and have all games on another one. And then I used Samsung's Magician software to clone or was it to migrate my W7 OS and later I upgraded to W10. Well now in the nearby past days I've had problems with the boot time.

    Normally I thought that the SSDs would boot Windows in less than 20 seconds but with mine it takes closer to a minute or more, it hangs at the Windows 10 boot logo the window in blue for a minute maybe or more, there are no spinning dots in a circle at the bottom, it just sits there and chills.

    I think it might be because that when I did the migration it left the System Reserved linked to my old OS drive but when I look under my computer it does say that there is a System Reserved drive for my current OS drive but it's almost empty. Is it so that my only option would be to reinstall Windows as from what I can tell a migration isn't like a reinstall?

    Or is there maybe another reason why my OS drive is booting so slowly?

    Cheers, Boris

    Hi Boris,

    If the slow boot has only recently started it is more likely to be connected with a windows update rather than any reserved partitions especially if it was OK for a while after you upgraded to W10.

    First make sure that the update hasn't changed any settings that relate to boot time such as turning off Fast start-up.

    If this is all OK then you can go into the Windows Update advanced options, view your update history and uninstall the recent Windows cumulative update. See if this puts the boot time back to where it was. If so, you know the cause but not the reason. The update will probably come back again but we are due for a new update very soon which might fix some of the issues these previous updates have been causing.

    Use Winver in a command prompt to check which version and build you are on and let us know.

    ´Hi phil,

    what about that System Reserved, would it cause anything like explained above?

    I'll have to check those things later, am on another computer right now!

    I am sure the old System Reserved partition just sits there and does not matter, you also indicate there is a new one on the SSD which would have been created when you cloned the old drive.

    Maybe it is worth you posting your Disk Management view so that a few of us can take a look?

    Hi phil.

    I checked the power options but there is no option for fast boot or anything similar?

    Here is my disk management page:

    Hi Boris,

    If you do not see the Fast Start-up option as explained in the link I provided then it is probably because you have Hibernate disabled.

    The disk management looks fine as far as I can tell.

    Lets see if we can get the Fast startup working (once you have hibernate enabled) to see if it makes some improvement for you. Here is the tutorial again:

    Hi Phil,

    Well I did enable hibernate but there is no new option under "Choose what the power buttons do" so I'm not sure I understand this.

    And yes the disk management looks good if you are just looking at it but the C drive's system reserved is not the 448MB drive it rather uses the G drive's 209MB and I've always wondered if it is a bit fishy.

    Yes that would worry me too because it is labelled incorrectly and must cause some conflict during the boot process. I think this needs an expert on partition management - @topgundcp perhaps?
