    hi there are a lot of factors for boot times I use a program called bootracer its really good and gives you comprehensive details with your machine and booting http://www.greatis.com/bootracer/index.html

    okay, but we are talking about two different things. Bootracer starts counting with the windows boot, and I have 4 stars, which is good enough.
    But I am talking about the pre-boot, that's what is worrying me. I think 8.9 seconds is kind of long for BIOS time, and Bootracer doesn't measure that.
    Or perhaps I am making some mistake in my understanding of boot times?

    go to control panel > administrative tools > system configuration > click on the boot tab and see how many seconds you have in the timeout box

    I have it set for five seconds, but I click through to windows 10 right away, I don't wait around until it boots itself up.

    so was it set at the default setting. I just looked at my bios start up in task manager and my last time was 20 seconds so I would think machines will be different on the bios start up.
