    When you installed Windows, did you leave all the drives plugged in. Sometimes Windows installer can install parts of the OS on to secondary drives (not sure why but it can).

    I would recommend if you have the time to consider backing up your files and formatting after having removed all but the OS drive. Also remove all peripherals apart from mouse and keyboard.

    I did a new install without keeping any programs or files. I had all external drives removed but had a USB mouse. I did notice some of my old folders (non windows) was still there and it was a slow boot. Do you think if I formatted the disk and did an new install it would improve boot time? Win 8 and 8.1 was quick with no format

    Make sure you turn off Fast start-up( Power Options) and disable Secure boot(in BIOS) before installation as well.

    How will a new format speed my machine up?

    If you're doing a clean install, you don't have to reformat anything yourself - just select Custom Installation during the clean install and delete all of the partitions on your target disk - WIndows will then create and format the partitions it needs. (See Steps 10 and onward, here: Windows 10 - Clean Install )

    I think I put an almost clean install on my machine - i selected new install without keeping any files or apps. I didn't go into custom installation and delete all partitions there though. Would it make much of a difference ?

    I got this by loading boot time into Event Viewer. I don't exactly know how it works or how can I improve my boot time. Is there anything I can do/should know

    Not likely to make a difference in boot time. I just know that there are certain people (including some forum members) that an extra recovery partition or two leftover would drive crazy and they would insist on recovering the precious 350-500 MB for their 500GB - 1 TB disk's usage - LOL

    You should always get hardware drivers direct from the manufacturer. No telling what might have been done to them otherwise or they might not be what they appear to be.
