    MSI bios boot logo (frozen?)


    So, I followed an advice from somewhere on the internet to do a clean install of windows 10 on my specific model of the laptop. I did because I figured it would be a lot more smooth for basic computing and removing bloatware from MSI. But there is an issue that still happens, even after a clean install. More frequently, when I turn on my laptop, at least every other start up, the msi/bios logo appear for booting up and it stays on there. I would force a power off by holding the power button just so I can turn it back. Usually the 2nd attempt, it goes well with no issues. But it takes 20+ seconds to boot to login screen (windows logon).

    Now what I want to do is get rid of this problem and have my laptop boot much faster than that. I have a Samsung 960 evo 256gb m.3 nvme ssd (as shown in my specs) and that's where I installed windows 10 with its partitions it created during clean install.
    I think I did a clean install the right way and downloaded the necessary drivers for the hardware in my msi gaming laptop.

    Any way I can fix this? I can't seem to find the accurate answer or related post to my problems on the internet search. Much appreciated to those that can give me advice on this..

    oh, I also have another hard drive (1tb 7200 rpm) but no files are stored on it. I plan to replace it with a ssd in the future.

    That suggests a problem with BIOS so I would reset it to factory defaults.

    What's your windows version/build (Run Winver command) ? Have you installed any anti-viruses after your windows installation ?
    Some anti-viruses I came across do a booting diagnostic or scan or attempt to boot pre-windows boot up and may cause that delay effect .

    Wiping everything on my sdd and reinstalling windows again? Or you mean just the BIOS? If so, I will look at my bios and see what I can do then. I'm still somewhat fairly new to pc.

    I only have Windows Defender for now. What do you recommend? Last time I had windows, Microsoft Security Essentials existed then.

    Yes BIOS itself, Windows or any other OS is not active at that time so it has nothing to do with it. Things you can look for in it: Default drive to BOOT from (Including eventual UEFI partition), Default display device (PCIe if there is dedicated GPU) or IGPU if exists. Setting to BOOT from network or to start with a key press etc. Maybe you should start with resetting BIOS ? Check if disk with Windows is in first slot, things like that. Also check to see if that secondary HDD has a BOOT or active partition, that may confuse BIOS. Maybe even disconnect it to test.

    There was an option to load default optimized in the bios. I do have the m.2 nvme ssd as first boot. I am considering on disabling other boot options to insure it only boots from the main drive and not the storage drive (1tb).

    If you have any USB device connected, disconnect for now.
    Go into BIOS:
    1. At boot time, the BIOS is checking for all devices attached to the PC, turn off the MSI boot logo under boot menu so you can see the text displayed of each step and note which device is hanging.
    2. Under Advance->Windows 8/8.1/10: Enable MSI Fast Boot so that BIOS will bypass checking most devices that are none essential for booting. This will improve the boot process. Note that this is different from fast boot that you set in Windows.

    Some third party drivers that you downloaded from the MSI website might not be up to date, try to download the latest driver(s) from the original manufacturers such Intel Chip Set, Network driver etc....

    I don’t think I see an option to do that. I checked both boot and advance settings. On the top shows “aptio setup utility” and I think it’s ver 1.4 since I see it in advance settings. But other than splash screen option, I don’t see it. :/
    Maybe I should update bios if available?

    Are you able to go into the bios and disable the boot screen ? And set the timeout to the lowest number possible (1 second if possible) It should all be under the boot tab.
