    Can't see it anywhere; here's all that's in my Start-Up; most are disabled.

    Boot time's a tad faster at 100 Secs.
    You could try disabling PureSync Tray application and Switchboard server to improve the boot time.

    It all depends on what you have installed. I have Windows 10 installed on an old Hitachi external hard drive and it boots faster than Win 7.

    I have mine on an SSD and it's just about instantaneous.. around 10 seconds. At this point given how relatively cheap an SSD is you might want to look into getting one.. I have a 126gb. And the 256gb are inexpensive..Kingston has a 256gb for about 85$ US.
    Only 10 seconds? Mine takes anywhere from 20 seconds at the shortest (once), as long as 45 seconds on a Samsung 830 128 GB SSD. Is it normal to vary so much? Fast boot enabled doesn't seem to make much if any difference.

    Note: I use 360 Total Security to measure my boot time, it measures the time from bios to when 360 TS loads, which is the last thing to load during boot.

    I'm been running all builds of Windows 10 on a 1TB Western Digital Green Caviar drive which is not particularly fast, but after last nights upgrade from 10158 to 10166, it appears a lot slower.

    7 Secs from the BIOS screen to Windows 10 logo
    15 Secs from Windows 10 logo to black screen
    63 Secs from black screen to Log-In screen
    77 Secs from Log-In to Windows 10 Start Screen

    making this 140 Secs before Log-In is complete.

    Anyone else found start up time getting longer or is just me!
    One thing you might want to do is go into your BIOS and change some of the startup settings. There are settings there that take longer because they check to be sure things are working properly. These settings can be changed for a quicker startup, but if you need to have BIOS check something, you can change the settings back.

    Also, I have found that when the black screen shows up, if I hit the Enter key, things get going. Guess I should give feedback on this, as it's been happening for awhile now.

    Few things to shave couple of seconds of BIOS time (for legacy BIOS). All the automatic settings on manual with same values as it was on auto. Turn off SMART check and eventually all the devices not used. UEFI is different animal because during the POST it has to load stuff from disk and that goes much faster on SSD or fast HDD.

    Performed a clean-up on the registry & defrag on HD (not SSD).
    Re-booted the PC with a start up time of 100 Secs (no change from previous so this made no difference).

    Shut down Windows rather than perform a re-boot.
    Switched PC back on & start-up time significantly reduced to 40 Secs & noticed that screen went black for considerably less time.

    So it appears that during a re-boot something causes the start up time to increase due to some activity during the period the screen goes black between end of the Windows logo & Log-In sequence.

    Haven't tried pressing ESC or Enter during the black screen period to see if it can be by-passed.

    So now I have to close down and reboot just to see how long it takes mine to boot. This system is pretty average.

    Wow! 26 seconds! That's from pressing the power button until I see my desktop.

    Then it takes Outlook way too long to start up.
