Brief pause before login screen is killing my 10 sec boot times!

#1PsythikPosted 1/31/2014 10:36:51 AM
This only started happening recently and it's driving me nuts. Set my BIOS to Fast Boot so POST and the Starting Windows screen only takes about 7-8s. But then right before the login screen there's a 20s pause with nothing but a black screen and the mouse cursor.

What's going on here? How do I fix it? Startup programs & Services are kept to a bare minimum, and I don't see anything unusual in the Task Schedule that could cause the delay, so what gives?

There is one more setting that might have been disabled.

If you go into power settings and click "choose what the power button does"

there should be a few options under there for fast startup and such.

I think the single reason people buy SSDs, is so they can get sexually excited at the boot times. So yeah, this is probably a big problem.

Now turn that music down, I'm trying to sleep gashnarnit!

That's not the point. The whole reason why I bought an SSD is to enjoy 10 second boot times. The fact that I'm not getting what I paid for means I wasted $70 unless the problem is fixed.

I don't see any such settings. This is all I get:

Did you clone your original drive? A fresh install should help, cloning an HDD to an SSD isn't the most efficient process.

shave more time off by disabling the window's splash screen:

(Win 7, not sure if it works on Win 8)

1 Click on the Start Menu.
2 Click on Control Panel.
3 Click on System and Security.
4 Click on Administrative Tools.
5 Double click on System Configuration.
6 Click on the Boot tab.
7 Check "No GUI Boot"
