  1. Odd occasional boot issue

    Windows 10 Pro Version: 1909 Build: 18363.476

    RAM: 16GB Processor: Intel i7-4790K @4.00GHz Boot disk: Samsung EVO 500GB SSD

    Every so often when my PC boots, it runs like a complete dog. I mean it lags like made on simply moving the mouse. Opening a browser can take an age. A reboot fixes it every time.

    So here’s the oddity - when this occurs and I click Start / Power I only get two options: Shut down and Restart. Normally I get those two plus Sleep.

    I can’t begin to think what might be going on when this occurs. It has happened since I built the machine - it’s a bitsa - and it’s been W10 since I built it a year or more ago.

    Any ideas what might be causing this very odd behaviour?

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.

    Win 10 1809 to 1903 Failure And Odd Issue Found

    No listing under MSConfig Boot tab / not sure what to do

    Similar there.
    You are missing an EFI partition too. Here's mine (1903) - note the 99Mb EFI partition:

    - noting the Recovery partition is NTFS - not sure where the idea in that thread about FAT32 comes from.

    Here are all the partitions - Disk Management omits the 16Mb one:

    In the thread I quoted- not the most straightforward- it seems one basic step taken was to
    a. Image 'C: '
    b. Clean install Windows
    c. Replace the new Windows partition by restoring it from the image created
    d. (Note when rebooting, this may sort itself out via automated repair, or need Startup repair to be run)

    If you search for
    msconfig boot empty
    msconfig boot empty "Windows 10"
    you will find numerous references which may help.
