    Slow boot/shutdown sometimes & Sys Config shows a choice of OS?


    The PC of my Wife is suffering occasional slow shutdowns. Interestingly too, sometimes the Wi-Fi icon doesn't come on boot ups and it is very slow connecting to the internet.

    Occasionally and recently on start-up we get the option of which OS we want to use on a blue screen

    Windows 10 Pro on Volume 3 or
    Windows 10 Pro on Volume 1

    As far as we understand we have one, W10 Pro (upgraded from W7 Ultimate) on the C drive (an SSD)
    MSCONFIG screen shot shows 2 operating systems but there is no Windows on our D drive.

  2. Windows 10 boot up slowly after the free upgrade from Windows 8.1

    Hi Anders,



    Thank you for keeping us posted on this query.



    Is the Shutdown process slow every day?

    Did you try the methods suggested by Syed Abdul Jabbar?



    Sometimes Windows will be updating some of the important updates, or will be saving some of the changes made to the system. Hence the shutdown process will be slow.



    We will take your feedback into consideration, and will work on it.



    Feel free to use Feedback App installed in Windows 10 to give your valuable feedback, so that the action will be taken immediately.



    Get back to us if you have queries regarding Windows, we will be happy to help you.



    Thank you,

    Microsoft Community.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I must mention, the system specs here on my profile are not those of the problem PC. I can post them if required.

    This computer started normally this morning. The only change I made yesterday after reading topics in here was to turn off Windows Defender (we have NAV installed) and I did remove Malwarebytes Anti-Malware some 2 weeks agon when these problems seemed to start...

    Here's the screenshot as requested.

    I thought to throw in file explorer screen shots to show there is no Windows on the D drive.

    In MSCONFIG you can delete the Windows D: drive reference.

    Any peripheral connected at shutdown?
     
  10. Whiskey 7 Win User
    No, just the standard stuff like wireless KB/mouse, USB wireless network adapter & monitor, and USB speakers. Nothing out of the ordinary.

    I am just rebooting and restarting that PC to check for a fix while typing here on mine. I should be able to report back soon *Smile

    OK, reporting now all is well as my Wife's' PC boots and closes down as it should (and used to) after 12 or so shutdowns & restarts/reboots in testing.

    Thanks toaxe0 and NavyLCDR for the assist, it is appreciated

    Goodness only knows where that error the appearance of 2 operating systems came from. I guess the PC was in two minds and confused a little *Confused

    Cheers & marking as solved.
