    Slow boot


    My Windows 10 (20H2) boot time has become super slow. It is taking over a minute to get pass the Windows splash. I think it started happening a while back after a a big Windows update. My hardware is pretty old but it used to only take seconds. My Windows installation is on a SSD drive and everything works fine aside from the slow boot up. I've already tried the solutions you can Google. I also recorded a performance log of the boot but nothing leaps out of me.

    :)

    Slow boot

    Hi Craig,

    Boot performance may slow can be due to corruptions. To assist you better, kindly answer the following questions:

    • Have you made any recent changes before this issue occur?
    • Have you tried booting up your laptop in Safe Mode and check if the issue still persist?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    We're looking forward to your response.

    Slow boot

    laptop doesnt boot automatically

    This is what happened.

    1. Did a repair install and later disabled hibertnate in CMD.
    2. Enabled legacy option ROM in BIOS.
    3. After a few times startup ( i used the system in such mode for 5 days), changed boot option back to default.
    4. Vola!! It boots automatically to win10 without any keypress. Tested it with many starts to confirm the same.
    5. Re-enabled hibernate option using CMD and later selected Fast Startup.
    6. System booted normally, without the need for any keypress.

    I do not know exactly whether such steps resolved the problem or what else happened, hence cannot suggest above steps.

    Many thanks to all members who helped to troubleshoot problems.
