    Slow booting. How do I see drivers loading at boot?


    I have a laptop that is about 3 years old. It started to boot very slow (running Windows 7) a few months ago.

    I updated to Windows 10 (fresh install) hoping it would be fixed.

    The boot just drags and drags. It might be a hard drive issue (even though there are no errors) but I want to know what is happening at boot.

    How do I see something besides the logo or a black screen?

    :)

    Windows 10 doesnt boot (spinning wheel freezes after few seconds) anymore after installing latest fall update

    Hi,

    I might try this but before I do this I would appreciate if you can answer this question:

    You mentioned it could be faulty graphic driver. How fast is the driver loaded on boot? One more time, the windows freezes after just 3 to 4 seconds of boot time - I doubt the GUI and drivers have even started loading. It's not that windows loads and then
    it freezes. It freezes in much earlier stage, right after boot.

    So what exactly is loading in the first few seconds after boot? Is GUI graphic driver loading in these initial stages?

    When you say create a restore point WHEN do you mean? Before upgrading this latest update or right after it updates? I tried to create restore RIGHT after I updated windows and it didn't help - windows froze at the boot again even after restoring it.

    This is a big update, I am not sure if I can just do a restore point to pre-update. I think larger rollback is needed.

    Is there any way to turn on logging or displaying what file is loaded on boot? XP had a nice feature you could see exactly what file was loading when run in safe mode so maybe I can see what file makes system freeze.

    Example http://www.techwarelabs.com/guides/misc_mod/cleanupguide/images/safemode2.jpg

    How do I display or log what files are loading during boot in windows 10? There must be some logging utility to help with that.

    Win10 will ALWAYS freeze at the loading screen on cold boot, resetting after the freeze fixes it and it runs fine. How do I access what it is trying to load in the background?

    The subject says it all. It will 100% of the time freeze with the spinning beads loading screen on cold boot. I have to hit the reset button on my tower and then it loads into windows just fine. Choosing "restart" from inside windows itself also boots without
    issue.

    What I need is a diagnostic boot screen like used to be in WinXP. Where I can see the list of drivers\services being loading one by one and wait to see which one it "freezes" at on cold boot. I can't seem to "see behind" the Win10 load GUI load screen (unchecking
    GUI boot didn't help in MsConfig).

    Any ideas on what the problem may be and if not HOW do I see what it's freezing at? Thanks!!
