    terrible slow boot

    I gave Windows 10 another chance after March update and tried a VM so I upgraded main Windows 8.1 to 10 build 10041

    Bios-> windows logo for some seconds->black screen for 10 minutes->desktop

    While on the black screen, the HD light is constantly on. After desktop everything is fine. On windows 8.1 it took less than a minute to boot.

    I will defrag and see, meanwhile any suggestion is welcome. Thank you

    Windows 10 Creators Update... slow internet.

    I have the same issues and trying to find a solution.

    Creators Update has made my PC terribly slow.

    1. Slow to boot

    2. It freezes randomly.

    3. Programs slow to load.

    4. I started getting BSOD's

    Computer worked flawlessly prior to this update.

    I even formatted the computer and completed clean install. Still slow. Still freezes. However, I don't get BSOD's anymore.

    PC is so slow with Creator update it is unusable.

    terrible slow boot

    defrag an disk cleanup did nothing.
    Happens when rebooting and not booting from shutdown

    Will try build 10049 as I noticed I had a old one

    Build 10049 is the last official build that MS dropped. Using the newer ones is a bit more risky since they're leaks and not as fully tested out as the official ones. Try to perform a clean install and see what happens.

    Thank you. I am in the fast ring. I will mostly do it as the installation of 10049 failed (Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0xC1900106: fbl_impressive 10049 Professional.). I will try a second time and if fails then make an ISO and try a clean install *Wink

    update: noticed I had only 10GB free. Maybe it was the problem. I removed a bit and now I have 30, hope now works and see if it fixes the slow boot if not then clean install

    terrible slow boot

    Installed 10049, still 10 minutes boot time with HD light on.

    Does W10 require now a SSD or ultra fast HD or what

    The latest BIOS for your mobo dates from 2012. Although Gigabyte supports Win8.1 on it, I have to wonder if there's an issue that makes it incompatible w/Win10.

    10 gB free definitely isn't enough. This page says you must have a minimum of 16 gB free: System requirements - Microsoft Windows

    Also, if you only have 16 gB free, the system will not respond well and will get even slower as you add things to it.

    Good for you... I can only use the ancient slow laptop HD mentioned in my sig. But windows 8.1 and previous did boot way faster.

    Thank you. Now I have 40 GB after disk cleanup removed 20 GB (LOL) and uninstalled some apps. I hope this is enough for win 10tp.
    I have the latest BIOS, hope my mb is compatible with 10 even unofficially!

    Reverted back to Windows 7. I will try W10 again when it's released.

    terrible slow boot

    Next time you should check in Event 100 of Eventvwr > Details tab what process holds things up. Event 100 you find when you drill down this chain:

    Applications and Service Logs
    Diagnostics - performance
    Event ID 100

    Something weird is happening with your PC and W10. *Confused

    Now that you have reinstalled W7, download VMware Player, install W10TP in that and check the boot time.

    I'm running my W10TP VM on Linux Mint 17.1 Host.
    The boot time was ~20 seconds when it was "empty", but now that I have installed a handful of programs it's ~55 seconds.

    Yeah right. I run W10TP also in VMware Player on a W7 host and my boot time is 23 seconds.
