Select the boot order from the EZ screen on the UEFI. The 950 Pro will normally be named (Windows boot manager).

Hello Dee27 I disabled CSM and boot time dropped 15.seconds smile.gif thanks for the help thumb.gif. I tested each boot and here is a small table below . If anyone else know any other tricks to drop boot time please post

Wow....is that 39.3 seconds? What's the rest of your HW? Are you sure you have installed OS in UEFI mode? On a fresh WIN10 install I was booting up in 12 sec. Now with everything else installed I boot around 15 sec. M8H board on 1302 BIOS.

Im pretty sure I installed in UEFI mode correctly is there a way to check ? I did a fresh install with windows 10 threshold 2 On a usb stick and picked uefi boot and then setup disk for gpt which went fine. but if your booting 15 seconds then something is definately wrong ? Heres My Hw setup

^ The RAID arrays will take some time to initialise during boot. That is probably why you have 39 seconds to boot.

That's a very similar setup as mine, minus the raid, but I understand you don't have it in raid anymore. What OS are you running? Do you have Fast Boot enabled in the BIOS?
To check UEFI install, go to System Information. In there it should say UEFI BIOS.

I'm running windows 10 pro threshhold 2 fast boot enabled looks to me like UEFI is working check My picture please . I took out 16gb of memory to make sure it was the memory boot same latency improved but thats expected with 2 slots , same boot times ? Man im dying to know why now tongue.gif

Hmmm.......Looks like that's a proper UEFI install. If you want, you can upload your BIOS file somewhere and I'll compare it with mine when i have the time. Is the DDR4 memory 2 or 4 stick kit? I have a 2 stick set of 3200 Trident Z on mine but I doubt it would make that much of a difference regarding boot times.

Also I wonder if having CSM enabled during OS install might have had anything to do with this.questionmark.gif:confused:questionmark.gif

Can anyone tell me if any of the software that comes bundled with asus motherboards is actually useful?

The reason i ask is because i recently upgraded from a gigabyte z170 gaming 7(i've been building with gigabyte boards for 10 years now so i'm completely new to asus) to an asus maximus viii formula. While i'm definitely enjoying the much better bios and overclocking features on this board i'm not sure if i want their software installed on my computer. My reason being that the software gigabyte offered was absolutely awful and full of bugs. It was essentially bloatware. The only piece of asus software i'm using that isn't a driver of some sort is their aura led software and only because the leds cannot be set in the bios(hope this gets added in a future update).

So, do you all find any of their other software useful? Anything audio related is useless to me, i use a dedicated usb dac and amp for my headphones.

Also if anyone from asus is reading this you need to include the intel 100 series irst bootdisk drivers for installing windows in raid mode in the support section for this mobo on your website. Had to grab that from gigabytes website to do a fresh win 10 install using raid mode. Shouldn't need to do that.
