Hi mate.

Can you determine the speeds of the drive with some third party app? The boot time varies depending on the number of apps that start with the booting, but IMO this is a good speed.

Also, do you suspect that there's might be something wrong with the HDD? If you do, then run a test with Data Lifeguard Diagnostics so you can test it and we can see for sure if indeed there's something wrong. Here's a link to download it from:

Let me know how it went. smile.gif

Hello ,thx a lot for your input. I got a bit desperate with the days passing biggrin.gifrolleyes.gif
I went to win8.1 since i had some problems with CS on win10. Boot time now is 35-40secs. I have noticed something might be up with my other drives. I have a Sata 1 Laptop HDD 5400rpm as well as a SATA 2 7200rpm hdd. Once I unpluged the Laptop HDD,boot times went down with 10secs which gave me a 25-30sec boot time.

Is this the speeds of your Blue drive or the laptop drive you mentioned? If they are of WD Blue, then it's doing a good job (for instance, the one I have is reaching speeds between 140MB/s and 150MB/s).

As for the slowing down with the second drive connected, you can check in BIOS boot order if the second one is not listed as first option.

Yes,these are the speeds of the Blue drive. My problem is in situations like this:

Boot is awfully slow on windows 10 . it finishes the windows logo thing at 15 secs ,then around 30secs of black screen. No idea how to fix it. Logging in takes plenty of time as well.

Does the slowing down started after the upgrade, or it was there before that as well? If it started after that you can try two things to fix it.

The first one is to run a full system scan with your anti-virus software to remove any possible infections from the PC. Then press and hold Ctrl, Shift and Esc to invoke the Task Manager. Then select the Startup tab and then sort out the items according to their Startup impact rating. For instance, you can disable all those in High category, except for the crucial security software installed on the computer.

The second option is to enable FastStartup and then optimize startup in Windows 10 by enabling the fast boot-up and shutdown times through its special Hybrid Startup and Shutdown option, which puts the system into hibernation state. This option can be activated via Control Panel > Power Options.

To do that click on "Choose what the power button does" from the left pane, and then select "Change settings that are currently unavailable." New options under Shutdown settings will appear. Just tick the "Turn on fast startup" checkbox and click "Save changes." Then reboot the computer and hold "Windows Key + R" as soon as the desktop appears. Enter "services.msc" in the Run dialog box and hit Enter key. Take note of the list of services which appear to prolong their launch. Right-click those meeting the criteria, open them, and change their setting from default to delayed start and click save. Then reboot and see if the OS will start faster.

Let me know how it went. smile.gif

My OS boot and usage has always been painfully slow. I had a SATA 2,hdd before the wd blue and the speeda i was getting were to be expected , the sequential speed or whatever was 55-60MB/s. There isn't the improvement i had hoped there will be with this new hdd. Boot times are nearly identical and i still sometimes hit 100% whe not exactly doing much.
I've been thinkin about switching the HDD 1:1 for an SSD, a Samsung 650 EVO. It'll fit my needs , i need a fast hdd for AAE and Cinema4D and CS. 128gb will suit me , I think.

P.S. FastStartup doesn't appeal to me. I want my PC to be entirely shut down,no need to be only hibernated during the nights. I shut down my PC every night,as well as if i'm outside for more than 30mins,so a complete shut down is preferable.
I have Razer Synapse,Catalyst and Skype,Steam, utorrent ,onedrive and some other stuff. Disabling all but Razer,Catalyst and Skype gave me the following results:
From button press to windows logo dissapearing: 13secs
Black screen: 7secs
Please Wait screen: 7secs
Logging in: 16 secs
It's all pretty fast, excluding the login. Any idea how I can speed it up, Im not even connected to my microsoft account,it's a local one without a password.

40 seconds for a system start from cold boot sounds OK to me.

If you switch to SSD and install the OS there you will have faster boot speeds, but aren't the specs of the "Ultimate Rig" in your signature the current build you have, or I'm mistaken here? If not, what components are you using?

Well, I would say that the booting time you currently have is a pretty good one for this configuration.

You can try to install the latest updates, if such are available, or to reinstall the OS and see if it will run faster.
