Inconsistent boot times for Windows 7 Pro, X25-M RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I've seen a couple posts which I think relate to my issues...
    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/w7itproperf/thread/2bf701f7-4ed5-49a7-8ddb-71c4891f3ca6

    My problem is a little different:

    My boot time varies; sometimes the black screen w/ W7 logo appears for only 5 seconds
    other times, it can stay for as long as 60-90 seconds before the desktop appears...

    the frequency of the slow startup is about 1 out of every 3-4 bootups...

     

    I have attached my boot trace file here:
    http://cid-816a6216ea008444.office.live.com/self.aspx/Public/boot^_BASE^MCSWITCH^MDRIVERS^MPOWER^_1.rar

    I would really appreciate if someone could help me figure this out.
    The computer is almost brand new, Intel Quad-core, 6gb ram, X25-M 80gb, Asus MB.
    W7Pro was installed on a fresh X25-M.

    Thanks very much

  • If you don't use the Volume-Shadow Copy or System Restore feature, you can disable the 2 features and the driver is no longer loaded.

  • Hi,

    starting the Microsoft-Windows-VolumeSnapshot-Driver takes 60s, that why your Windows boot takes 76 seconds.

  • Thanks Andre, I hoped for your reply.

    I am currently doing some research on usefulness of this driver now, but is it advisable to disable it completely?

    Hi,

     

    Andre’s suggestion is worth to perform. Meanwhile, you can also perform a Clean Boot to check the result. If the issue persists, please move on the following steps to perform a deep clean boot.

     

    Temporary disable the services by perform a Selective startup

    ====================

    1. Click "Start" and type "msconfig" in the Search box to start the System Configuration Utility.

    2. Click the "General" tab, check the "Selective Startup".

    3. Clear the check box in front of "Load System Service" option.

    4. Clear the check box in front of "Load Startup Items" option and press OK to exit.

     

    Then, please restart the system and continue to the next steps.

     

    Step 2: Enable "Load System Services" option

    ====================

    1. Click "Start", type "msconfig" (without the quotation marks) into the Search box, and click "OK".

    2. In "General" tab -> "Selective Startup" radio box, check on "Load System Services" option.

    3. Click "Apply", click "OK" and click "Yes" to restart the computer.

    4. If the original issue does not reoccur, please continue to the next steps.

     

    If this issue reoccurs, we need to manually enable the system service one by one to detect the suspect items in "Service" tab of System Configuration Utility.

     

    Step 3: Enable "Load Startup Items" option

    ====================

    1. Click "Start", type "msconfig" (without the quotation marks) into the Search box, and click "OK".

    2. In "General" tab -> "Selective Startup" radio box, check on "Load Startup Items" option.

    3. Click "Apply", click "OK" and click "Yes" to restart the computer.

    4. If this issue reoccurs, we need to manually enable the system startup item one by one to detect the suspect items in "Startup" tab of System Configuration Utility.

     

    Thanks,

    Novak
