system takes too long to start.- Windows 7 ultimate- RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Night Everyone!

    This is the message I have on Event Viewer. I had SQL 2008 and I thought the issue had been caused by it. I unistalled SQL and it did get a little better but still takes too long to start after the blue screen appears. I hangs on too long after I login with my passoword. Can anyone help? I have no clue what to do.

    thanks!

  • Hi,

    make sure you have the service Superfetch running and next try to speed up the boot with the help of my guide [1]. This trains the advanced prefetcher in Windows 7. This increase the boot performance a lot. All other tweaking tools are useless. Only use this method with this Microsoft Toolkit.

    If this doesn't speed up the boot process, follow my guide [2] to make a boot trace and compress the boot_BASE+CSWITCH+DRIVERS+POWER_1.etl as 7z or RAR and upload it to your Skydrive [3] and post the link here.

    I take a look at the trace, maybe I see what's wrong with your Windows.

  • Hi,

     

    I want to confirm the following questions:

     

    -Did this issue occur before you install SQL2008?

    -startup hangs when you log on every time, or just after blue screen?

    -could you provide the dump files. You can refer to: How to read the small memory dump files that Windows creates for debugging

     

     

    Regards,
