Slow boot with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit on Intel 320 80 GB SSD RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've seen a few threads where people were able to post their boot summary and get some advice on what could be causing the slow boot times. I just did a fresh install and mine takes a consistent 1:40 from hitting the power button to completion. Once in, everything is very snappy. Here's a link to my summary:


    From what I've gathered, it looks like my SMSSInit section is slowing me down:

     - <interval name="SMSSInit" startTime="2717" endTime="28692" duration="25974">

    So it's taking 26 seconds on that alone. The big culprit seems to be:

     - <perProcessCPUUsage name="Idle" time="24165" percentOfInterval="93.03"> <cpuUsage priority="0" time="24165" cumTime="24165" ofProcess="100.00" ofInterval="93.03" cumOfProcess="100.00" /> </perProcessCPUUsage>

    I may be reading this wrong, so forgive me. In the link I followed to make the trace, it sounded like that if that section was slow, it was usually due to the graphics drivers loading. I let it update to the most recent and it didn't change the boot time.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

  • Hi,

    Based on my experience, it's an normal time to boot the computer. And I checked the traces, it seems without issue.

    I suggest you Clean Boot the computer check if it will speed up.

  • Thanks for the reply!  That's normal, even for an SSD?  I actually did try a Clean Boot and it was the same.


    Any other suggestions?
