My W10 Home install (or my SSD) succumbed to "Bit Rot" after ~20 boots ("inaccessible boot device" error).

The Recovery Environment still loaded and Linux Mint 18 (dual boot) was unaffected.

I couldn't fix the "inaccessible boot device" error, so I ended up using the "Reset" option.
At least the "Reset" option worked without any issues.

Can't say I've ever wanted to sit there and time how long it takes to boot up. As long as it doesn't take 5 minutes, it doesn't bother me in the slightest.
I don't really take any notice of benchmarks either. As long as my pc runs okay then I'm happy.

I'm not understanding why boot time a few seconds one way or the other would be a measuring method to determine what operating system one chooses. With the difference between Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 with a little effort one can find something else to judge what operating system one desires.

As fast as computers boot today I'm also not understand why their is a option to Sleep or Hibernate.

Hi,
Yea everything has gone to power saving = battery measuring from mobile first world blah....
Otherwise I've pretty much gone quick or fast boot off just for good measure
It really makes no difference to me
I hit the power button and fix a cup of coffee and it's ready when I come back
If there is no bsod or no disk found message it might be a good day

What's the point of worrying about boot times, I never turn my systems off unless I have to

Hi,
I always shut down there's no point in leaving a computer on all the time or all night for that matter
We loose power way too much in the u.s. or at least I do

Beside waiting 30-60 seconds is hardly an inconvenience where expensive hardware is at risk
And yes I also turn off the psu switch too and also have a APC battery backup

I have activity on my computer 24/7, such as scans, TV recording, etc. so it has to stay on.

I also shut everything down when I have finished with the computer. Power interruptions here are a problem as well.
I have a UPS as well & a surge protector.
A boot up time of 20-30 seconds in my case is not a very long wait.

Won't have to listen to me moaning, I don't want 10. If I ever change my mind, I'll buy it and clean install it, if I don't buy Apple. Till then it's W7.
Same here. If Windows 10 ever evolves into an environment and shell that I like, I'll buy it. Right now, I really like Windows 8 (that's the original version using Server 2012 updates). My biggest beef is that if I were to go buy a new notebook PC right now, I'd have to accept Windows 10. Hopefully there'd be a box that would accept a downgrade to Windows 8.

But why exactly is that? I have my system running flawlessly just like Byrds7t7 does with Classic Shell, and all of the Metro crap removed. It runs JUST AS GOOD as Windows 8.1. Pretty much none of the 8.1 fixes applies to the regular Explorer-style desktop. And I have NO telemetry or GWX updates. So why does it bring on the hatred still?
