Windows 7: A long delay at "Please Wait" or "Welcome"

This is yours: MainPathBootTime>91799
This is mine: MainPathBootTime 9904

This is yours:
"BootPrefetchInitTime">34898</Data> = 34 seconds
"BootPrefetchBytes">248291328</Data> = 2.48GB

This is mine:
BootPrefetchInitTime 0
BootPrefetchBytes 0

What is the difference ? I have a SSD and you have a slow disk.

You can make an experiment and set the prefetch time to 0 (zero). But I am not sure whether that helps. Here is how:

Open regedit and browse to this entry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory
Management\PrefetchParameters


and to the right side double click,

Enable Prefetcher

set the value to 0

I've already tried this option , but I didn't noticed any difference.
And I don't understand what problem may have my Hard Drive ?
I checked will all tools needed , and no problem at all.

You don't have a 'problem' with your disk. It is just slow.. Move the OS to a SSD and it will boot in less than 20 seconds.

Had the same issue. Went to Services.msc, and changed setting of Network Store Interface Service - switched to delayed start. Problem gone. Clearly there's something in the startup and network process hanging, but this side stepped it.
