Windows 7: For fellow newbies with slow boot - this might help

For fellow newbies with slow boot - this might help

Hey all!

I was going to post another thread going "OMG BOOT TIEM SLOW HOW FIX?", but I lurked around and tried fixing it myself.

I recently upgraded hardware, and wondered... "Why is my boot time so slow when it wasn't on my old specs?"

I ventured into the dark raptured cave of the BIOS.. And considering I have almost NO experience in it, it was scary.

Boot time at first:



What I did was go into the Advanced BIOS Features



And saw this



And changed it to this



And BAM!



It was a huge accomplishment for me, considering i'm almost a computer illiterate.

I also wanna thank all of you here on this forum, who help/try their best to help others, have some cake

You can change the initial display first slot to PCI-e for your card.
