?! I said I'd 'gladly' post screen shots but just asked for more details as to what you would need.. Why would you reply like that?? I can't see any way that my reply was open to misinterpretation and such an odd answer.

Forget it then, if you prefer. Thanks anyway.

couple ideas here, was just checking online regarding machines that boot normally on a reboot but have issues on a cold boot, came up with these:

- change your motherboard battery. If its weak or dead it won't matter on a reboot because it does not come into play but on a cold boot it does.
- reflash your bios in case it is corrupted, same principle as previous point
- one guy fixed his issue by reflashing his video card bios
- two guys had this issue and later determined their hard drive was going bad. I would not expect this to be your issue since you are on SSDs and they were on spinning drives.

anyway, you are on the right track by doing boot logging in various environments

I don't think the CMOS battery is a problem, as I get an F1 prompt at bootup if that is the case. I'll leave flashing BIOS etc. for now, as things can go wrong and I am not at the stage yet where I want to risk it

The freeze/hang does in fact occur on reboot sometimes. I eliminated the All_CPU gadget from startup, but that didn't help.

I notice some odd things - for instance, batch files (.bat) that I run at statup (via startup folder) all seem to run immediately, but the one vbs script there doesn't run until the freeze-up clears itself.

It's really hard to know what to make of this! maybe there are some Windows updates I need to install - though that sometimes introduces fresh problems! (I wouldn't be surprised if it's a Windows upadte that has caused this issue all of a sudden. I never had this two or three weeks ago).
