Hi Tram 1,

That looks better. Is it booting up any better?

As regards your question about system32, don't worry about it, as that is the correct name. Many programs use files that are found in this folder, and if it was renamed then a lot of them will not work without extensive re-writing of the code.

To answer your other question, it is NOT showing 2 boot loaders. You have a Boot Manager and this is followed by 1-4 Boot Loader(s).

Hi Dwarf,

Thank you very much for the advise, it has helped so much and another learning curve for me, I had a feeling it was something else and not a clue where to start.

I had never seen or heard of bcdedit until your reply to me today.


I had last night been playing with the bios and I posted a thread today about my bios settings and I got some advise as I did from Enzo and Skunkmash here, I knocked a few seconds off boot, got it down to 87 seconds, steady.

But by far the advice and help you gave me has knocked spots off the boot time, much, much, much better and now between 45 and 51 seconds.

It still hangs, I think or maybe I expect to much but stone me, what a massive improvement, thank you.

I played yesterday with BVs RC1 suggestions, in fact I did the whole damn lot and manged to slow the system even further, I went for broke and didn't get any where but lessons learned but as I wrote I can see there are services I can disable or set to manual, so I'm going to have other goes with BV.

25 seconds is my target, start to desk top if that's at all possible.

Much appreciated Dwarf, thanks.
