    Slow boot time (~90 seconds) - Plug and Play delay


    I have recently installed Windows 7 over Windows 10 (I didn't really like it) and I have a boot-time problem now. Windows always gets stuck on "Starting Windows" screen and it takes up to 90 seconds to load the login screen. I looked it up in the event viewer and found out that there is a delay of 75 seconds between two events on the list.

    (1) Information 24.7.2016 23:45:15 Service Control Manager 7036 None
    (2) Information 24.7.2016 23:44:00 Kernel-Processor-Power 26 (4)

    The first one (1) says:
    The Plug and Play service entered the running state.

    And the second (2) one:
    Processor 3 in group 0 exposes the following:
    2 idle state(s)
    5 performance state(s)
    0 throttle state(s)


    (detailed info at the end)


    All the drivers are from the original CD/Website and are up-to-date. I had no such problems when I was running Windows 10 or any other operating system.
    The laptop is Lenovo Z50-75 --- AMD A10 7300, 8GB RAM, 5400rpm 500GB+8GB SSHD and Dual-Graphics AMD Radeon R6 and M255.

    What can be the problem?

    My computer give me >120 second in order for me to start using.

    Startup usually may check and confirm many type of setting, etc.

    For example, if you desktop is empty, it will take 10 second and you can start using.

    All items on the desktop are to be verified as true, otherwise it may try to find the link.

    When you insert any USB device into the USB port, the system usually take every 5 second to check if there is any change.
    Hence, within 5 second, the USB device will be detected.
    Then it have to check if that device did connected to USB port-2 before, it can be used immediately.
    If it check as the device is never connected to the USB port-2, it then have to find the USB driver to install and saved, remembered.

    Then again, for 90 seconds, it may not matter much, as just turn on the computer before, say, to take a bath first.

    How is you setting as shown here:

    Slow boot time (~90 seconds) - Plug and Play delay-system-configuration.jpg

    Start> Run

    type

    msconfig

    Also read this to get a better idea of how to actually use event viewer:

    Use Windows 7 Event Viewer to track down issues that cause slower boot times - TechRepublic

    Add both custom views that are mentioned.

    See section "Creating a Custom View" and don't skip the last part under Figure C.

    You'll now repeat these steps and create another Custom View, and this time, you'll type 101-110 in the Includes/Excludes Event IDs box and name it Boot Degradation.
    Then check all Event ID's mentioned for clues. You are not looking for "time between events" - you are looking for problem software, services or drivers that take a long time to load.

    I checked Boot Time events and I noticed that every one of them is an error. I noticed that every boot took more than 100 seconds. The more important thing I noticed is that every one of them has IsDegradation set to false while on the website you sent me it is set to true. Could that be the problem? I read that hardware can cause this problem. I'll mention that I have updated all of my drivers to their latest versions.

    The point is that Windows logo screen takes 90-130 seconds, and then when login screen shows up, it takes 5-15 seconds for me to start using my computer so the login time isn't the problem, just the boot time.

    IsDegradation=False means no problem. IsDegradation=True means possible problem.

    If you updated drivers check all Event ID 102 instances and try to find out if a driver took a long time to load.

    Sorry I do not have an example screenshot as everything is working okay on my machine and I only have Event ID 100 errors. Nothing to worry about as it relates to a disabled scheduled task.

    Why update drivers unless there was a problem? I've made that mistake in the past. If a driver works - leave it alone unless the new one contains some "must have" new feature or fix for a known issue. I ope you backed up the previous drivers or made a system image backup first.

    EDIT: Just for info here's a tutorial on this site:
