Windows 7: Very slow Startup- 5:30+ minutes

Okay Luiz, thanks for the reply. Well I do not have a Win 7 disk to do a "fresh" install. Built myself, got copy from my son-in-law who got it from his boss. So the OP sys would have to come from the HDD. That might kill option 1.

This is what I have- an EXTERNAL HDD with all photos, docs, data? Etc, etc. Also have a Flash Drive with same stuff. So I guess option 2 is the only option? Sounds like a lot of work...

Thought we could just "clone" the OP sys. Not possible- huh?

From post #8 your disk has:
976657407 KB total disk space.
336765560 KB in 234591 files.

The OS and programs files is around 40 to 55G. This gives a minimum of 280G in data files.
How big is your external HDD?

HDD IS 500G. I have 230G free. The link you gave me to Win 7 Pro 64 says: 403 - Forbidden. Sorry I don't have a Win 7 installation disk in my possession.

Back again.
Please open Disk management (C:\Windows\System32\diskmgmt.msc), expand the window and the columns so we can read them and with a the snipping toll (%windir%\system32\SnippingTool.exe) take a snapshot of the hole window and paste it here as an attachment. Use the paper clip on the answer window - browse to the file - upload.

Do you have active bitlocker (drive encryption)?
