    Slow boot and other issues on modern hardware


    I am running Windows 7 on a Z390 motherboard, an i9 9900K CPU and an M.2 Samsung SSD and I'm experiencing very slow boot times.



    The system seems to perform very poorly before it has loaded into the OS itself, it sits on the Windows loading screen way longer than it should. Booting into safe mode also takes a really long time since the drivers load extremely slowly for some reason. Also, the Windows loading screen is displayed in the wrong language, it used to say "Windows is starting" in my language but now it's instead in English which is just weird since the OS is not installed in English in the first place.



    I have tried installing Windows on a regular SATA SSD instead but the same thing happens. Am I installing Windows the wrong way? Or could it be BIOS settings that cause this? Any ideas?

    Thanks. The BIOS is currently set to legacy+UEFI but I have tried setting it to UEFI as well and it didn't do anything. I'm not sure what you mean with sata 2 or 3, I couldn't find anything about it in BIOS. What makes the situation even more strange is that I currently dual boot Windows 7 and 10 and 10 manages to boot up just fine but 7 takes a ridicolous amount of time for some reason, and like I said I even tried installing it on 2 seperate drives. This whole thing doesn't make sense.

    Given the specs it's likely 7 won't have drivers anything with yellow triangle in device manager

    No yellow triangles, I managed to find workarounds for every single unknown driver. USB ports work perfectly and chipset, LAN drivers are all installed as well.

    Looks You're not in full UEFI but legacy mode.
    Are the all others tabs set to "legacy mode first" in Bios? Modern hardware have it on Sata 3 so nothing to worry about.

    PS: try also a Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times you might need the Windows 7 DVD to boot with (but Optional)

    and see if it helps for your Log On screen (Option One): User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.

    What do you mean by tabs? In the boot menu there is just an option to switch between UEFI and UEFI+Legacy, I tried both but neither worked.

    Try changing the bcd entry to your lingo.

    bcdedit /set {current} locale (your locale)

    eg. bcdedit /set {current} locale en-US

    or
    bcdedit /set {current} locale fr-FR

    or whatever yours is.

    You could also do

    bcdboot %WinDir% /l en-US

    or whatever yours is.

    In modern UEFI Bios there's not only One tab for Uefi, Uefi + Legacy, there's others tabs as how start peripherals at boot time. At the moment looks you have to stay Uefi + legacy.

    Please post a Disk Manger image as an attachment.
    Open Disk Manger, expand the window and the columns so we can read them. With the Snipping tool, take a snapshot of the whole image, save to your disk.
    Use the paper clip on the Quick Reply window. Browse to the image - upload

    Where did you get the Win 7 installation iso with all the needed drivers to install on a M.2 MVMe drive?
