    Please post your boot time here (including BIOS bootup time).

    My boot time is 56 seconds (38 seconds in BIOS bootup and 18 seconds on Windows bootup).

    Check hard drive for bad sectors and check SATA connectors if these problems are slowing down your computer's boot up. Also check the drive's temperature, as well as other hardware's temperatures.

    Everything is just fine. My computer has been like this since the day I built it 4 years ago its just old and slow. It's been taken apart multiple times to be cleaned it's always the same results.

    Try Soluto, it lets you delay certain programs until the PC is idle and then start them. Boot time before Soluto was 46 seconds, after 1st boot and learning boot mode it was 36 seconds and then after delaying some programs 31 seconds. I found this nifty program in a general software thread here on TPU http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=131442&highlight=soluto

    the thread is old, but the program is out of beta and i've used it off and on since finding the thread.

    Tips for optimal bootup time

    1. Turn on "No-GUI boot" in msconfig.
    2. Use AHCI mode if you have SATA disk drives. (It can crash your OS, do this before install OS.) *
    3. Reduce startup programs.
    4. Do a disk cleanup. A third-party PC cleanup software is recommended, such as Auslogics BoostSpeed.
    5. Do a disk defragmentation. A Microsoft Disk Defragmenter is fine, but a third-party disk defragmenter is recommended, such as Auslogics Disk Defrag.

    * To enable AHCI mode without reinstalling OS, do this steps:
    1. Look for msachi.sys and iaStorV.sys file in \Windows\System32\drivers\ folder.
    2. Go to regedit. Look for these registry subkeys:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\msahci
    and
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\iaStorV
    3. In right pane, look for "Start" DWORD value, and set it to 0.
    4. Reboot your computer.
    5. Press DEL to go to BIOS setup. **
    6. Select "Integrated Peripherals".
    7. Look for "SATA AHCI Mode" and "Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode", and select them to AHCI. ***
    8. Save and exit BIOS setup then reboot your computer.
    9. You will no longer saw BSOD with Inaccessible_boot_device error. It will boot straight to desktop.
    10. The AHCI drivers will be ready to installed, once finished, another reboot is required to take effect.
    11. You will see the BIOS boot is slow down quite a bit, but don't worry, that's it because you have turned on AHCI mode in BIOS setup.
    12. Now enjoy your faster bootup time. GL! :)

    ** It may depend on your BIOS brand and version.
    *** These options may not be available due to using PATA hard drive cable for system drives.
