Sorry, I really don't have the time to run all these long tests as I am using this computer for Work I continuously use it leaving it running scans on my drive will take too much time given the number of drives and their sizes I don't have the time to run them all as it will drop performance heavily. And as I already explained on my original post removing the drives and leaving the NVME drive on its own doesn't improve my boot times at all so I am pretty sure whatever is causing my long boot times has nothing to do with the HDD's as removing them should at least get my boot times to improve but still no changes even when they are all disconnected.

I have attached a report from HDTUNE if you really wanna see my Drive's Health Status.

Given that all my drives are all 4TB and up I doubt it would be done after I sleep and I work 12hours a day.
I can test it without the hard drives if you want me to but removing them does not really do anything to my boot-up times.

The logs displayed a very large number of disk entries: warnings

So it's best to investigate.


After the computer is in clean boot please post:
a) a new V2
b) a new image task manager
c) event viewer script results (not zipped)

I really don't have the time to run these tests here is the Disk report HTML file from HDtune if you wanna have a look. it is in zip file and needs to be opened via a web browser like chrome or edge. tested and confirmed it is working on Edge.

I am gonna disconnect all the Hard drives and do a clean boot and run those reports and logs you have requested all I really care about right now is my boot times and nothing else.

There is pay software that can save applications so that you can clean install.

Tuning up the computer takes time.

The disk errors included:

paging
retried
controller
etc.

It's best to investigate.


The logs displayed multiple BSOD.

These may have been fixed by uninstalling the earlier software.
However there were no collected mini dump files.

There are multiple types of drive tests.

HD Sentinel performs SMART and the results are instantaneous.

In the forums we see drives that fail that have HD Sentinel results > 90%


It's best to test the drives with the other HD Sentinel test (pay version) or perform the free tests using HD Tune and Sea Tools for Windows.

Look I really don't know what you mean about disk errors and BSODS as I haven't had any in months now and all my BSODs before was all due to the wrong BIOS Settings a while back as the RAM speeds were wrong and if you look at my HD Tune it all says my drives are good health wise and I think were going the wrong direction here I wanna focus on my boot times and removing the drives from the equation should not only help speed things up there would be less devices we will need to look at.

I have done a clean boot with all non Microsoft services disabled and no start up apps as recommended.
I have ran V2 and event viewer logs as you have requested I have uploaded a video of my PC rebooting it is under a clean boot so that you can see exactly what I mean when it stays too long on the LOGO and spinning circle.

here is my event logs it is 8MB in size uploaded to google drive.

For the threads we troubleshoot major problems seen in the logs.

There were multiple recent problems identified in the logs that were reported:

BSOD
Drive problems
etc.

These you don't want to troubleshoot.

When troubleshooting unexpected problems can happen.

For example failure to boot, drive failure, corruption etc.

Focusing on one problem and ignoring the other significant problems can be done.
It's not my style.
So I'm going to sign off.

I likely just need someone who knows what to look for in the Windows Performance Analyzer I am getting a bit desperate that I would even be willing to give remote access to my machine using Anydesk as I know that sharing a large ETL file does not seem to take any one's interest.

Have you been to the motherboard manufacturers forums or tried to find a user forum elsewhere concerning your motherboard? The reason I ask is that some high end motherboards do take an age to boot up, compounded by loading them up with high capacity, high speed ram, overclocks etc.
Maybe other users have been reporting the same issues with that board, maybe there are BIOS updates available.
You have a lot of hard drives, both SSD and spinners, it is possible your power supply is under spec for the number of drives fitted. Especially when the system is under any real load leading to the I/O, disk errors the logs show, made apparent when the drives spin up to read/ write, just a thought.

As @zbook mentions in post #11, your BIOS time of 43s is far too long. His 2.8s is unattainable for Ryzen based systems such as yours and mine. My completely stable system takes between 13 and 15s in BIOS as reported by task manager. That took a lot of tweaking and is still a bit slow for my liking. Intel systems are always capable of faster BIOS boot times. Nevertheless you should be able to reduce that 43s significantly. As @DigitalGoat says above, you will get better help for the BIOS settings in a user forum for your motherboard.
I would add that Ryzen 5800x BIOSs seem to have a particular problem with USB settings, leading to disconnections - it seems to be related to the AMD chipset AGESA. If you have external USB hard drives, they may have problems connecting during the BIOS/UEFI boot process, which would certainly slow everything down. Some older BIOS files seem to work better than the latest ones in this regard.
Good luck,
John

As @zbook mentions in post #11, your BIOS time of 43s is far too long. His 2.8s is unattainable for Ryzen based systems such as yours and mine. My completely stable system takes between 13 and 15s in BIOS as reported by task manager. That took a lot of tweaking and is still a bit slow for my liking. Intel systems are always capable of faster BIOS boot times. Nevertheless you should be able to reduce that 43s significantly. As @DigitalGoat says above, you will get better help for the BIOS settings in a user forum for your motherboard.
I would add that Ryzen 5800x BIOSs seem to have a particular problem with USB settings, leading to disconnections - it seems to be related to the AMD chipset AGESA. If you have external USB hard drives, they may have problems connecting during the BIOS/UEFI boot process, which would certainly slow everything down. Some older BIOS files seem to work better than the latest ones in this regard.
Good luck,
John
my BIOS is already up to date and I have been able to bring down my BIOS time to 28 seconds after disabling Legacy USB devices as can be seen below.
I am not sure if I could get that down even further as This Asus TUF X570 really is slow to post even if nothing is plugged in.
and as can be seen in my posted video it is the LOGO and Spinning circle that is just taking too long to load.

How old is your install ?
Did you disable your boot display and set your timer to 1 second in the Bios ?
Remember, the Motherboard performs tests on itself before it hands things over to windows.

This was just recently upgraded to Windows 11 just a few months ago the original Windows 10 install has been there for years before that.
I actually have FASTBOOT enabled and have it set to 0 seconds.

Looks like my BIOS time is normal for a Ryzen so you are correct that it can't get any faster as it's been reported to be normal in a lot of forums and in several Reddit posts.
