Well, the Radeon video card has also some drivers for the audio so I guess that at least some of its hardware has some audio related parts.

I was hopping that it could be a conflict with this Radeon parts and my onboard Realtek audio since Radeon'sbios wasn't the original one.

So I have try to find its original bios and flashed it = no change :thumbup:w00t::realmad:

Hi for everyone.

I've a problem with my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit on HP EliteBook 6930p with Samsung 830 SSD disk. Start time is about 80-130 sec, too long. I check many things, but with no results.

I prepare two etl file (by xbootmgr with your instrutctions on first page). They are available at https://rapidshare.com/files/3383616086/Boot.rar.

I suspect WmiPrvSE.exe and LogonUI.exe processes to Windows delay, but i cannot find any hard proof for this.

Could you please to help me with this problem?

Many thanks!

can you please upload it to your SkyDrive/dropbox or a faster free file hoster (zippyshare.com or mediafire.com)? RS is soo slow for a free user (16kb/s).

ok, loading your profile is extremely slow. can please you try this hotfix:

Unexpectedly slow startup or logon process in Windows Server 2008 R2 or in Windows 7

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2617858/en-us

When you perform one of the following operations on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7, the operation may take a long time to complete:

Start the computer

Log on to Windows

For example, the computer takes three or more minutes to start.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) component unnecessarily performs a full validation of the WMI repository.

Note A full validation of the WMI repository is a time-consuming operation.

Does it help?

Thanks for HotFix. But installation do nothing.

I see Hotfix at Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and features -> Installed Updates --> Microsoft Windows: Hotfix for Microsoft Windows (KB2617858), installed today.

After two times of laptop restarting, i try one again xbootmgr. Results (with evtx file: Boot_Performance_Monitor_2012-05-01__eventId100.evtx):

the hotfix worked for the WMI issue. Is is now completely gone.

But loading profile is still slow. I need more data. Start ProcessMonitor and activate boot logging. Now run the xbootmgr command. After reboot, start ProcessMonitor again and save the data into a PML file. Stop the xbootmgr log and compress all files and upload them.

I have no idea. You have several tools which interact during logon (McAfee, Check Point Identity Agent, Validity Sensors Fingerprint).

Do the old Clean boot approach to find which 3rd party tool causes the issue:

Andre,

I know you've encountered this issue with other before but I'm hoping you (or anyone else) might have a solution. When I attempt to run a boot trace

xbootmgr -trace boot -traceFlags BASE+CSWITCH+POWER -resultPath C:\TEMP\default

I receive the error message when boot trace finishing counting down after the desktop loads:

Couldn't find user-mode logger in active logger list.

Unable to stop trace.

Stopping trace...

Couldn't find kernel logger in active logger list.

Couldn't find user-mode logger in active logger list

This leaves me with unmerged .etl files. I will copy the entire xboottrace log below.

In a previous post you linked to a forum where they suggested manipulating registry entries, but I am concerned doing so may enable ReadyBoost, Superfetch, or Disk Defrag. I want to avoid this because I am using an SSD as my system disk.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Superfetch seems to be disabled. Enable the service again.

I do not want to enable Superfetch because my OS drive is an SSD.

I successfully created a boot trace about six months ago without Superfetch enabled.

Any ideas?

I am looking for assistance in shortening my boot time to some thing reasonable.

Slow boot up with windows 7 64 bit. Asrock Z68 Extreme4 motherboard, 16 GB ram, AMD Saphire 5770 video, 240 GB OCZ Agility Sata3 SSD, 1 TB WD black internal drive, 3 TB WD30EZRX internal drive. Boots in 19 s after bios with internal drives disconnected, 22 s with 1 TB drive connected, but 97 s when 3 TB drive is added. Last bios update for MB installed. Latest Windows updates installed. No firmware update for the WD30EZRX drive that I am aware of. FWIW, I orignially used ghost to transfer the contents of a 1 TB drive to the 3 TB drive, which turned the drive into a 2 TB drive requiring a removal of partion etc to restore to a functioning 3 TB drive. I ran trace but I will admit it means little to me. It might mean more if I disconnected the 3 TB drive and ran it then so I could compare the 22 s boot to the 97 s boot with the 3 TB drive added, but this is not really my strong suit.

I believe I have attached the trace file, but if not I'm sure you will let me know.

Thanks!
