Hi
To start create a summary xml file, i type xperf /tti -i standby_BASE+CSWITCH+DRIVERS+POWER_1.etl -o summary_boot.xml -a boot

message is:

xperf : error: summary_boot.xml: failed to open output file (0x80070005)

Tried even with elevated cmd. Did not help

Any idea how to generate the xml ? Or can anyone understand the content of my etl file to analyze this directly ?

SMSSInit is slow (81s):

- <interval name="SMSSInit" startTime="8115" endTime="89908" duration="81793">


compress the ETl, upload it to mediafire.com and send me the link.

C:\Windows\system32\autochk.exe scans your HDDs and this causes the delay. Check the SMART values of your OCZ-VERTEX2 and your 4 SAMSUNG HD103SJ Drives.

from the trace I can see that the System process causes some high CPU usage and the causing function is:

ntkrnlmp.exe! ?? ::FNODOBFM::`string'


Run this:

xbootmgr -trace boot -traceFlags BASE+CSWITCH+DRIVERS+POWER+LATENCY+DISPATCHER+PERF_COUNTER+PRIORITY+REGISTRY+FILE_IO+FILE_IO_INIT -stackWalk Profile+ProcessCreate+CSwitch+ReadyThread+Mark+ThreadCreate -resultPath C:\TEMP

this captures some more data (CSwitch, ReadyThread, CPU usage, threadcreate).

But you should still check the HDDs and your OCZ SSD. Also create a full back of the Systemdrive and install the 1.35 firmware, your 1.11 is a bit old:

1 thing I can see is that the service LANManagerService starts extremely SLOW. This is the service which you need to share files. Do you share files in your network? If not, set the starttype to "on demand/manual".

Also, do you run the HDD and SSD in IDE or AHCI mode? If IDE change to AHCI.

Can someone please have a look at this tracefile: Tracefile
I have an SSD installed and disabled various services: search, prefetch, hybernate etc.
Thanks a lot!
Edit: Forgot to tell this PC is part of a domain.

WinlogonInit takes too long (289seconds):

+ <interval name="WinlogonInit" startTime="10347" endTime="300105" duration="289757">

entering the password takes so long:

Attached File  Winlogoninit.png   12.14KB   10 downloads

so type in the password faster.

Thanks for looking into this!
I enter the password as soon as the Welcome screen displays. It stays black for minutes before that.

can you use Autologon from sysinternals and enter your account details + password to speed this up? Do you still see the delay?

Do you sue a Domain account or local account?

I will try AutoLogon and report the results.
I use a domain logon.
I also inform you that a reboot doesn't take much time. Resume after Standby (not hybernate) doesn't take a long time either. Unless the Standby mode has been for a longer period, i.e. more than an hour or so. In that case the resume would take several minutes.

Hello,

I've been debugging a slow Windows 8 CP boot for days and can not figure it out. Symptoms are a 50 Second boot time. . .

It seems that StorPort.sys and WDF01000.sys are stalling the process but both are MS drivers so I can't disable to isolate the problem.

Boot Trace is here -

https://skydrive.liv...rive&Bsrc=Share

and System Summary is here -

https://skydrive.liv...rive&Bsrc=Share

Of course if there are any other problems that you see (I left the trace running for the full 120 seconds post boot) I would appreciate the comment!

Thanks a ton in advance,
Victor
