open the dmp and run !analyze -v and post the output here.

When I wanted a trace, windows gave me a bsod and when I wanted a BSOD, it gave me a trace.
Somehow, I managed to perform a boot trace with drivers flag and without any bsod. I am attaching for your perusal. Two drivers seem to delay the boot- fltmgr.sys and bowser.sys whose details I could not find
By the way, the only thing I changed was upgrade the xbootmgr (I installed the windows 7.1 sdk(upgraded from ver 7.0)). So, see if it resolves the problem for you.
P.S. I have observed that system activity is zero during the first 3-4 secs. No disk utilisation, no processor usage... What areyour comments on that??

Read my trace guide and you see that the first steps is to load all boot relevat drivers. in oyur case it takes to load the SPTD driver (Demon tools) and the IDE controller. that's why you see no activity.
You should really remove MSE and try a different tool. MSE is still slow.

Have you found the crash dump (in C:\Windows\Minidump)? Can you share them? The MSFT employee replied and I need the STOP Code.

The MSFT employee looks at it to see more.

Probably caused by : usbvideo.sys ( usbvideo+3783 )

* Bugcheck Analysis *
This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem. Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003. This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG. This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG. This will let us see why this breakpoint is
Arg1: ffffffffc0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: fffff800031bde87, The address that the exception occurred at

I was able to replicate the problem. Most likely the issue is with webcam drivers
Posted 09 January 2011 - 07:27 AM
I can confirm that the issue is with webcam driver. Disabling the integrated webcam solves the problem for me.

First of all, thanks for the tips MagicAndre1981, I followed your speed up guide and got something like 30% of boot time reduction.
I have a doubt, i found that the c:\Windows\Prefetch\ReadyBoot have only the TraceX.fx files before i run the xbootmgr command, after that i found a lot of files inside this dir, named as fxboot_xxxxx. Only after running the xbootmgr I found these optimization files. Would you know why Microsoft didnt programmed Windows to optimeze itself (i mean automatically)?

BTW, at first I was getting this message:
And the solution to that message was to disable Windows Search Service.
This is my boot trace: ...
MagicAndre1981, i hope you can help me to see if there is something slowing down my boot time

your Windows boot is extremely slow
timing bootDoneViaExplorer="91085" bootDoneViaPostBoot="213285"
it needs 91s to boot to the desktop and 203s to boot completely!
interval name="PreSMSS" startTime="0" endTime="15588" duration="15588">
The "Controladora RAID VIA VT8237" takes 11s to initialize.
<interval name="WinlogonInit" startTime="31173" endTime="69873" duration="38700">
login to your user profile is slow (8s). and starting the services is slow:
services autoStartStartTime="38101" autoStartEndTime="135373" autoStartDuration="97272">
I can see that the Microsoft SQL Server Express service start slowly. Do you need the SQL server? Next the SBSDWSCService ("C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy\) is slow. remove this crapware. You have NOD32, this is enough.
After removing those services, start the optimization again and remove the Warez (NODLogin) from your PC and buy NOD32
And also don't use Raxco PerfectDisk, only the integrated defrag tool. Also remove Comodo, it also slows down the PC. Use AutoRuns to disable all unneeded tools from automatic startup.

Thanks for your reply. I've followed your recommendations and this is my new boot trace: ....
It's better now, but It comes to my attention those three files: csc.sys, mup.sys and fltmgr.sys
Why are they taking so long to startup
Do you think I can still do some changes to improve my boot time ?

timing bootDoneViaExplorer="78685" bootDoneViaPostBoot="150985"
79s to desktop and 140s to finish completely.
You disabled Superfetch which disables all boot improvements. Enable it and run the optimization again.

It gives me this error:
"Windows could not start the Superfetch service on Local Computer.
Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified."
I'm trying to figure out what's causing that, but no luck yet
