Hello,

I am having trouble with a slow boot on a Sony vaio SA laptop using an SSD and I am also getting a slow resume speed.

I have attached my start up log any ideas?

James

you made a normal boot.

 <timing bootDoneViaExplorer="21912" bootDoneViaPostBoot="35612"

Windows boots in 21.9s to the Startscreen/desktop and is fully booted in 25.6s.

I can see that the service Function discovery takes over 9s to start:

<serviceTransition name="FDResPub" group="" transition="start" totalTransitionTimeDelta="9809

Have you tried the fast startup? this should solve the long service start issue, the suspend/resume is much faster.

I have looked around online and done what I can and it looks like fast boot is enabled so could it be my system that does not like it?

you used the wrong command. Your command did a normal boot. Use the fastStartup command at the end of the guide. Also make sure fastStartup is enabled in the power option.

it is much faster, not only a little.

<timing bootDoneViaExplorer="10350" bootDoneViaPostBoot="22950"  postBootDisturbance="2600"

Windows boots in 10.4s to the UI and is fully booted in 12.9s.

the longest delay is resuming the VSNService, which takes 4.7s and causes most of the time your system takes to resume (9.8s)

<interval name="SystemResume" startTime="27042" endTime="36819" duration="9777">

<suspendservices start="5897760" duration="4723872" totalChildrenDuration="4723719">
  <service start="5918982" duration="4644958" name="VSNService" /> 

Do you need this special VAIO Utility? if not disable it.

looks like the reading of the hibernation file is slow:

hiberread="77696000"

your Hitachi Travelstar 5K250 160GB is not the fastest HDD.

Oh yeah, those HDD is my secondary Drive and I installed at HDD Caddy, I got it from my old laptop. My Primary is SSD Team Xtreem S3 120GB and I install windows 8 in SSD.

Maybe I will try to tweak hibermate settings :-/ (size to 100%)

I was asking because my fresh install of Windows 8 takes 5+ minutes or so to boot.

SMSSInit is very slow.

<interval name="SMSSInit" startTime="5376" endTime="429690" duration="424314">

I need the ETL file to see more. Why are you not using the new fast startup?

The fast startup option in the power options? I am using it.
My ETL is 100mb

you have disk IO. Check if Autochk.exe is the cause (click on the left icon next to the disk io graph)

If you use fast boot, run the faststartup xbootmgr command at the end of the guide. You did the normal "old-school" boot.

All I got from the graph was ' System Processes (4) '
Also I renamed Autochk.exe, but there was no difference in the boot time.

the trace shows autochk runs at this time. Delete the autochk entry from BootExecute in the registry and run chkdsk yourself.

Again there was little to no difference in boot time.
Any idea why smss.exe would be taking so long?

smss.exe runs so long because autochk runs during boot (smss:BootExecute)

I stopped autochk from running, there is no difference in boot time.

this time InitializeRegistry takes so much time.

Add +Registry+REG_HIVE to the command (after POWER) and -stackwalk RegQueryKey+RegDeleteKey+RegCreateKey+RegOpenKey+RegSetValue+RegDeleteValue+RegQueryValue+RegCloseKey+RegCloseKey

xbootmgr -trace boot -traceFlags BASE+CSWITCH+DRIVERS+POWER+Registry+REG_HIVE -stackwalk RegQueryKey+RegDeleteKey+RegCreateKey+RegOpenKey+RegSetValue+RegDeleteValue+RegQueryValue+RegCloseKey -resultPath C:\TEMP

this activates registry data collection.
