Long WinLogon init after upgrading from Windows 7

25 posts in this topic

Hello!

I've got the upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8, everything is great, system works faster and UI is nice (for me :) ). But I've faced the problem with blank black screen before the system shows me logon ui. The blank screen holds for a quite time and the boot time has increased at least twice (comparing to Win7 boot time before) with this lag. It's really annoying for me, so I've made boot trace with xbootmgr.

This is what I've got:

http://puu.sh/1mp7w

Winlogon phase lasts ~25 seconds.

I've tried to do "xbootmgr -trace boot -prepSystem -verboseReadyBoot" but after second boot xbootmgr hangs on "Preparing system..." stage and nearly 40-50 minutes later finishes off with error message: http://puu.sh/1mrKR

Also I've reinstalled all drivers to match Windows 8 support - no effect anyway.

I am not able to understand the reason of this lag, so I'm asking for your help.

Here is Windows Performance Analyzer trace file's download link:

Thanks.

UPD:

I was able to perform -prepSystem successfully with fixing registry values for defrag service. I achieved greatly increased perfomance for postboot stage. However, winlogon lag is still here and continues to annoy me.

Are you using your pre-existing Windows 7 account when booting into Windows 8? Have you tried testing with a new user account?

Waiting for Local Session Manager causes an 18s and entering the password a 5s delay:

User Logons hang for an extended time. Citrix logons hang while displaying “please wait for local session manager.” Microsoft-Windows-User Profiles Service event 1521 indicates that Windows cannot locate a profile due to error “access is denied.”

Root cause: Folders and subfolders were manually copied into the users profile tree instead of following the steps in KB 973289

I've tried to boot PC with network router switched off. Boot time took only ~5 seconds without any blank screen lags. Incredible! However, it all turns back with active network connection.

Are you using your pre-existing Windows 7 account when booting into Windows 8? Have you tried testing with a new user account?

Using pre-existing Windows 7 profile upgraded to Live account. But I think it doesn't matter because boot process lags at pre-logonui stage.

I'm sorry, but I don't understand what I have to do with Local Session Manager delay. I tried to read the article you provided, but I didn't get anything. Can you give me some advice please?

I think this is the issue. I've also seen slow Logontimes with a LiveAccount.

Querying the patch \\;Csc\.\.\ takes 13s. This is offline files. Do you use offline files? Are they ok. Check this.

No, I have never used this functionality of Windows. I tried to switch off offline files option in sync center but there was still lagging after the reboot.

And there is still something (explorer shows folder sized 0 bytes) in C:\Windows\CSC, which I am not able to remove due to permissions restrictions - http://puu.sh/1ok6e
