Boot time slowing down after being stuck in "preparing automatic repair"

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP


First of all here are the specs:

MSI B450M Mortar

Ryzen 2400G (IGP Disabled)

Sapphire Nitro RX 480

16GB(8x2 2400 Mhz) Corsair LPX 

Intel 660P NVME 512gb(boot disk)



So, I was updating my drivers via IObit Driver Boost and after the updates I went ahead and restarted my computer and it got stuck in the preparing for repair loop. It would soon end lead me to this?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.howtogeek.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2012%2F12%2Fimage151.png&f=1&nofb=1

screen and rinse and repeat.


Tried couple things like repairing from a windows disk, sfc /scannow from command prompt but it didnt take.


I ended up doing a system restore which windows said it failed but automatically restarted the computer and booted up to my desktop.

The major difference is the boot time.

Before the motherboard logo would barely flash and then windows would come up and according to the task manager the startup time was always in between 6-8 seconds.

Now the motherboard screen stays there for a solid 5-6 seconds and according results of multiple reboots the task manager startup says it is 12 seconds.


I am concerned that something is wrong and frustrated by the boot time.

Can you guys help?
