Windows 10 SLOOWWW boot

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey fellas,

just upgraded from win7 to win10 and its significantly slower than when i had windows 7.  I'm sure there are lots of people dealing with this, i want to hear what people have done to help or fix it.  From the time i hit my power button to my desktop loading is about 1 minute, before it was probably 15 seconds.  I have a SSD.

Short answer: clean install

Long answer: clean instaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallll

 

Just back up your crap, find time to do it and get it over with, it's totally worth it, upgrading always breaks at least something.

Couldn't say it better myself.

 

Feel free to use the guide in my signature.

i have actually done a clean install but i have noticed my boot time is a bit slower that is was in 8.1. i removed the log in requirement but it still goes to that windows 10 boot screen that i didn't have to deal with before.

How do you do a clean install of Windows 10, when you upgraded from Windows 7???

 

I tried using the Key I got for Windows 10, it didn't accept it :/

You should upgrade from Windows 7 and should get activation confirmation. To check Go to Settings-->Update & Security-->Activation. Check if it is activated or not.

 

Then do clean install. It won't accept the key at the time of fresh installation. So you might have to skip the key entry at first. Also at second place at the time of setup.

 

At final, you won't be asked any key. Because it will fetch the key from the motherboard. This will only work if you activate at first.

 

This is what happened to my system.
