Go to solution Solved by Exonoz,

My Xiaomi notebook boot time is under 10 seconds. So that nvme drives takes longer time to compared to and SATA drive is bullshit.

 

I got my desktop to boot in around 15-20 seconds after a lot of troubleshooting yesterday. 

 

If someone find this post in the future and have the same motherboard as me I will help out for sure.

Hello.

Problems:

1: Boot Time
The boot time is about a minutte

2: Speeds
Sequential read speed around 2100 MB/s
Sequential write speed around 1000 MB/s
4KB random read: around 200k IOPS
4KB random write: around 200k IOPS

Specs: 
OS: Windows 10 Home 64bit 
Motherboard: ASUS Z170-DELUXE 
CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K (not oc atm)
RAM: HyperX Fury 2400MHz 16GB

- I have tried to install the drive in the M.2 socket 3 on the motherboard but still the same problem.

- Other SSD's are working as normal.

maybe all your other drives are saturating speeds? Or you might need to poke around in the mobo make sure all configs are properly configured

Is the only "problem" that boot time is about a minute? That's pretty normal for booting from a PCIe device...

really? my 850 evo boots in about 15 seconds....

Because it's a SATA device. PCIe boot devices take longer. My 850 EVO boots Windows 7 in about 15 seconds as well.

Nope, look at boot times for the Intel 750 PCIe SSD. They're slow because it takes longer for the motherboard to choose a PCI boot device as normally you would boot of a SATA drive. Some EFIs will prioritize things differently and choose the M.2 drive faster than others.
