Windows boot taking forever, OS is on SSD

Recently, windows has started taking forever to boot (about 5-10 minutes). 

The screen with the blue windows logo on windows 10 pops up and the rotating dots do the animation...

My OS is written on a crucial MX 250 GB SSD.

My startup time used to be like 10 seconds, now its 10 minutes... Any insight into my issue??

I used to have this, it was a sign of a bad motherboard. Try a BIOS update and if that doesn't work, you should test your SSD in another system

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

True. I had this on my system as well and a BIOS update fixed the issue.

BIOS update as in flashing from a USB? Because I think its running the latest version, and when it was taking 10 seconds to boot it hasn't updated at all since then. I know a couple other people having the boot time issue but idk

It could be caused by a device you plugged into the USB ports recently. Some times external HDDs or even a Keyboard can cause this too. Though firmware usually helps with that. Firmware initializtiom of the devices gets caught in a loop or something like that.
