Has anyone else been experiencing an extended Windows 11 loading time?
The Windows loading process alone takes anywhere from 53 to 55 seconds to complete before entering the login screen. 53 to 55 seconds from the start of the next picture to ending. This has been experienced on every BIOS version from the first released with the motherboard up to the latest 1220 version. Also experienced with each release of Windows 11 up to current. All Drivers have been continually current as well as all related software applications such as Armoury Crate. No USB devices connected.

The Kingston RAM is listed on the supported memory configuration list by ASUS, but only as a single 16GB stick whereas I'm running dual 16GB sticks which is not shown as a verified configuration. No memory-related issues or errors during POST or otherwise during normal Windows 11 operation.
I took a look at the System Logs in Event Viewer to see if anything popped up. Timing it with my cell phone the last extended loading time lasted from 11:35:07 to 11:36:01. The following is a screen shot of the system events through that time along with some shots of specific events.
There is a 45 second delay between the '11:35:15 e2fnexpress' and the 11:36:01 Ntfs (Microsoft-Windows-Ntfs) events...
I know 55 seconds of waiting time it a little ridiculous to be worrying about, but it's just odd that my previous Z87 build from 2012 and two laptops which are now seven years old running Windows 11 only take a few seconds to boot up.
Anyone have any ideas?
Also, the two only drives have been scanned with CHKDSK and no errors reported.
