May I ask if you updated the BIOS before the long boot time? If so, did you update the Intel ME first?
According to your description of the recent changes, could you please try the following two methods to confirm whether the boot speed has become faster?
- Test with minimal components, isolating the possible cause.
- Set the network card to a fixed IP.
@Jiaszzz_ROG Sorry for the delayed response - I made a video for you and then found that I got locked out of posting on the forums for the forum upgrade.
BIOS is mostly default except for the ASPM/APM settings, which I changed at Intel's recommendation (otherwise the A770 uses more power at idle), and I do have ReBar enabled (kind of a requirement for Intel Arc).
