I have a z70-e gaming and whenever I boot or reboot my PC I got stuck in the Asus logo screen loading operational system in like 4 to 6 minutes until finally appears the Microsoft password screen. I tryed so many things, like XMP, fast boot, Intel Rapid Storage Technology, and nothing changes that time.
OS is installed on a Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB SSD.
Other interesting information: My "Last BIOS Time" is showing 23.0 seconds, but cmon.. the last time was 4.5min lol
Intel I7 7700K
Asus ROG Strix Z370-E Gaming
G.SKILL Trident Z 32GB 3200MHz
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070
Samsung 970 Evo 1TB SSD (Windows installed on this)
NVME SSD 256GB (nothing installed on this)
As you can see, its not a bad build, and does not justify the time it takes to just startup/reboot.
This didn't happen recently, it's been like this for over a year now. I already formatted the PC a couple times and nothing changed.
PLEASE HELP ME!!
In the task manager, you can disable programs that start with windows, this should help improve boot time. I'm on a newer z690 motherboard.
