ROG STRIX x399-E booting painfully slow

Schlumpf

Hello everybody!

Setup:
Mainboard: ROG STRIX x399-E
CPU: AMD Ryzen TR 1950X
RAM: 2x 16GB @3000MHz
SSD (OS):970EVO 500GB
SSD (Data): 960EVO 250GB
Ext. HDD (Data): Seagate USB 3.0 3TB
GPU: Asus GeForce 1080

Problem:
When booting up the Computer (AC was off before) it takes about 30-40 seconds to boot into the windows login screen.
Only setting I've changes is the RAM Profile which is set to XMP-Profile (3000MHz), default was 2333Mhz.
Once booted the system is fast and has no issues. When turning on the Computer I get the very fist beep sounds 15 secounds after I pressed the button, my old systemen needed 3 seconds to do this.

I would very much appriciate any advise if possible.

The POST process does entail training, etc.

Currently on my mobile device, but will link a post from a good authority on information. RAM training is complex on Ryzen. I have not owned HEDT Intel, but from posts I have read on say X99 it wasn't very quick either. Dunno about X299.

Have you tried using Sleep? system POST's very fast on resume. Power usage in sleep is extremely low.


I always shutdown the computer completely, there is no option for me to use sleep mode since I plug out the cord everytime I am not on my computer.

Why on earth do you do that?
POST from cold boot (entirely powerless) takes longer, if you have RAM OC it will also do a soft reboot after initial memory training.

Motherboards with lots of features/components take a long time to POST.. I assume you have never worked with real servers (including blade servers) who can take a loong time to POST if you have RAID cards and SAN with multipath connected to them.

In other news: My laptop, Acer Predator PH517-61 with Ryzen 7 2700 is really quick in POST (hibernation and quickboot disabled). Laptops are quicker to boot, and at the same time much more limited in comparison.

Ahh okay I understand.

Could someone tell me where the MRC Fastboot and MCH Fullcheck settings are on this board? I looked all over and can't find them. My board will initially power up then shut down for 6 seconds, then come back up and for about a minute go through all the memory codes before I get a successful POST beep. Then it will be another 30 seconds before I'm on my Win 10 lock screen. I would have expected this with 486 and early Pentium boards in the mid 90s but not today.

Thank you.

Don't know of anything but what has been mentioned previously about Post times.

But for boot times, you could get HWinfo https://www.hwinfo.com/download/
Use hwinfo check and see if you have setup the M2 device correctly. On the summary page, (bottom right) Operating System: UEFI Boot (in green) and Secure boot (in green) anything else and the setup for the M2 isn't strictly optimal.


Here is the procedure for install of windows on nvme drive.

1 - Make sure you unplug all SATA and USB drives, the M.2 drive has to be the only drive installed.
2 - Go into the bios, under the boot tab there is an option for CSM, make sure it is disabled.
3 - Click on secure boot option below and make sure it is set to other OS, Not windows UEFI.
4 - Click on key management and clear secure boot keys.
5 - Insert a USB memory stick with a UEFI bootable iso of Windows 10 on it.
7 - Windows will now start installing to your NVME drive as it has its own NVME driver built in.
8 - When the PC reboots hit F2 to go back into the BIOS, you will see under boot priority that windows boot manager now lists your NVME drive.
9 - Click on secure boot again but now set it to WIndows UEFI mode.
10 - Click on key management and install default secure boot keys
11 - Press F10 to save and exit and windows will finish the install.

Once you have Windows up and running, shutdown the PC and reconnect your other SATA drives. Typically you don't put anything on SATA port 1 as this is now reserved for the NVME drive and *may cause a conflict (*so don't use it unless you have no choice).

Hope you find this of help 😉
