I have the modle under yours for the Rog Stick, mine boots into windows with 3 seconds.
Quick few questions,
Are you talking about getting to windows loading screen or windows login in screen. It should take about 2 seconds to get to windows loading screen.
If you get to the windows loading screen within seconds ( 1 to 5) then it's a windows loading issue. Something is slowing it down.
Some people have complained since Dec update that it has caused longer boot times for windows 10. Best to check startup to see what could be slowing it down.
Number one causes I've found,
- Defrag program set to run before windows fully starts up
- Anti-virus program set to check before windows fully starts up
- Check disk set to run before windows fully starts up.
List can go on and on for programs to run checks before windows full loads, but you get the idea.
Also make sure Fast boot up is turned off in windows 10, it causes issue for half the people that use it. (If turned off, try and turn it on, tho like I said doesn't always work and can cause issues)
If splash screen is enabled, disable it for asus. I personally like to see the information about what was being loaded just to make sure it see everything, even tho it's only up for a second. Splash screen is the asus logo and background when PC is turned on, turning it off shows you what the bios has loaded, IE CPU, ram, hd and so on.
Do you use an SSD as your boot, a pure SDD/M.2 not a hybrid like the seagate HDDs.
Is the HDD/SDD's set to ACPI, RAID, or UEFI?
Reason I ask is if not set to ACPI or UEFI they will run much slower. Tho depending on how the bios is setup(Different from each MB maker) Raid could be ACPI as well. Fairly sure Asus doesn't do it this way. Tho if using windows 7 or higher best to setup it to UEFI or ACPI if UEFI isn't an option. Tho if it's not set then it will take a reformat and reinstall of windows to correct. There is a trick to fix it, but can damaged Boot sector and would have to restart anyways.
Do you have quick boot turned on or off. Tho even turned off mine boots up in 10 seconds.
I have 6 HD in my main PC reg. No issues. (2SDDS, 4 HDDS)
DId you just moved HD to new build and let windows update itself to new system, or was it a fresh install.
- If so might need to clear up old Driver information. Windows can still be looking for the old chipsets.
Just thought of one more thing, do you have 2 sdd's set to raid?
Reason i ask is Catutt did it awhile ago and he had slow some issues with it. Tho he could clearfly it for it me.
Side note nice setup, I'm waiting on Zen 2 to come out later this year to see if I'll be upgrading my CPU or not, still very happy with my 1600X, tho have little to no time for gaming right now.
