    Titan GT80-SLI: from a cold boot, takes 4.5 minutes. A reboot takes 29 seconds. What's up?

    Clearly it's something that hangs it before the operating system loads. I optimized bootup as much as possible. Fast Boot disabled in BIOS. I looked at all the obvious things. The system is all SSD, it should fly and it does - when I reboot it. But a cold boot takes forever. Why such discrepancy?
    I get no errors during POST, it's just very slow.

    Just making sure, are your video drivers up to date? Have you checked the health of your RAM with a memtest?

    I've done neither. I let it do automatic updates and now on the latest-greatest 1903.

    I thought that video drivers automatically updated. I've never ran memtest.

    I have all 24GB of RAM active. No deallocated RAM.

    How about BIOS & EC? Is your OS running off a single drive mode or RAID 0?

    I deleted RAID. I am booting off a single Samsung PM981 SSD. It's supposed to be as fast as a RAID that came with it.

    I wonder if BIOS is still in the RAID mode.

    Whats your experience when booting cold? Is it a slow start to show the MSI logo? does it get stuck on the logo a while before the windows loading circle appears?

    No. The logo appears after 4-5 minutes and then goes by very fast as it should. It's the pre-logo timeframe that's extensive. Apparently before it even hits the disk. Before it even hits the operating system. It's not a Windows thing at all apparently.

    That's precisely it. The MSI logo shows for 10 minutes and it boots quickly. Any idea?

    You still have this issue today? And it went from 4~5 minutes to 10 minutes? :(
    What version of BIOS & EC? Did you set any option in the BIOS? Unlocked menu? What about a different boot disk?
