Looks like you have some stuff happening in BIOS as it takes a while to get through BIOS before it ever stars to get to your OS on your SSD. Once you see it cycling power, it loads very fast into your OS. The bulk of your time was BIOS posting and passing. I'd start there.

Very best,

Dang good point but I have no clue what it could be in BIOS I just reset BIOS and the only thing I changed was enabling XMP no clue what it could be. Thing is loading almost like a HDD in my opinion lol which is strange because I have AC Valhalla installed on it and it loads really fast. Guess I'll just take it how it is because I don't think there is going to be a fix for it. But thank you for your input anyway. Cheers!

Looks like the non-BIOS part of your boot time was 4 seconds.

Usually there are settings in BIOS to futz with to shorten BIOS boot time testing.

Yes that's what another person suggested on a different forums going to give it a try tomorrow. Thank you!

There are 2 places to look. One is usually called a fast boot setting to skip some boot up checks like ram I think. Another one is the wait time, which is the pause during boot up to give the user time to read whats on the display.

I don't get the fascination with OS boot times anyways. It's seconds. Seconds.

Then again, my machine is 24/7 on, on battery backup, and the drives are all set to never spin down, ever, so that it's always ready for maximum use without any latency between commands or seeks due to getting everything back online and working.

Very best,

I don't like enabling fastboot... Can't get to bios setting easily.
Yeah I decided not to mess with it after all.

You right I just saw some people showing how fast theirs's booted and wanted same performance but I am happy now the way mine is. I rather not mess with settings in BIOS that I don't know what they will do.
