Windows 8.1 Pro x64 Boot Very Slow on Some Computers

2013-Nov-11 | Tags: bootwindows8

Start64!Windows 8.1 is supposed to be the fastest Windows version to date, but it turns out that the new operating system is actually very slow on some machines.

Users are now complaining that Windows 8.1 boots and shuts down extremely slow, with the entire process taking more than 2 minutes, even though no modifications have been made to the default configuration.

This time, incompatible drivers and unsupported apps don’t seem to be the cause, as users who posted the bug on Microsoft’s Community forums claim they’ve tried all possible workarounds.
