    Hi, i need some help
    I decided to do a fresh install of Win 10 last night and that went fine.
    But it now takes over 3 minutes to boot into windows :(
    it was never very fast, use to take about 1 min which never really bothered me before

    What is happening is
    turn on pc
    ROG symbol, press f2 or del to enter bios message
    45 secs later, the boot into bios message goes.
    just ROG symbol for 35 secs
    Screen flashes
    ROG symbol again with a loading circle
    100 secs later, windows opens really fast

    my specs
    Win 10 Pro
    Asus Rog Maximus Vii Hero Z97 (latest bios)
    i7 4770k (stock)
    Crucial mx100 256gb SSD
    Patriot 24000mhz ram
    4 x 1tb mechanical hard drives

    I have been in the uefi bios, tried enabling fast boot, made no difference
    Boot order is win boot manager SSD drive first

    My guess is its trying to load a driver or or is it the 4 x mech hard drives causing the problem?
    tbh i dont really know
