Hello,i`ve just installed windows 8.1 pro and i have some concerning regarding boot time and shutdown process.
I`ve seen this video The Best Windows 8 Experience from ASUS Motherboards. - YouTube , from what i can see it takes about 5 sec until the bios logo disappears and 1-2 sec for windows to boot.My motherboard is p8p67 deluxe, it takes about 10-11 sec for the logo to disappears so I should have a 12-13 boot time right?Well, I don`t, it takes 18 sec to boot if I shutdown the windows using the button from my case and about 21 seconds if i shut it down directly from windows(another strange thing).From what I know, from the moment the bios logo disappears , the boot doesn't have anything to do with the motherboard anymore.
So my questions are, why it doesn`t take 1-2 sec to boot in windows after the bios logo disappears and why there are different behaviors if i shut it down from the case button or windows directly.And by the way, i get the same boot times if fast startup is enabled or when is not !!!(maybe fast startup isn't working ?)
My computer has an i7 @4,5 Ghz, 8gb ddr3 and 2 x vertex 3 MI 240gb in raid0.
