    Windows 8.1 64bit Pro

    Hmmm, don't get it.
    I have 2 PC's, a little one with an Celeron CPU and onboard graphic (build in the Celeron), 2 HDD. It has the black period for about 3 seconds. 4Gbyte ram

    Then I have a gamer PC, Windows boots from a Samsung 840 EVO SSD, there are 3 HDD's more in it, it has a Core i5 3570K CPU, and 8Gbyte ram. The gamer-PC has this balckout for about 10-11 seconds!!

    Both PC's are clean installed with the Windows 8.1 ISO (installed by a "tech-key", and then activated with my win-8 keys).
    But why is the more powerfull PC about 3 times slower than the little "surf" PC to get over this blackout?

    I have searched for a tool like "bootvis.exe" from an earlier windows version, that could monitor what is going on during boot, and then write a report about it. But I did not find any.

    Only way I can avoid the blackout with the gamer PC is Intel Rapid Start.

    Yah, thats about the only way you won't get the period of no video.

    On just about all of the Windows 8 Laptops I have worked on, the only ones that did not have that no video time-out were ones that used Rapid Start.
