    5 minute blackout at startup before desktop or tiles

    When I boot up or change users, it goes black for about 5 minutes and then everything shows up and works fine. What is this black period? I sense the computer is searching for something?
    I am using the Classic Shell also. I have the latest 8.1.

    It's loading Classic Shell. I Used Classic Shell but i removed it before i upgrade to Windows 8.1 because it takes a long time to boot up because of Classic Shell.
