    Slow Boot Black Screen After Windows Logo

    When booting, my windows 8.1 is slow to do load. After windows logo, it goes to a black screen for around 10 secs, then it finally logs into the Start menu. I know this is not normal becasue I have seen the system boot faster in the past, but I don't know why its doing it now.

    I have done a fresh install of windows 8 and update to 8.1.
    I made to to have Fast Boot enabled
    I have haswell, so I made to update to the latest graphics drivers by Intel
    On a second note: I am triple booting: osx/linux/win with Chamelon boot loader. However, I doubt its an issue with triple boot because the black screen occurs AFTER windows logo, meaning windows has successfully loaded

    Hello Tcabin01,

    Does your computer bios currently load in EUFI mode?

    if so have you tried running in legacy? how to:

    BIOS Mode - See if Windows Boot in UEFI or Legacy Mode

    Hope that helps!
