I'm getting soo many problems regarding booting after upgrading to W8 Pro yesterday on my Asus Zenbook UX32A.
2nd Gen i3-2367M processor @ 1.4GHz (for Ultrabooks)
6GB DDR3 RAM
500GB HDD + 30GB SSD (for Fast Resume, etc.)
Issue # 1: Whenever I Restart or Shut Down, the system HANGS there and does not progress *most* of the time. To fix this I have to always resort to holding the power button.
Issue # 2: When I boot the PC up, it takes SO long for me to get to the Start menu, around 1:15-1:30 min, which is longer than it took me on W7. I know I have an HDD, but this is abnormally long to me. Once in a blue moon, I will boot up in a matter of 30-40 seconds (which I think is how long it should take), but mostly it takes really long.
Issue # 3: To test the above 2 issues, I went ahead and opened msconfig from Run, and disabled all Non-Microsoft services except AVG to check. When I shutdown and power on - everything is fine, shuts down nicely, powers on nicely - however, the second time I do this, the system will hang on shut down, or will hang on start up, sometimes I can hear the startup sound but nothing on the screen, all sorts of weird actions.
Issue # 4: This one is funny. On standby (lid down), the system will restart itself. Happened while I was sleeping, I could hear the boot sound.
Please help me!!
EDIT: The problem is still there when I disable 'Fast Start-Up' in Power Options. The problem is due to the processor state, it keeps resetting to 100%.
