    What SSD brand and model? Check the S.M.A.R.T. info for the SSD and see if there are any reallocated sectors and check the CRC Error Count. I had a bad SATA 3 cable once and the CRC Errors piled up, this caused the drive to slow down to deal with the data errors.

    i have a WD internal drive which i use for files , photos mp3 ETC but i wiped all data and the drive is now empty
    If you still have a platter drive in there. That could be the root cause.

    The above section of the output from bcdedit is in your BCD (Boot Configuration Data) and is setup to point to the Recovery Partition and since the Recovery Partition is unallocated and missing. It might have something to do with the delay during boot.

    Your HD might have some bad sectors and could also be the cause for the delay during boot.
    You can download:CrystalDiskInfo5_6_2Shizuku.zip and run it. Look at the info of the WD HD to see if you have any bad sector (indicated by yellow exclamation mark). If so, from the Admin command prompt,
    run: chkdsk C: /r /f <====this will take a while to run depending on how bad the HD is, several hours is normal so please be patient.

    I have a 238GB SAMSUNG SSD 830 Series,
    i took the power from the HDD and the computer still didnt load for 8 minutes so can i rule out the 2nd internal drive as the problem?

    i ran the test and all sectors are good , is there any way i can remove the Recovery Partition that is unallocated and missing or change it? i have done a clean reboot and this problem was before and after
