    How to track boot-sequence for errors?


    Greetings.
    In the Windows XP-times we had a program called "bootvis.exe" that was really good finding programs, drivers aso that kept WinXP from booting fast.
    Is there a program like that for windows 8.1?
    If not, how do I find the thing that keep my boottime on 43 sec from a Samsung 840EVO? (Boottime is WITHOUT POST-time!!)
    After about 9 seconds in the boot-process, the screen turns black, and all HDD-activity stops. A very tiny blink about every 7 seconds for the next 30 seconds, and then the Welcome-screen is shown, and boot continues normally.

    I have tried to uninstall Bitdefender, no difference
    I have tried to disconnect all USB except mouse and keyboard, no difference.
    I have looked for new BIOS (there is none), new drivers for the complete PC, no difference.

    What can I do to track this error down? To me it looks like Windows is waiting for something, that after a while times out ... but what is it? And how do I find it?

    SystemSpecs is uptodate.

    Have you tried a "clean boot"?

    If that doesn't help and you have already disabled all the things you do not want then (and this will be more effort) you can download Windows Performance Recorder from here Windows Performance Recorder and run a boot cycle 3 times. Upload the generated .etl somewhere and I'll have a look.

    Using the guide from #2, I have found that it is something from Acronis backup "Trueimagebackup.exe" and "SunJavaUpdateSched" that has a conflict, if I deactivate either of these 2, then Windows boot up much faster!
    Thank you for your help :-)
