    20 second BIOS time.

    Old ECS board with a Phenom 2, X2 - 3.0GHz
    8GB of RAM.
    240GB SSD OCZ Agility 3

    Not sure why it takes this long to restart, it boots from off much quicker.

    It's because of the hybrid boot - fast startup functionality that was added to Win8:
    Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

    Restart is not affected and there you see the REAL (full) boot time.

    Embarrassed to post a new screenshot:

    Previously I got 45 seconds restart on dual core + 1.5GB RAM and 80GB IDE HDD drive, Win7 x64.

    Now Win8 x64 + UEFI and SATA HDD + 8 GB RAM gets 78 seconds.
    BIOS time is 5 seconds so the rest is... pretty unknown territory right now.

    It seems the preinstalled OEM OS is full of junk and I probably need some cleaning to do.
    I allready cleaned most of the startup items but that's not enough. I'll try to look carefully. Don't think a defrag will do much but it's on the to do list.

    HDD speed is what I expected to be but still... the new score is low.

    And without my external hard drive i get 30 second full restart. Mad how much an external device can slow a reboot.

    Sorry man.
    Something's wrong because 1 HDD (5300RPM) beats this.

    It can be the raid type (software raid?), too many redundancy. Or one drive may be down....

    Or maybe you got too much startup programs.

    The most important thing is that it works.

    SSDs in Raid is counterproductive - I think.
