    Like others have stated, my external hard drive adds a considerable amount but this isn't too bad..

    Mark, those SSDs have adorable prices these days. Maybe time to add one. Hopefully Australia followed the trend.

    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.
    I have almost none startup programs...
    in Atto Benchmark i get around 1GBs read and write speed...
    I had the same setup in Win7 and then restart took only around 10 sek.. in Win8 its 67... -.-

    Then it must be the Start Screen:
    I noticed this on my machine, I had to manually go to the desktop to let the restart report show.
    This got me about 15 seconds until I decided to do myself...

    I hope the restart counter we use doesn't record the time till we get to desktop because then we all get higher scores than in Win7. Basically you can stay 1hour in start screen and then your score is 1hour even with RAID7 SSD or magnetic RAM.

    I'll see if I can score better than my last attempt, following what I said.

    I clicked on Desktop the same second as the Start screen showed up... so that just added maximum 1 sec to my report...

    Quoting myself... Wow.

    Forget what I said in my initial post. It seems to be the other way around.
    I've waited 2 minutes in start screen and then went to desktop, the report was already done and I got this:

    Tried again but went directly to desktop and what do you expect: 81 seconds!

    So next time don't go directly to desktop and it may save a couple of seconds, at least on slow HDD's like mine.

    Case closed.

    Thanks

    You mean as an external backup? I'd need at least 2x 512GB drives which is not very economical.

    A bit of tweaking got me 6 sec better

    No, I mean for the OS to reside in the PC.

    Very good number. But even after 4 years, this is not a low end computer by any means. I could only manage slightly better on a very recent system with a M4.
