Slow startup after installing 20h2


Mikolaj R.


I have problem with startup times after updating latest update.


The startup goes from 30 sec to 5-10 minutes.

The cause of this is secondary drive with SMART errors reported. I know the drive have SMART errors but i intend to use it until it literal dies.

I proven it by rebooting the computer without the drive (takes ~30 sec, and with the drive 5+ minutes).

The problem was NOT existent on 2004

The system itself is on another drive that is fast and healthy. The computer have several drives connected, where all other are SMART healthy.

I know that recently Windows added SMART diagnostic and I suspect that this is the problem here, but i dont know how to verify that further.

How to make fast boots with the failing drive connected ?
