I have quite a reasonably spec'd machine:
- i7-2600k @4Ghz
- OCZ Velocity 3 ssd
- 1tb cavier black hdd
The 'welcome' logon screen takes ~30sec to finish and bring me to desktop and it should be much faster than that. Booting to the login screen is faster than this.
Windows 7 64bit installed on the ssd, which is the boot drive. Users folder for Downloads has been redirected to the 1tb hdd. Minimal to no startup programs (brand new machine)
What it's not:
It is not the desktop background bug, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977346
What I think it has to do with:
The user folder redirection, however for the life of my searching all I come up with are domain admins having issues with their user folder redirection, but these are for a remote machine, not a separate drive.
So I'm sure I'm not the first win7 64bit user who has the os on a ssd and has redirected one or more of the users folders to a hdd. Any asasist, or diagnosing tools would be great.
