I have a desktop and laptop with fresh installs of windows 8. The desktop boots much slower(and possibly slower in general). The laptop boots up in about 10 seconds to win8 desktop(the post process is also much faster). The desktop takes about a minute or so to boot up.
Here are some screen shots of CPU-Z. The desktop should be much more powerful. The only problem is the desktop uses HD's that run at 5200 RPM's while the laptop runs at 7200. Otherwise the desktop is better in every spec as far as I can tell. They run the exact same OS with the exact same setup(Fresh, no apps installed).
Any ideas why the desktop is so slow or potentially how to diagnose it?
