I am trying to diagnose the problems I've been having with boot-up on my machine. The system drive is an SSD, so it should be fairly quick. However there is one moment, right after the "Welcome" wheel where I get the mouse and a black screen for a very long time.
Now you can find the boot logs here: 18.104.22.168/z (BootCKCL.etl file, opens with windows performance toolkit)
I did several boot-ups and the results are always the same. In this particular one at about the 0:36 sec mark you'll notice this wide gap where nothing happens for about a minute.
It also doesn't seem to be related to any of the processes prior to the gap(tried to disable those). I have no idea what the bottleneck is and don't even know where to start.
P.S. I also tried the suggestion from one of the other threads here. There was a suggestion to run
xperf -start perf!GeneralProfiles.InBuffer && timeout -1 && xperf -stop perf!GeneralProfiles.InBuffer myTrace.etl
But that gave me an error message:
xperf: error: Failed to start profile: Cannot create a file when that file already exists. (0x800700b7).
Which I couldn't figure out how to fix.
