Yesterday shutted down my main desktop pc and after starting it, I noticed the Windows 7 x64 SP1 took unusually long time to load from 'Welcome' screen to desktop. Yes, I was a witness of a ~30min loading glory
Type of BSOL - black screen with mouse pointer and everything working, but no desktop on the satellite images
Machine specs are good enough (I think) - 8c/16t Xeon, 16GB RAM, 2xSSDs for OS, 2xHDDs for storage
Tried everything - disabled all non-MS services, added new admin/normal accounts, stopped all systray apps manually, rechecked SSD/HHD cables, no SSD/HDD errors, reswapped memory/memtested it, removed all currently installed drivers ... It just continues to load after ~30min. After loading it's ok, and it's even ok DURING the limbo - can start whatever game/app I choose through Task Manager>New Task(Run)
Any ideas to fix it or to let it go and upgrade to 8.1/10 ?
Edit: There's something strange in this situation - after loading my 'Quick Launch' all icons on it just warped into the eternity
