Speeding up boot time

Check the following tips to speed up the boot time of your computer:

  • If your desktop board supports Fast Boot, consider optimizing the boot process with it.
  • Boot > Boot Device Priority menu. Set the hard drive as the first boot device in the boot order in the BIOS setup.
  • Advanced > Drive Configuration menu. Disable Hard Disk Pre-Delay in the BIOS Setup.
  • Disable system functions and features if you do not need them. Examples include:
    • Advanced > USB Configuration. Legacy USB. Note that this must be enabled if you use a USB keyboard or USB mouse outside the Windows* environment.
    • Advanced > Peripheral Configuration menu. Disable Unused I/O ports, such as serial, parallel and IEEE-1394 ports.
    • Advanced > Event Log Configuration menu. Disable Event logging.
Note If BIOS settings changes results in poor performance, intermittent issues, or any other issue, reset the desktop board to the default values:
  1. Press F2 during boot to enter the BIOS setup.
  2. Press F9 to set defaults.
  3. Press F10 to save and exit.

If the system locks or does not boot after making BIOS settings changes, do a BIOS recovery.
