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.
||If BIOS settings changes results in poor performance, intermittent issues, or any other issue, reset the desktop board to the default values:
- Press F2 during boot to enter the BIOS setup.
- Press F9 to set defaults.
- Press F10 to save and exit.
If the system locks or does not boot after making BIOS settings changes, do a BIOS recovery.
