Windows To Go - No Fast Boot Option?

Jun 18, 2014

Windows to go doesn't seem to have a Fast boot option -- Not a real issue since I use an SSD for this but just curious. I suppose if Windows to Go is being used on different computers and the idea is to use the external device totally then it obviously doesn't make sense to store a file on the Host PC's HDD.

Anyway two screenshots -- you can see the Windows to Go doesn't have a fast boot option. Ist screenshot is from Windows to Go -- both running Windows 8.1 enterprise update 1 x-64 on REAL (not Virtual) Machines.

Windows 8.1 Fast Start Up (hybrid Boot)

Sep 17, 2014

I recently installed windows 8.1 and there is a problem with the windows Fast Start up (hybrid boot) feature as sometimes it works and windows starts very fast and sometimes it doesn't starts fast but just take sometime to start as if I started from a cold boot. I tried everything from inside the windows to solve this problem but nothing worked

I read in some threads that this fast boot technology works by saving the system into a hibernation file in the system drive when you shutdown the PC and at boot Hybrid boot well just use this hibernation file to start up faster by loading some system related files from it.

So I thinks that sometimes it loads the information from the hibernation file to load the system fast and sometimes it doesn't load anything from the hibernation file and load as if it was starting on a cold boot.

Maintenance :: GRUB2 And Windows 8 Equals No Hibernation Nor Fast Boot-up

Oct 11, 2013

i have problem with my dualboot. When installing ubuntu 13.04 and window 8 along each other, windows 8 won't hybernate (screen just gets blank and lock itself), tha same with turning computer off (when fast bootup is enabled). When i recover mbr using bootrec.exe /fixmbr (basicly switch back from GRUB2 so i cannot boot into linux) everything works fine.

Deleted Fast Boot Options?

Sep 15, 2014

I accidentally deleted my Fast Boot boot options and when I enable it my laptop restarts and shows the BIOS, without booting into my system(s). However, when I enable CSM boot it gives me option of booting into my systems. I want to restore my Fast Boot options so my laptop boots up faster and basically because my laptop is made for Fast Boot.

Maintenance :: Fast Boot No Effect?

Sep 27, 2013

I have Asus Maximus V formula z77 with latest EUFI firmware, and EVGA GTX 680 classified with EUFI firmware. Bios is set to fast boot etc, and it is enabled in windows, but I'm seeing no difference from before. I was using boot racer and seeing 11-14 second windows load times with another 10-15 til desktop. Averaging around 28 second boot speeds, whether from a fast boot shut down or a restart. My OS drive is a Samsung 840 EVO 250GB.

My windows 7 booted faster on an OCZ Vertex 4 128GB.

Virtualization :: XP On VM On SSD - Fast Boot Less Than 2 Secs

Aug 1, 2014

I've now optimized my remaining Windows XP system --removed all the junk and duplicate programs which run on later versions of Windows so I've got a nice small tidy XP system -- basically Scanner (old canon photo scanner N1240), some VINYL editing and cutting software, OCR software, Minidisc software (still great for portable RECORDING !!) and an HP plotter and one or two odd programs. I don't need Photoshop or office any more in the XP system nor Ms Office, and I don't bother with the Internet on it either so no security problems there.

I've kept connectivity for printing (Epson 1400 printer) - the whole OS is 12 GB and it boots up in about 2 Secs (a VM running from a Linux host) --I've allocated it 1 GB - I'm sure I could run it in 768 MB too.

On my 8GB laptop it runs fine concurrently with a Windows 8.1 VM (allocated 4GB RAM for that) both on a Linux Host.

Not Able To Enter BIOS To Disable Fast Boot

Aug 21, 2013

I am using Windows 8 64 Bit and have lost the password for the Administrator Account (Local). I am only able to login using the Standard Account and unable to create any more admin accounts or make any changes, I am even unable to perform the Gateway Recovery as its asking for the Administrator Password. I even can't enter the BIOS to disable the Fast Boot or change the First Boot to USB so that I can use any other Image of Windows 8 to reinstall.

Setup Installation :: Windows Boot Manager - Deleted UEFI Boot Option?

Mar 24, 2014

After creating a UEFI bootable USB thumb drive with Rufus (using Windows 8.1 Enterprise ISO x64), for a Dell Optiplex 3010 (configured as UEFI only, no CSM, latest firmware version, Windows 8 installed), I didn't see a USB boot option, so I tried to add one manually. Unfortunately I erased the existing boot option (boot manager) by mistake. Although there were two boot options for PXE booting, the machine will not start anymore, even when there is an active WDS server on the network.

I also see Led's 2 and 3 lighting up, meaning according to the manual 'hardware ok but bios possibly damaged/corrupt'.

I understand I cannot start the machine from a bios boot disk because of GPT partitioning, and the UEFI USB boot disk I made might be corrupt (as it didn't show up as a boot option), however I don't understand why it won't boot from the PXE network card, as these boot options are still there.

Fast Boot Causes Black Screen After Loading Desktop?

Sep 15, 2014

For a few days I have been having some problems with my computer. Whenever I shutdown properly and then start again, the Desktop loads fine and after a few seconds of coming to the desktop. I see a black screen in front of me, I try to press num lock on and off to see if the system froze, it indeed froze. I disabled fastboot, after that even if I start after shutdown, it boots fine.

If I restart, it boots fine. Not sure why as my system should be fully compatible with fast boot. Here is my system specs, everything is updated as of posting:

MSI Z87 - G43 Gaming Motherboard with latest BIOS
Sapphire TriX R9 290 OC
Samsung 250GB 840 EVO

Setup Installation :: Add Boot Option After Windows 8 Install?

Jan 15, 2013

I've seen all the tips on setting up a dual boot while installing Win 8 with an existing win 7 installation but I can't find any way to add a boot option AFTER installing win 8.I have an image of win 7 that I want to put on another hard drive and then be able to dual boot either 8 or 7.

I tried using easybcd and it appeared to save the entry but it wasn't there when I booted up.

On a side note I also can't seem to change the timeout value before it boots. It always reverts to 30 seconds. I tried msconfig with the same results.

I do have an added boot menu for a recovery via Farstone recovery. It added it to the win 8 boot menu so it must be possible to add the win 7 somehow.

How To Restore 8.1 Without USB Boot Option

May 3, 2014


Win 8.1 USB Recovery Drive
Win 8.1 Full Install Retail 64 bit DVD
Legacy BIOS that does not offer USB in Boot Priority
Internal DVD
USB ports

Question: What would be a secure plan to be able to restore a new disk to a near-current state?

I'm thinking a second HDD and something like Acronis and bypass the MS backup tools. Or perhaps boot from the install DVD and use Macrium Reflect.

Setup Installation :: Remove Ubuntu Boot Option From OS List

Feb 2, 2013

I had ubuntu within my windows 7 earlier. Later when i installed windows 8, i formatted the partition ( E: ) in which ubuntu was installed, since the wubi uninstaller was not working. Still when i start my system, it shows ubuntu listed in the boot list. I tried to load it once. It gave an error. There is no error when i select the default windows 8.

Now i checked the boot option in the msconfig as per the thread, but only windows 8 is listed there, no ubuntu. But still it is listed in the boot menu. I tried the disk manager, the only partition without NTFS file system is the one with status "healthy (OEM partition)". I dont know whether its a ubuntu partition. And there is no option to delete it also. No other ubuntu partition. I want to remove the ubuntu boot option from my os list. How to do it?

Jan 24, 2014

My wife has a new Asus X750j Laptop.

I've spent the last day and a half setting it up.Now I want to make a system image of the C: drive using Paragon.

I do this from a bootable DVD, but it isn't set to boot to the DVD first in the boot order.

My computer which has an ASUS motherboard, shows a message when I boot, saying select "Delete" to boot into the UEFI Bios.

But I can't seem to get either a boot menu of the bios option on the laptop.

Maintenance :: Troubleshoot Option Under Advanced Startup Option Missing

Oct 23, 2013

The Troubleshoot icon that should be under the 'Advanced Startup' Option is missing. System is a new Dell Latitude 10 ST2 Tablet running Windows 8. Have access to 9 other identical tablets, all configured the same and they all have the Troubleshoot Option. Have tried multiple methods of getting to "Advanced Startup" display (including Safe mode, 'shutdown /r /o', etc.), but all result in only having the 'Continue', 'Use a Device', and 'Turn Off your PC' options - No Troubleshoot. Other than missing this icon, system is working fine. Shy of wiping the disk and starting over.

Updates :: No Boot After Updates - System Restore Only Option Available?

Aug 19, 2013

I have had to system restore 3 or 4 times in the last week or so as Windows 8 refuses to boot after installing the latest updates discovered from the last couple of weeks (though some are from December 2012)

I have unchecked all the current updates and have decided against installing them as they seem to be preventing Windows from booting.

Pattern - "Restart to install updates"

Restart locks on the start screen - Restart again and locks again (repeat this process 3x)

"Windows is automatically repairing..." - Fails

"Windows must restore settings to a previous time..." - Usually succeeds, sometimes fails.

Then I can get back into Windows.

As soon as I install these updates, I won't get back into Windows until I system restore since before the updates and my build won't remain stable unless I prevent Windows from installing these updates.What could be going on?

They are quite big updates (totalling ~740mb and have all been discovered in the last week or so though some date back to late last year)

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 With Fast Startup Enabled Hangs Occasionally?

Oct 24, 2013

I'm not sure what's exactly the problem but sometimes Windows 8.1 hangs at the Windows logo at boot with Fast Startup enabled on a mSATA SSD with my Lenovo Y570 laptop.

My laptop does not support Secure Boot/GPT or UEFI, so I'm really unsure if that's the problem.

Once I disable Fast Startup the boot process never hangs ever but it makes my bootup time slightly slower.
