I noticed over a month ago that my PC was taking longer to boot. Maybe 20-30 seconds instead of less than 10 seconds. I didn't think much of it since my computer was installing a lot of OS updates during that time frame. But it has gotten worse at almost 2 minutes.
According to Samsung Magician, my boot drive is perfectly healthy (Samsung 840 EVO). I've checked to make sure its firmware is updated, I've run a benchmark and performance optimization test and everything looks fine. Its current read/write is 532/524 out of the advertised 540/410.
Naturally my first thought was "why the hell is the write speed so high??".
I go to enable rapid mode only to find that the requirements check shows an X for the operating system and figure this must be the issue? I've just read that the 4.5 firmware has this issue with Windows 10.
