It sounds just like his and the long startup has been an issue since day one. Unless your boot time is over 8 minutes I think you have a fast one.
I'm Using ACER Aspire ONE 722 ( CPU- AMD Dual core processor C 60) with Windows7 starter OS. I'm facing long time during booting after proving supervisor password. The windows diagnostics has referred me two types of problem-
1. Drivers causing windows to standby or hibernate slowly- Atheros L1c- PCI-E Gigabit Ether net controller.
2. Drivers causing windows to resume slowly-
(a) AMD Multivendor Miniport Driver ( file name- atikmpag.sys) Device- SD storage
(b) Windows driver mode foundation- User-mode driver framework reflector ( file name-WUDFRd.sys)
(c) Windows mode driver foundation ( filename-WUDFRd.sys) Device- Transend
Please help me to get rid of this problem. Each time I have restore my system to some previous date and the problem is solved for 5-6 Days, then again the problem of booting starts.
