You're welcome! Glad to help. Interesting. I've found the Win10 Tech preview versions to be just the opposite; blazing fast. On my 8 year old test PC (Dell Dimension E520), it went from like 4 minutes boot time (power on to Internet browser home page), to under 2 minutes!! This was consistant from test builds of Win10 from Sep.2014 to Apr. 2015. So, I guess it's relative. If you have a bunch of junkware or malware (viruses) floating around on your Win7 prior to the upgrade, that might be affecting the boot time. Have you actually timed it: in minutes & seconds?? Modern computers built 2009 better darn well have a boot time less than 5 min. or they need servicing!! Some people feel that 3 min. or 4 min. is hideously slow on Win7 or Win8 and that is dramatically improved by upgrading to 10. It's all relative. Many folks on the forums I visit seem to feel that 3 min. is really slow if they have a newer computer (say Win8/8.1) that's much faster.
I might suggest you download malwarebytes free from malwarebytes.com and scan for spyware viruses, and download free JRT (Junkware Removal Tool) to get rid of your junkware. Retest your boot time with a stopwatch and see if you can improve it. Most of the computers I get from Customers with Win7 or Win8/8.1 I'm able to get under 3 min. 2 min. is a good goal, but that varies a whole lot from computer to computer. For example, last week, I was able to get a Win8.1 ASUS laptop to get under 1 min. boot time. Very zippy. The Win10 TP's are from just under 1 min. to about 2 min. tops.
Best of luck and look forward to hearing back from you.
