I've got three (3) identical pc's: Acer Veriton M4630G-i7477X
each with 32GB ram. Business level pc's.

Two of them reboot in about 35-40 sec's.

The third one takes about 3.5 min's to reboot.

When it starts booting up, I get the attached screenshot.

This pc just came back from Acer for a bad HDD; it was still under warranty.

Acer sent it back with its original configuration and installed a new HDD;
the original had a bad sector.

Anyone have any idea why this one pc is taking so long to boot?

Many thanks!

Sounds like time to contact Acer support...before fiddling with it, IMO.


If I had to guess...I would go in the direction of examining the boot preferences.  Perhaps it's trying a network boot, based on the manner in which the O/S was installed and current boot options in the BIOS.

@ hamluis




I changed the boot order and that has worked a wonder!


BTW: how do I change the original pic I attached to my post?

Can I delete it?

Can I swap it for another pic?
