    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.

    So I would like to hear some thoughts on what could be causing this problem as I have tried a lot of solutions but nothing seems to be working. And also I would like to know what's causing this problem is it windows or bios related issue.

    Thanks

    I actually checked the event log file after each start up and I figured out that when the windows starts fast there will not be any errors regarding the problem, but when the windows boots slowly I can see that there is some errors regarding windows shutdown and start up and which is as follows



    1- Windows failed fast start up with error status 0xC00000D4.



    2- The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.



    And for the second error I'm sure that when I powered off the PC it powered off correctly and without any errors



    So what exactly could be causing these errors and how can I solve it, any ideas.

    Maybe try running chkdsk on the next reboot.

    • If your using the Metro/Modern interface type in cmd.
    • A list containing Command Prompt will appear.
    • Right mouse click on the Command Prompt and Select "Run as Administrator"
    • Type in the following chkdsk /r /f
    • Reboot your computer. On the restart chkdsk will check the hard disk for errors

    Event Viewer
    1. Press the Windows Key + R and type in eventvwr
    2. In Event Viewer click on Windows Logs -> Application.
    3. Right click on "Application" and select "Find"
    4. Type in "chkdsk" (without the quotes)
    5. When it finds the event, right click on the event and select Copy -> "Copy Details as Text" and paste it to the forum.

    - I just figured it out right now, I went to the bios and disabled all the hdd drives that I have which are:



    1- 2 x 2tb in RAID0

    2- 1 x 750gb sshd



    - And after that I was just left with my msata ssd which had windows 8.1 installed in it and then I did about 10 shutdows and startups and yes the problem is gone and it's starting up and shuting down even faster than before.



    - Right now I can assure that this problem is caused by the other HDD's which are installed in the laptop.



    - Also I think that according to the error I mentioned before which says (The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly) it means that when the system shuts down it dosen't close and shut down everything properly including programs and HDD and which in the long run could affect HDD.



    So any suggestions on how I can overcome this problem with offcourse enabling back my HDD.
