I have an AMD system, and it takes a really long time to boot (over a minute) or resume from hibernate (beyond five minutes!). I've uploaded the related event viewer logs here
. I have performed SSD optimisation (TRIM, no pagefile, no Superfetch, etc), tried upgrading/downgrading AMD drivers, including a beta RC (14.7), to no avail.
I had an HDD up to two days ago, on which I would have the long hibernate resume problem too - the logo animation is really slow
, like 0.5 fps - but after a lot of searching online and meddling around, including installing the beta driver, it was fixed. Yesterday I bought an SSD and cloned the C:\ drive, and got it working after a bit of frustration (fixmbr, fixboot), only to see that even the boot to Windows log-on screen actually takes quite a while! After signing in it doesn't even take 10 seconds for the desktop to finish loading. The hibernate issue was also back with a bang, and this time none of the tweaks worked, some of which include manually extracting atikmdag.sys from the installer package and pasting it in system32/drivers, switching to the default MS AHCI controller, uninstalling all unnecessary AMD drivers (which resulted in USB keyboard/mouse not being detected and me having to remote desktop onto the PC to get that working again), etc.
I'm officially out of ideas - would an upgrade to Windows 8.1 fix it? If not, could I downgrade back to 7 (not a big fan of 8)? If there's any additional data I can provide, do let me know. Thanks in advance for anyone who helps!
