Boot logo shows twice on starts up

My Dell Inspiron 15 7537 need to boot twice to have a normal starts up, in order words, the Dell boot logo appears twice when I powers up my laptop.

The first time when the boot logo shows, it takes about 5~6 seconds to load, then turns to a black screen for half a second, after that the boot logo shows again, appeared for half a second and then get into Windows immediately. It doesn't seems to be normal but the boot time is about 16 seconds in total, I am not sure what would cause this issue happen.

I was assuming this may related to system that cannot find a boot disk on first boot so I went into the boot list option in bios settings to see is there anything that I can change but I only see two boot option which is UEFI and Legacy. I had also made a clean Windows install on my SSD after I clone all my data from the original laptop HDD.

How can I solve this problem ? the operating system installed in my laptop is Windows 10 and using Crucial MX200 500GB

Thank you,

More about boot logo shows starts
  1. With Windows 8+ OEMS change their Boot logo from the standard Windows boot logo so what is really happening is the first one is the BIOS logo, and the second is the now changed Windows Boot logo to the Dell logo. ALL OEMS does this now. Dell, HP, Acer, ASUS, Etc. Unless you wipe and reinstall windows clean from a Windows 10 install disk or USB drive it will always show this for windows boot screen.

    It's Normal, don't worry or stress about it.

    16 seconds for SSD sounds about right to me. Unless you have Fast boot enabled and other options 16 is pretty quick. A lot of the time POST (Power on Self Test) when the first Dell Logo comes up there is usually nothing you can do to make that any faster so that 5-6 seconds you can't really count for SSD boot up which then gives you a time of 10 seconds which is pretty damn fast comapared to any normal spinning drive. You can go into BIOS and maybe set for like Boot Up to only your SSD drive and uncheck/Disable other boot devices and if you ever needed to boot from other devices you can just hi F12 when the PC first starts up. That is about it.
