1. First off all 26 second from pressing the power button is not so bed. take into consideration that about 8 seconds pas, till the windows starts booting (you can see the swinging circle if you are using Windows 10).
2. Secondary, you can improve this situation and shorten the total boot time by about 10 seconds, by performing the following settings in BIOS:
2.1 Uncheck of the Legacy Boot.
2.2 Uncheck the Network boot.

Yes, I was about to say that PXE boot or Network boot will increase boot time.
Windows will save an image of your loaded kernel and drivers in something called the hiberfile. This way, when the system boots up again, it simply reloads this file, making boot times much faster. To enable this, follow these steps:
Search for and open “Power options” in the Start Menu.
Click “Choose what the power buttons do” on the left side of the window.
Click “Change settings that are currently unavailable.”
Under “Shutdown settings” make sure “Turn on fast startup” is enabled.
As I've advised you, unchecking the Ethernet boot and legacy Bios will shorten the boot time by about 10 seconds. So, now you have 18 seconds boot time instead of 26 seconds before. Still I thing that Intel can improve this situation. Boot Bios part is to long (about 10 sec). Probably the Power Up Bit tests are to long and can be optimized. Also adding in Bios a possibility for user to skip some test (like for example long memory test), will be welcomed. If memory failure is suspected, user will be able to check on this test again.
I'm waiting for such update from Intel.
