    DC53427HYE i5-3427U Faster Boot option in BIOS ?

    blueribb

      I run OpenELEC with a 60gb SSD and 4gb of RAM. It takes about 20 seconds to boot to Kodi's Home Screen. I guess about 5 seconds of that are for the NUC Welcome and BIOS option screen. Is there a setting in the BIOS to boot faster ?

          Hi Blueribb,

           

          It is possible to enable Fast Boot with the steps below.

          Get into the BIOS pressing F2 while starting the NUC up. Select Advanced tab>Boot>Boot Configuration and enable Fast Boot.

           

          If you want to disable Fast Boot without entering BIOS setup: Power down the system, then hold down the power button until the system beeps

           

          Regards,
          Miguel

            Hi Miguel and thanks for the reply. I could not find a tab called "Advanced". Here is what I did find :

             

            "Boot Tab"

            "Boot Configuration Tab"

             

            Fast Boot Category

            General Optimization (no check) ?

            USB Optimization (no check) ?

            Video Optimization (no check) ?

             

            UEFI Boot (checked) ?

            Legacy Boot (checked) ?

            Boot USB Devices First (no check) ?

            BIOS Setup Auto-Entry (no check) ?

             

            Boot Devices:

            USB Boot (checked) ?

            Boot to Optical Devices (checked) ?

            Boot to Network (checked) ?

             

            I put a check mark in "General Optimization" under Fast Boot which removed the first two checked items under "Boot Devices".

            I removed network boot under "Boot Devices"

            I left all others as they were.

            The NUC seems to boot faster now (by about 3-5 seconds)

             

            Are my settings OK ?

            Thanks in advance

              Hi blueribb,

               

              Your settings are correct. I am glad your system is booting faster now.
