    Why does it take 25 seconds to boot VROC?


      When loading Windows, VROC has irregular boot times, minimum 23 seconds, IF it boots.

      At times, when hitting shut down, it will reboot instead,

      sometimes it will not shut down at all.

      With 960 EVO as boot drive, 2 seconds boot time and shut down.

      Above is with the 4 Optane drives in software RAID0 for storage.


      System configuration:


      ASrock X299 Taichi XE motherboard

      i9 7900X CPU

      64GB DDR4 2666 Crucial memory

      EVGA 1080ti SC2 Hybrid graphics

      4 x 280GB 900P Optane U.2 to M.2 drives

      Asus Hyper M.2 x 16 AIC

      Asrock Thunderbolt 3 AIC

      Intel VROCISSDMOD key

      Corsair 1000W Platinum PS

      Corsair 280mm AIO

      15 total fans on system

      Hottest it gets benchmarking is 72c


      I have an open ticket with no resolution.


      One time I thought it was Corsair link, but that was not it.

      The speed of the system is amazing, on Optane Q1T1 in excess of 200 MBPS.

      In software raid as storage, in excess of 300 MBPS.

      But it won't boot quickly in VROC on Optane,

      the fastest drive on the planet.
