    Could be no problem at all.

    Ref: https://pcpartpicker.com/blog/5/ssd-vs-hdd-boot-time-comparison

    (boot time was 22 seconds)

    Having said that, enter the BIOS and disable all unused services and ports. Everything disabled is one less thing that has to be verified during post and have drivers installed when the OS loads.

    Aside from that, the OS and OS condition also play a part. Not all versions of Windows boot the same (ie: time it takes). And a fresh install of the OS is always faster than the OS after dozens of apps and games have been installed. Having devices connected to the PC (ie: external HDD's or thumbdrives) can affect boot time as well.

    And some/most of that stuff doesn't need to be loaded at startup. With the exception of items such as AV components or hardware drivers, everything else isn't needed.

    Most apps don't need a startup item to function properly. Steam, for example, I don't have in my startup. But I click on the Start icon to open Stream and it opens and works normally.

    And you for sure don't need any app running to check for updates. CCleaner has an interface which will show you all of the startup items: Ref: https://www.piriform.com/docs/cclea...for-mac/managing-programs-that-run-on-startup

    There are a few bios settings you might need to check/change;
    1 Since you have a M.2 drive, it should be installed in the M.2 2 slot and not the 1 slot. In addition, you can config this for 2x or 4x in the bios. 4x disables one of your sata ports so be sure you do not have a drive connected to the port that will be disabled
    2 You have a fast boot option that is under the boot section of the bios [must be in advanced mode] Be sure that is enabled
    3 Post delay time. You can select how many seconds POST is delayed
