    Default Start-up in Windows 10 Pro

    I installed Windows 10 Pro on my HP laptop recently, and the start-up was not as clean as you would find in Windows 7 - press the power button and you wait for a minute or so until the desktop is seen, and with sound etc.

    But this Windows 10 Pro when you press the power button, what comes on is this:
    "Press ESC key for start-up menu" and when I do that, it comes back on a second time: "Press ESC key for start-up menu" and when I do that for a second time and wait, I see all the F's in the start-up menu - F1, F2, F7,F9,F10, F12, and "ENTER" to continue, and when I do that, and wait it will now proceed to start-up.

    I understand Windows 11 has the same start-up issue.

    How can I disable all these long drawn-out information on start-up, and, like in Windows 7, press the power button and wait until I hear the desktop theme come on.

    By the way, the start-up sound in Windows 10 is disabled for some strange reason, but there is a way to get around that.

    First off, how old is the laptop? Does it have a BIOS screen or a UEFI screen? during the post on start up?

    Here are some suggestions on this problem...

    Code:
    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/21284-enable-disable-fast-boot-uefi-firmware-settings-windows.html
    This would check if you have that option, or enable fast boot in the laptops BIOS or UEFI settings. (if they are there)

    And this..

    Code:
    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4189-turn-off-fast-startup-windows-10-a.html
    This would set it up in the windows platform.

    Probably the correct GPU drivers are missing, W10 needs an onboard graphics card driver of DirectX 9 or later and with a WDDM 1.0 driver installed on top of that.

    Also W10 is a CPU and ram hog, if your CPU is too slow (under a gigahertz) and you don't have at least 1 GB of free ram, it will be snail speed at best.
