So, as mentioned before. I ordered 2 ASUS G752VY

Everything works perfect and the only problem is SLOW start when power button is pressed. Is it normal compared to you all?
on latest Bios.

After the power button pressed, i need to wait 5 to 6 second before the ROG Logo displayed on screen.
Compared to my old G750JZ and G751JY, only took 3+ second to complete boot into windows.

The problem same on my both G752VY.

Is fast boot Enabled in the Bios? Reboot the laptop and press F2 multiple times before you see the Asus ROG logo, this will get you into the Bios. Fast boot is under the "Boot" tab. If secure boot is disabled, that will slow the bootup process also.

The Bios initialization does seem to be slower on this model over previous models, but only by a second or 2. You mention you bought 2 machines, is it the same boot time on both or just one? Are their any peripherals plugged into the laptops? That can also slow boot times.

I've enabled fastboot. But every shutdown it will reset itself to disabled. All are connected to power cord.
both machine have same boot time one fresh windows.

Same issue I am having with my g752vy-rh71 except my boot time is near 1 minute. I am on the newest BIOS version 208 with 2x 950 PRo 256GB with 32GB Kingston Hyper-X DDR4 2400MHz
Prior to the update to the BIOS, boot times were on par with my G751.

G752VY-DH72
Didn't really pay much attention to it before I flashed to 208 and honestly didn't perceive any problems and just shut it down after some updates and finishing install of GTAV just to see what I got, 16 seconds from depressing the power button to log in screen then about 2 seconds from login to finished with AV up and all. Im still setting up as i just finished getting the 512GB 950 pro installed about 4 hours ago.

Is it not as fast on the boot? Maybe a few seconds but nothing I would call slow and a problem though.


EDIT

, just rolled it back to 206. 2 seconds to asus logo and 7 seconds to login. Dont know what the 208 Bios is doing to take a few more seconds but I still dont see it as a problem, especially when I compare it to the POS Dell they issused me for work that between the cheap hardware and all the crap and logger they have running on it takes every bit of 5 minutes between pusing the power button and being ready to actually use it.

If you want to roll back there is a trick to it . Winflah wont just let you and making a DOS disk is a PITA. I found this right here in another section, Credit to the OP and I can verify that it does work. Right after you finish the last cmd entry winflash will launch and it will let you roll back to an older version.


All you need to do is have Winflash installed and launch it through Command Prompt, Command Prompt can be found under Start Menu under Accessories
Now in Command Prompt navigate to where you have Winflash installed, for me i just entered " cd C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\WinFlash " with out the ""
Now simply enter "Winflash /nodate" without the ""

Are you setting up Raid 0 for The ssd? because i see no point if Raid 0 is not supported, getting 512GB 950 Pro is cheaper.

My G750 super fast, 3 second complete boot into usable windows. I wonder why newer model are slower . I think i will wait for new bios then, hopefully asus fix it.

I bought the laptop without an SSD and bought one 256GB from Newegg. Then I saw a deal from another online place for 20% off entire order and ordered another 256GB and 2x8GB of the hyper-x RAM. I was going to return the first one but would of been hit with a restocking fee of $29.50 so I kept it. If I can ever get Raid working on it I would use them both but 512GB for an OS is in excess.

Raid 0 will be supper fast. Asus Bios still very buggy now as i find out the raid drivers is actually there but bios unable to configure it. This is the problem lead to unable to install samsung nvme drivers and many more.
Asus need to do something by now.

The larger 512GB size also has better read and write times over the 256. Raid is not supported on these and honestly I cant see why it would be needed. I would rather have a little overhead then to have it packed too tight. When the OS and all my software is loaded I'm using every bit of 200GB and then some. Once you factor in the boot partition and a little overhead there isnt enough left on a 256GB disk, not for me anyhow.

Im running the 512GB just fine without Samsung NVMe drivers or Samsung magician and getting speeds comparable to the platforms that can load it. NVMe driver is not needed after Win 8.1. If you bought this machine or any other regardless of manufacturer with NVMe SSDs they dont come with magician installed nor do they come with the Samsung NVMe drivers.

Asus is not the only platform that wont allow installation of these. Its new and evolving technology and it will all get worked out in sooner or later. In the mean time Im enjoying exactly what I have that is blowing everything else out of the water.

This is the only Asus laptop I've had that had as many bugs in it and I have had their machines exclusively since the days of P4PE. I downgraded the Bios and the quickboot is now enabled so yea the 208 is screwed up. Boot times still are not fast but the laptop overall is. I am getting advertised speeds of the 950 and I have a 1TB Pro for data.

The 256 works great for me and still leaves room to breathe. I was close to purchasing a handful of the 512GB to test out in a datacenter. I just converted all but 4 servers to 850 Pro 1TB drives and have had very good results so far.
Six of the 512GB in a Raid 5 would be bliss. I see a new desktop for me in the future with a couple 950's!

Nothing wrong with what works for any one person. They are both great, the 512 just has a bit better performance, especially in the sequential write.

Why dont you try the new 211 first. Then if you are not happy with that there are directions posted here to roll back.

If you are complaining over 18 seconds to log in there is no BIOS update or roll back that is going to change that, pretty much par for these machines.
What this post was originally about was caused by messing with things they should not be messing with and having a 60 second + boot time. The machine this post was written about had to be RMA'd to fix a partially bricked BIOS.

15-20 seconds to log in is extremely normal. After you hit log in you are at the desktop and ready to go pretty much instantly which is pretty darn good IMO. You can go into services menu and make all the services a delayed start to get to the log in faster but that accompishes nothing in reality, simply an illusion as the services have to load sooner or later and while this will get your log in screen up faster it will make loading the desktop and services take longer and in the end you are still taking the same amount of time to be ready to actually use the machine. Depending on how fast you type your log in credential usually less than 30 seconds.

Any plans to fix it?. it's the same problem up to 214 Bios, do we really need to downgrade to 206. The problem is here for a long time already.

Hey Brother, You are quite late to the party........

What machine are you referring to. This thread like many others got hijacked by the same user/users with the introduction of other models into the discussion that makes it confusing.
There is no 214 BIOS for the machine being discussed, the G752VY. Last release was BIOS 213 of 4/28/16 which addressed pretty much all of the BIOS related issues with this machine.

I have the same problem with G752VT...but not always. I have bios 214 and for me take forever to start. Only power button, power, flight and numlock lights are open. This problem is when i make some changes in bios, or sometime when i install windows...after restart remain blank screen and i hold power button to shutdown but when i release the power button is open only with that lights open....and i wait, i wait (3 minutes...10 minutes). I play with power button until G752 will open normally. I don't know if have hardware problems or bios problems.

P.S I tried all bios versions but still have this problem.

Firstly please search out G752VT or make a new thread. When we go to mixing different models in the same conversation it takes about 3 posts before everyone gets confused as to exactly what machine is being discussed.
For your model the BIOS is up to 216.
From the sound of things you need to get the bios to where it should be then go back to the factory image and update it then leave it be. Its to be expected that things go awry when one continuously changes bios settings, reinstall the OS etc.

Yeah, my mistake...i have 216 bios version. This problem is from the begining when i bought this laptop and i tried all versions of bios. Same sh*t. And i don't doing anything wrong...just to update bios 205...and started problems. Thanks for warning...you can move these posts to the right section. :)

I had this problem too, go to this site:
http://www.asus.com/ROG-Republic-Of-Gamers/ROG-G752VY/HelpDesk_Download/
In the OS drop down select Others
Then use WinFlash, should already be on your laptop to set these bios as the new ones (you want bios v213)

Hope this helps

You are answering something that has long since been resolved and quoting a banned member.

For the G752VY these issues were resolved with BIOS 213.
