Hi, my G752 take HDD times to boot, does anyone know any fixes that dont require a new ssd or replacing my 2.5" HDD. I've checked and everything it booting from the SSD. If you dont know would a new ssd fix it, if so I was thinking of this one: https://www.scan.co.uk/products/256gb-samsung-pm951-m2-(22x80)-pcie-30-(x4)-nvme-ssd-nand-flash-read-1000mb-s-write-280mb-s-250k-74k Thanks

What is your current configuration? Which G752 type do you own? I would go for a NVMe M.2 Samsung 950 Pro SSD. It's a bit speedier and has better warranty specs. The 1/2TB variant is also quicker than the 1/4TB variant. But also more expensive.

Have you update the bios to latest version? This solved the issues.

Mine is the G752VY with the 1tb hdd and the 512gb ssd.

I have bios version G752VY.208. If this isn't the right one would/how would you recommend upgrading?

Update BIOS to 213.
208 is not even available anymore.
Go to the link above, type in model, select drivers and tools then others from the drop down menu.
Download 213, extract it to a place you can find it.

From the same page navigate to you window version from the dropdown and download latest winflash under bios utilities.
Install the winflash

Start>all apps>ASUS>winflash

Launch, point it to where you extract the BIOS file and follow the prompts.
It will reboot, then you will see the flash utility launch, erasing old, loading new then reboot again.


Before you start any of this make note of your current BIOS settings.
After the flash if it doesnt reboot you may need to check the BIOS settings to make sure its all good.

Hi All,

Just bought a G752VM 2 days ago and already replaced the factory 1TB HDD with a Samsung 950 PRO M.2 PCIe x4. I removed the original 1TB HDD with the OS and was able to do a clean Windows install on the Samsung 950 via Windows 10 on a cd with the ACHI setting in Bios. Will reply on another thread on how this was done by a technician. I have already updated the G752VM Bios to 302 and installed all drivers. When I reboot it only takes 13 seconds which is perfect and shows that the 950 Pro is running smoothly. But if I shut down and power on it takes 50 seconds to boot up and I notice the the ROG logo comes up initially but there is no hard disk light at work and its stuck on that screen for at least 30 seconds before booting up quickly with the Samsung 950 Pro. My tech guy says it is an Asus Bios issue and there is nothing I can do about it until a new Bios update comes out. I already tried changing in Bios to fast boot, but boot times did not change. I also I read on another thread that for the G752VY it was resolved with a Bios update. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Cheers,

Lord

Fixed my slow boot issue by just cloning original 1TB HDD onto the Samsung 950 Pro. The fresh install of Win 10 onto 950 Pro via ACHI setting in BIOS is what caused all the problems. Now runs like a dream cold boot in 10 seconds! Current Bios is 302 :-)

Hi Lord, I have almost the same problem as you but I have the G752VL with a 1TB HDD. I replaced it with a Samsung 960 EVO 512GB SSD just recently. I cloned using Samsung Data Migration software then replaced the existing HDD. I have set the BIOS SATA setting from RAID to AHCI because RAID doesn't show the NVME settings in BIOS if RAID is set. The boot up works fine and am using the laptop right now. However my main beef is that it takes almost a minute (59 seconds) to do a cold boot. It is almost the same as the cold boot before but with the difference that I am using an SSD now. Based on observations, it seems to be taking its sweet time in the POST section of the boot (in the ROG logo) but once it has entered Windows, it is definitely zippier than when using the original HDD. Is this a BIOS firmware issue? By the way, I've updated the BIOS to the latest version 303 as of this writing and it is the same behavior; 59 seconds from cold boot. ASUS come on, please fix this as my other desktop which is like 4 years old boots up faster than this laptop. Can anyone chime in with regard to BIOS settings? Maybe I am missing something. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
