I have a Inspirion 15 5558,with i7, 8GB ram,1TB HDD,My average To reach the login screen was around 45 secs.
I was facing LCD issues, the technician came over and checked the LCD and pasted some stickers on i it so that it can be repaired later.
I found that its taking more than 4 minutes to reach the login screen.
When i contacted the technician he said it was an OS problem and that i should downgrade to 8 or 8.1
so if everyone can comment about their boot time it would be helpful in determining the problem.
" I found that its taking more than 4 minutes to reach the login screen ".
I like to suggest you launch "Startup Repair" in Advanced Startup:
A) Type settings in the (Cortana) search bar, Update & Security, and then Recovery
B) Click Advanced Startup, and then " Restart Now "
C) Troubleshoot, Advanced Options, and then Startup Repairs
I also like to suggest you check Startup in Task Manager.Please disable some of the programs that you don't want running in your startup.
A) Type Task Manager
B) Click Startup

Dell doesn't provide windows 8 drivers for your computer. Please click on the link below, stroll down to "Change OS", and then click on it. You'll see there aren't any drivers for windows 8.
