This worked for me. Have an i5 Haswell with 128GB SSD for boot connected to an external raid 5 with 4 x 3TB hard drives. It would take almost 2 minutes to boot into Windows with the Windows logo showing the entire time. When I disconnected the external storage boot times dropped to 15 seconds.

System protection was already turned off for the external storage but I went ahead and deleted any restore points. This took awhile and I left it working over night. Woke up the next morning and rebooted. 15 second boot with external storage connected!

Thanks for the very helpful tip.

After replacing a 1TB disk with a 3TB (red wd) i ran into very similar problems. Fixed it by running Chkdsk in cmd.exe as admin, Standard chkdsk could not solve it. It took all day, but booting is back to normal speed. My issue was with Bitmap error.
