    I recently put Windows 8.1 Pro on my mid 2012 MBP 15". It has 16 MB RAM and a Crucial M500 SSD. Yet it boots slower than a similar Window 8.1 Pro installation running under Parallels Desktop 9. It boots slower than Mavericks 10.9.1. Even the Chrome browser logs before loading.

    Yet I am able to do some very CPU/disk intensive stuff, such as an ASP.NET based CMS, Sitefinity, that I've seen bring other development boxes to their knees. Doubt I could do that in my PD9 VM!

    Any ideas?

    I was hoping for some clues. I like my Boot Camp Windows 8.1 Pro installation. It is solid, yet my similar Parallels Desktop 9 installation is definitely snappier.

    Perhaps there are drivers timing out?

    Seemed to have fixed my problem. I went to the Control Panel to remove Boot Camp Services. Oddly there is no option to uninstall, but there is an option to repair. Selecting the repair option has eliminated the load time of my apps.
