Windows 10 Ventoy VHD Slow Bootup


Senior Member
I created a Windows 10 install in a VHD file using VirtualBox to create the Windows 10 VHD and put it on a external USB Harddrive which has Ventoy flashed on it using the Ventoy Windows VHD plugin.

And it works great, good performance even for gaming however the only downside is that around 5-10 minutes to fully boot up. Is there anything one can do about this or is this just a limitation of running Windows 10 inside a VHD file.
