The sticky in this forum needs to be updated.
Windows 8 (or 10) boot problems ? Please read this before posting
The solution is to enter the Control Panel > Power Options, reveal the "currently unavailable" settings and choose "what the power button does"
At the bottom of the page remove the tick from "turn on fast startup"​

Win8.1
Control Panel
> Power Options,
> Choose what the power button does
> Change settings that are currently unavailable
There is no "turn on fast startup" option.
Or what am I doing wrong??
Thanks

It should also read "Shut down". (As distinct from the "Sleep" or "Hibernate" options, which will not allow Fast Startup.

That section may be off screen for you, scroll down to Shutdown Settings.

Thank you Peter.
I use W8 and 10 so infrequently (just to apply monthly patches), I hadn't even noticed the slight difference even though I'd removed fast-start from both.

Me too Terry, I had to look twice to be sure.

You can check to see whether your Windows 8 system is using fast startup by going to the Control Panel, opening Power Options and clicking onChoose what the power button does.
