Not really asking any question but, rather, putting out an observation.

I'm running a MacBook Air 2017 in which I replaced the original 128GB SSD with a 480GB SSD to give me decent room to run MacOS Big Surand Windows along with room for a data partition. Not that I think it pertinent but here is the drive setup; these numbers are rounded off:
  • 140GB MacOS Big Sur.
  • 140GB Windows 10.
  • 200GB data.
Everything is fine and working well.

What I don't get is that the Windows side of the system will boot MUCH quicker than the Apple side. I mean REALLY quicker such as in Windows booting in 1/4 to 1/3 the time that it takes the Apple side. I'm using the Apple's built in boot manager called Boot Camp.

I would just think that, with it being an Apple system, that the Apple side would tend to boot quicker but it isn't even close. :dunno:

I think it has much to do with the effort Microsoft put into improving boot times for Windows 10. It may be that Apple hasn't put in that effort.

Could be but I also think that part of it MAY be Intel. Let's face it, Windows systems are Intel's biggest client. They MAY optimize their chips in the direction of Windows. :dunno:
