I am setting up a new LENOVO 82H9 IdeaPad 3 17ITL6  running Windows 10 at current level.  A Belarc Advisor profile for the machine is below.

It takes 2 minutes 12 seconds to boot from when I push the on/off button to when I can put in a user password that takes me to the desktop. Otherwise it's two plus minutes of that little circle going around. This seems excessive even for the older 1TB mechanical sata drive the computer came with.
Secondly, whenever I boot from a usb drive, whatever program I use cannot locate any other drives in the computer. For instance, if I boot from partition master or an Acronis boot flash drive or even a Windows creator's update, none of these programs see any other drive except the flash drive it booted from.
I sent the laptop back to the Lenovo depot with explicit instructions about what needed to be fixed.  They sent it back and nothing is different.  I need a reality check.  Even with a mechanical hard drive it should take less than 2 minutes and 12 seconds to boot up.  Secondly, I should be able to boot from a flash drive and find other drives that show up in the bios as being there. Agreed?  
I would appreciate your opinions because I will be calling up Lenovo support shortly to give them a piece of my mind.  I have a client waiting for this computer, I sent it into their depot and I don't think they worked on it at all.
