It represents the time from when Windows considers boot to start to the point where user can login to device.

If device boot time is more than twice the average boot time of the same type devices in environment then this alert is shown.

How should I react?

If your Windows 10 PC is booting slowly, there might be problems with your hardware or software. Use the Windows 10 Startup Manager to disable the apps that might cause the Windows 10 slow startup issues. Updating BIOS might solve the slow boot problem. GPU drivers should also be up to date.

In the Active Directory environment, if synchronous Group Policy processing is enabled make sure that the GPOs are processed in the timely manner.

You can troubleshoot and trace boot performance issues with Windows Performance Toolkit (xperf) that can reveal in detail what part of the boot process is taking most of the time.
