    Takes some time, just leave it for a bit and it will suss itself out. Also try coming BACK to Start from another app (if you can get to one).

    I have also found that, occasionally upon restarting the phone, it takes a fairly long time (3+ minutes) for the Start screen to show. I assume that it's a defect that they're working on finding and fixing.

    yes, i too have this loading start screen problem, that is very annoying. so,what i did is let the start screen with basic tiles with minimum operations. And thats lead to very shorter loading time( for me it was 10-15 minutes) but now it only takes 3-4 minutes.

    And specially do not set fancy wallpapers and bright colors.

    I have found another way if you want a temporary solution to sort the loading problem you need to press and hold the Cortana (search button) wait for the listening prompt and press the back button and repeat all this two or three times, this works every time so far, but when you reboot you will need to repeat this all over again.

    1. press and hold the Cortana (search) button when the screen is blank or says loading...
    2. wait for the listening prompt
    3. press the back button until you get back to your loading/blank screen
    4. repeat this two or three times in succession

    Works every time for me. Good Luck
