Booting with SSD - BIOS part

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey,

This could also go in the motherboard section, if that's more appropriate.

When I got my SSD I naturally had to change loads of BIOS stuff and this included turning on an AHCI BIOS from Intel. I don't know much about BIOS and Motherboards so please excuse me if I'm calling it the wrong thing.

Anyway - when I boot, it will go to this thing and it will take exactly 10 seconds of "Please wait" with a "." being added to a line for every second. Then there's a list of my devices (there's "empty ones" in between some things) my DVD Drive, HDD and SSD. Then it moves on to the next part.

So my question is: Can this be sped up? I know it's required for the SSD to work properly, but it's exactly 10 seconds each time and there's even a "10" in the top right corner (though this fluctuates to something like 16 when the devices are listed). Is it a timer? Lee-way for recognition of a new device? Can it be shortened to say, 3 seconds?

Like I said I don't know much about these things so I could be sounding like a boot time speed freak and it can't be done, it's literally the slowest section of my boot lol = and it doesn't seem to be doing anything in its 10 seconds of dead time.

Thanks!

Only thing you can really do is flash your motherboard with the latest bios hoping the manufacturer has sped up the process. You could try making sure quick boot is enabled but that usually only applies to post.

Edit: I notice my raid check (pretty much the same thing as ACHI Check) goes faster when I have my cpu clock speed higher. Might be in my head but I swear it does....er maybe its my CPU/NB clock.
