I actually followed your guide to a T, and I did the boot/services tweaks. To be completely honest, I copied my image from my last SSD. I really should just wipe it and reinstall a fresh install of Win7.
That shouldn't make a difference. And that's not a link to my guide. My guide doesn't cover why some peoples boot times are longer/delayed.

If you have any USB devices such as an external drive or web cam or wifi dongle or soemthing that can lengthen boot as windows likes to get hung up on USB devices for some reason.

Also, under MSConfig disable everything at boot. There most likely is a program causing the hang.

Also, you do have it auto log on/sign you in right? You don't have a user password? If you do it also counts the time it takes for the password to be put in.

Nope no password. also disable the splash screen. I will disable all the startup programs via msconfig.

Goddamn, I disconnected my 1TB HDD tonight but left the SSD connected and I got a disk failure message during boot. It seems windows somehow installed a 100mb system reserved partition to my 1TB HDD instead of the SSD, and that my HDD starts the boot process and then the SSD takes over. That would account for the SSD not working in the other sata ports, because I'd also disconnected the HDD last night which was needed for starting the bootup. That means I have to start all over, erasing everything, reinstalling windows, windows updates and SP1 again, etc.

I'm going to delete the HDD partition then disconnect the HDD before installing windows to the SSD again. I'm guessing the SSD should work in port 0 then.

This is how to fix that. You won't have a system reserve after the process. Not really needed anyways. thumb.gif


Remove system reserve partition:
  1. Boot from your installation or repair disc.
  2. When you get to the language screen, press Shift+F10.
  3. Type diskpart, Enter
  4. Type list disk, Enter after diskpart is loaded
  5. Type select disk X (where X is your drive with the System reserve partition on it), Enter
  6. Type list partition, Enter
  7. Type select partition X (where X is your System reserve partition), Enter
  8. Type delete partition override, Enter
  9. Type list disk, Enter
  10. Type select disk X (where X is your OS drive), Enter
  11. Type list partition, Enter
  12. Type select partition X (where X is your OS partition), Enter
  13. Type active, Enter
  14. Close the command prompt

We have deleted the partition, and Windows will be unable to boot at this point. Now it is time to write a new boot loader and BCD to the Windows partition.

Now shut down, unplug any secondary drives, boot up and run start up repair up to 3 times.

If startup repair does not work follow this: (link)

In CMD type:
  1. bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup, Enter
  2. c:, Enter
  3. cd boot, Enter
  4. attrib bcd -s -h -r, Enter
  5. ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old, Enter
  6. bootrec /RebuildBcd, Enter

I knew I wasn't in Kansas anymore when I installed Win 7 from a bootable USB flash drive and it took around 8 minutes!
Here's my first AS SSD benchmark screenshot, run on 10/17/12. Ran it right after I finished OS and driver installsl.

I haven't run it since but I'm actually thinking of running the Samsung Magician software's Performance Benchmark for the first time. I have a question regarding the Test Range setting. Default shows as 1 GB with options for 100, 200 or 400 MB. Any suggestions as to which one I should use? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

That's strange, I'm wondering why your 4K-64Thrd is suffering a performance hit...?

Thanks Sean! I'll give this a try. Someone mentioned to me about inserting my windows disk and doing a start up repair, but he didn't tell me how to delete the partition. Lucky I have my laptop next to my PC to follow your instructions! I'll let you know how I get on. smile.gif
