Scratch that. When people measure boot times do they only count the time Windows takes during its initial loading screen. Wondering because Bootracer also recorded time after logging in, which equated to 24 additional seconds. Which seems excessive because as soon as I log in I can pretty much start any program I want.

That's actually quite slow. My seven year old mechanical used to have about 20-22 seconds boot, but I barely have anything loading at boot except magician, gpu drivers, security essentials, and stuff. And this isn't counting the posting time. IINM my boot with posting is about 8-10 seconds with a similar setup and more than 50% available on my Evo.

My buddy's 840 Pro has been real slow lately and is loading up maps in CSGO slower than me and even people with mechanical drives. This can be attributed to him using up more than 200GB on his 256 gig drive.

I just tested a few times, and it takes about 10 seconds from hitting the power button to seeing the BIOS splash screen, a couple seconds on the splash screen, and then by the time the login screen loads it is about 30 seconds. No idea what is going on.

So, I figured one problem might be that the SSD does not show up in the BIOS boot priority list. It only shows my HDD, which does not even have Windows on it, and my Bluray drive. However, if I go to advanced settings I can manually add the SSD to the boot priority list. Once I have the SSD set up to be what I boot from, OR if I manually choose right then and there to boot from the SSD, it will not boot and will just take me back to the BIOS.

Weird. Basically my computer will not boot unless the HDD and the bluray drive are the two boot priority options. This truly makes no sense.

Try swapping the SATA ports then.

It just got weirder.

Now the SSD shows up in boot priority, alongside the disc drive, but it will not boot and takes me to bios. I manually choose the 1TB secondary drive to boot and it boots fine. This HDD has no Windows installation on it whatsoever. It used to and it actually was still on the drive when I was installing Windows on the SSD and I remember being asked which Windows installation to choose on boot afterwards. I formatted the HDD though. Perhaps something got confused in the mix. Any suggestions outside of wiping the SSD and reinstalling Windows? (really do not want to do that)

Update: set SSD drive as Active (didn't have it that way before) but when I boot from it it says BOOTMGR is missing

I have a feeling your BCD is listed on your mechanical instead of your SSD. As a result, it may have to boot from the mechanical in order to realize that the SSD is the windows/boot drive. This can happen if the drive used to house a Windows installation previously. To fix this, you can unplug your mechanical, boot from your Windows install disc, and repair the installation. Or if you know what you're doing, use EasyBCD to fix it. That's how I migrated my install over from my mechanical and fixed my booting.

If you've quick formatted ( which I'm sure you would have because of the size of the drive ), then files aren't really deleted off the drive IINM. They're still accessible and recoverable unless written over. Which means they can still be read.

The problem with booting from the disc is, well it actually is on a USB drive, but when I do that my mouse and keyboard no longer function once it loads no matter what port they are in.

The mouse and keyboard should function unless you don't have a full fledged install disc. Because the basic drivers for various IO devices are loaded when the disc is booted. Or try keeping them unplugged and then plugging them in after the disc has loaded.

Thanks! Fixed the boot problem. But still have a 10-13 second POST time and then a 15-20 second Windows loading time, so there is that sadly =/
