Slow boot ups after new HDD installation

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I recently installed a 3TB Barracuda, and since then I've been having an issue with my boot up times.

Prior to installing the HDD, my PC used to boot up within 15-20 seconds (Crucial M4).

However, with the new drive installed, it can take around 5-6 minutes before my PC is even responsive. If I unplug the HDD, my boot times return to normal.

I've checked my boot priorities and everything is fine, so I'm pretty much baffled right now!

Any help will be much appreciated!

Does the pc stay in ahci mode whith the other Drive connection? Seems odd that it would change, but worth checking.

Sorry for the late response guys. I appreciated the suggestions! thumb.gif

I ran the Lifeguard utility and the drive is fine. I also checked to make sure the PC stayed in ahci mode and it does.

After a while of having it disconnection, I reconnected it earlier, and strangely it isn't slowing boots down too much now. There's only a 10-15 second slow down.
