Hey all,

recently put together a system including a Rampage IV Extreme. I tried installing Windows 7 x64 in UEFI mode, which worked, but the boot is extremely slow. Without changing a single setting aside from booting to BIOS and installing, the boot is nearly instant.

The boot drive is a Raid 1 consisting of 2x Samsung 840 Pros.

Any ideas what's going on? Everything I read says UEFI should be booting faster, not taking 3-4x as long. Once I get into the OS things do seem pretty good either way, can't really tell the difference.
