Here is a video of my problem. I think the AHCI boot is initialized right after windows starts booting, creating a delay

After hours and hours of searching for answers, I finally made it!

The fix consists in following step by step this thread:

The most important things in there are:
1. Make sure the CSM (Compatibility Support Module) have all the settings set to UEFI and not to LEGACY.
2. Make sure you have a Windows 7 with EFI support. Also the USB, in order to be read good by UEFI, has to be FAT32.
3. Configure drive using an UEFI motherboard and GPT format.

/* And this one which I found */
4. Install the AHCI drivers before Windows SETUP.
Install them by pressing "Load Driver" while you are setting up partitions.

Right now, after all this, my windows boot in less that 12 seconds, a time which was ONLY the delay before I fixed this.
