(SOLVED!!!) Very slow Windows 7 boot times (with SSD)

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
I posted this over in the Windows section, but I feel it may be an SSD issue as well.

Ever since I got my SSD, I have not been AT ALL impressed with my boot time. I have given myself time to figure out what is going on, to no avail. So just now, I happened to reboot my main rig (in sig), then reboot my laptop (old as dirt with 250gb WD Cav Blue mechanical HD). What do ya know...I hear WinXP start up music and look over at my desktop and it is still sitting at the Windows boot splash (this is where it always seems to get hung). I have tried the no GUI boot and checking the boot log, both also to no avail.

The only real tweaks I have done (that are still in effect) is moving the TMP and TEMP folders to a separate partition on my secondary HD. I have tried having ZERO startup programs, even though I only have AVG and Everest at startup anyways. My pagefile is shrunk (shrank?) down to 1gb.

I have (and always have had) at least 18gb free on my SSD. I just did a clean install last week and it still persists.

Do you have trim enabled? (running W7 with AHCI enabled in bios)
Also did you try a fresh install? (if you didnt have AHCI enabled, please reinstall)

How long is long?
I timed mine from the time I push the button-Vista Ultimate 64bit took 1:06, 7 Ultimate 64bit takes :42 seconds.

Looks like write times are low?

Yes, trim is enabled. I just did a fresh install last week. AHCI has always been enabled.

I'll time it now, but the fact remains that my OLD laptop (Pavillion ZE2000) boots faster is PATHETIC!!!!!

write times? i believe that shows reads. But write times would have no affect on boot time. What controller is your drive on?
fyi 1:06 seconds for windows boot even 40 seconds is very slow, i boot windows 7 ultimate 64bit in under 20 seconds. (quick boot enabled in bios, and disabled alluneeded stuff.)

FYI generally the more USB devices and stuff plugged into your motherboard will increase boot time by a TON, try unplugging all of them and see what happens.
