(SOLVED!!!) Very slow Windows 7 boot times (with SSD) - Page 3

post #21 of 41
I know it sounds ridiculous but I was noticing my windows boot had slowed down to a crawl a few weeks ago and had decided to look into it. Before I could get around to it I decided to do some updates to windows. After downloading and installing new DirectX and some other random crap the computer booted up to the usual "configuring" screen and entered windows after a bit of thought. Ever since the computer has been back to quick booting and I haven't noticed any slow downs at all.
So my advice is to do some upgrades that force windows into reconfiguring itself and see if it makes as big a difference for you as it did me. I'm not sure exactly what it did but it made a hell of a difference on my system.

I've done 3 or 4 clean installs since I got my SSD in April. How could an install go bad?

How would I do this if I am 100% updated already?

I guess just download some component of windows and reinstall it, forcing it to go through the configuring procedure. Maybe try the stand alone directX installation files.


Maybe you could also try disabling some component, rebooting, then re-enabling it to force the same effect. Off the top of my head I'm not sure what all will cause this action or if there is a way to just force windows to do the "scan" on reboot. Maybe google windows boot commands or similar and see what you can find on it.

I would now start looking at your storage controller driver. I really know nothing about AMD so i can't point you in the right direction. The ssd is an earlier model, so i believe your hdtune bench should be close... What we need to know is the time from when the "windows is starting" gui begins to when the desktop appears. Lets eliminate the bios post for now.

The ssd seems to be working fine.Your boot times are being slowed by windows.

If you set optimized defaults in your bios does it help any?If you don't have the latest bios that would be a good idea too.

When you install windows disconnect any other drives,and use the first sata port 1 or 0.

It takes 15 seconds from the time I push the power button until the bios start's then 17 seconds for bios and windows to finish anyhow down to 32 then again I'm loading 3x PCI-E cards and have 5 USB's plugged in, as for your drive being faster on the read but not on the write.

If I could figure out why the bios takes so long to start, I'd be at 17Seconds, LOL
