I have a new home built PC and ended up wanting to keep my old DVD RW from my other PC. It is an IDE drive so I purchased a converter and have it working fine. My problem is that my computer only has a SSD, and used to boot windows in about 3-4 seconds, however after installing the DVD drive it takes about 10 seconds (if i disconnect the drive it boots just as fast as it used to, so I know the drive is the issue). I have the boot order set to the SSD first, so I'm not sure why it is taking longer. I have BIOS set to AHCI, and the DVD drive only works when the jumper is set to master.

More aboutide sata dvd drive slow windows boot
Don't use any PATA to SATA adapter, its dangerous for the system. And it will boot slow for sure.
