I've been experiencing really annoying issues with my new build, which I can't find any working solution to.
Basically, when I first built the PC, it was booting straight from the SSD, and it was insanely fast, about 8 seconds boot. However, after a day or so, I realised that I hadn't assigned a drive letter to my 3TB storage HDD. So, evidently, I went ahead and did that. Now, all of my boot times are considerably longer. Please advise if there is any way I can avoid this, maybe by stopping the HDD from spinning up until after windows flag boot, or something like that.
