So, I was looking around my bios to get a sense of what is what, and I came across the some thing called "Fast boot" in the Boot menu.
It was disabled. It had a brief and useless desciption so I have no idea what it actually does.
Google has been no use for me, and I am hoping oine of you will know what it is.
My boot drive is a Kingston V300 120GB SSD, with a WD Blue 1tb Storage Drive.
