1) Are the maps on the SSD, or on a HDD. 1 min seems long even for a HDD, Not a gamer so my judgement may be impared.

Recommend that you download/install/and run AS SSD. DO NOT need to run the benchmarks.
Look in upper left and verify:
1) Firmware is 0009 or 0309. 0009 improved the performance verse 0006. The 0309 fixed the 5000 hour bug.
2) verify that the driver is NOT pcide = BAD
3) verify that the SSD partition is Aligned.

I see you have an amd system. Is the SSD on the amd chipset or a marvel based chipset. Did not look up MB. The marvel based MB controller is poor.
In your case the Driver should be either msahci or an amd driver.

Also should verify that trim is enabled. Not sure if your Bios is set to raid (not ahci) if Trim will be enabled - I know it will be on an intel chipset as long as the drive is not a member of a raid configuration.

He's asking if you have the game installed on your SSD, or on another drive. If you have windows installed on the ssd, it would be automatically installed there, otherwise you would have had to change the directory to a file in your SSD during installation.

bf2player1978, How did you verify that the controller is AHCI.
The number of SSDs does not determin Bios Seting, But if infact using msahci as the driver then that says that the BIOS must have been set to AHCI during windows 7 Installation.

If you did a clean install to SSD, trim should have been auto set to enabled. If you cloned from a HDD, no you must enable it. (PS I never recommend coning a HDD -> and SSD anyway.

Added. With the game and maps on the SSD, i Min is WAY to longggg
