I just finished a new build with a Intel i3 2100, ASRock H61M motherboard, 4 gb of ram and a Mushkin 60g Chronos X ssd. Win 7 Home prem install went fine and put in all the updates. I then took the sata hdd out of old computer and still booted up from the ssd, still np. Reformatted the hdd and wiped it clean. When I restarted the computer, I noticed that it wasn't booting as quickly as it did. Not super slow but no where near as quick. The hdd is only 250g. From my limited experience I believe the motherboard tries to scan all the drives. Am I correct in my assumption and is this is what is causing this extra 10-15 second slow down and is there any way to speed it up?
Immediately after you start your computer and before Windows starts go into the System BIOS and check the drive boot order. You should be able to choose the ssd as your boot drive. While you're at it check and make sure you are in AHCI mode.
