So I have noticed that I have splash screen that shows a lot of random information before the computer starts. I looked around and i was told that depending on wh9ich Sata port my HDD is connected to can determine the length of time it takes for my computer to boot. I know that my motherboard has alot of sata ports also.....So i was wondering if he recommended configuration can be suggested. Thanks in advanced

Here's my setup....

2 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), gray

that would be the bottom grey port.
