Your SSD has to be in AHCI mode for best performance, not IDE mode.

If you are in IDE mode you have to edit the Windows Registry file before you can change to AHCI mode.
Here's a link for instructions: http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/forum/content.php?286...

Also, boot times will vary from system to system depending on what startup programs (backup, anti-virus, etc.) you have installed.
