i just build a new computer and theres just one prolem thats drivng me crazy. whenever i start up the computer windows 7 will hang on the windows logo for about 10 seconds. now this doesnt seem like much of a problem but with the listed specs below there should only be about a 3-4 second delay. at first i thought is was my ssd because one of my friends put his intel 320 in there and it booted up just fine,but after i got my vertex 4 replaced i had the same issue. ive installed windows with multiple installations so its not the windows 7 cd/usb. ive installed windows in AHCI and RAID-RTSe-with load driver at install. if i install at first using RAID and then change back to AHCI it boots perfect, but right after i install the motherboard drivers it goes back to that long boot. it also seems that if i install a driver the requires restarting and install another driver before restarting, OCZ toolbox wont even recognize my ssd. none of this makes any sense, help would be much appreciated!
Some more information.
So I did another clean install of windows with raid (rst) and installed the latest driver for it (rst 11.7) off of intel because asrocks website has old drivers, which pissed me off. After I finished that I also installed the intel inf x79 chipset driver and it began booting perfect but then I installed the asmedia driver and it got screwed up again. I noticed that was also an old driver so I got the new one but the boot was still messed up.
So i think i've figured it out. i uninstalled the asmedia sata3 driver and it now boots up almost instantly. Asrock must have some *** drivers or something because half of them werent even the updated ones anyway, let alone working! Im going to complain to them about this for what all i've went through. Thanks anyway everyone!
