Solved Help! Slow boot speed with new build and old hd Tags: New Build Slow Startup Hard Drives HD Systems Last response: February 26, 2012 2:34 AM in Systems Share chaos92soahc February 26, 2012 1:32:47 AM So I just built my new computer with everything new but the hard drive and the boot speed is really slow. Here is what I got from Hd Tune: Transfer rate Max 111.2 Mb/s Min 7Mb/s Average 78.7 Mb/s The hard drive I'm using is a WD Caviar SE16 With 320Gb Should I get a new hard drive or is something else causing slow boot More about : slow boot speed build Best solution hunter315 February 26, 2012 1:42:53 AM If its just slow to load windows thats because the HDD is an older slower design, if it is slow to post and get to the windows loading screen turn on quick boot in BIOS, it skips some of the extra checks at boot to speed it up significantly. chaos92soahc February 26, 2012 1:50:57 AM It's slow loading window 7.
