Event ID 109 Help: Slow Bootup

I recently switched from a mechanical HDD to a SSD. In Windows, it performs great. Good WEI and a good benchmark score on the one benchmark I ran. Programs load very quickly, especially iTunes, which was previously excruciatingly slow.

Problem is it takes much longer than my mechanical HDD took to startup. Going through Event Viewer, 60 of the 75 seconds it takes to boot up are due to device initialization. Tracking down the error code, I got

How do I determine what device that is? I am sure it's related to the SSD, but is it the drive? Controller? Motherboard? Any help is appreciated.
