Windows 7: Event ID 109 Help: Slow Bootup

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

StartTime 2011-05-20T17:06:55.640400200Z
NameLength 33
Name PCIIDE\IDEChannel\4&1650ceac&0&1

VersionLength 0
Version
TotalTime 60004
DegradationTime 49997

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.

Event ID 109 is a networking error? was that a critical error in event viewer or just info?

Use Windows 7 Event Viewer to track down issues that cause slower boot times | TechRepublic

According to that, an Event ID of 109 is a device failing. I get the exact same error every time I start up. I just switched back to my mechanical and the issue went away.
