webmeister,
Welcome to SevenForums!

I'd like for you to fill out System Specs fully.

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

ADD the word laptop or desktop or netbook to the
“system manufacturer” block, for example,
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.
======================================================

For ease of use, I prefer Speccy. For the most complete info, then you will be impressed by SIW.
Be sure to give the full info on your os as explained in the write-up.
============================================================
============================================================

Please post a maximized disk management snapshot as explained here:
HOW TO POST A SNAPSHOT OF DISK MANAGEMENT DISPLAY
Run disk management:
WIN |
type DISKMGMT.MSC | ENTER
This method gives you a display without the unneeded navigation pane.
WIN=key with Microsoft logo on top.

Maximize the output of Disk Management:
ALT-Spacebar
key combo | X key (selects Maximize) |
Drag the field separators (such as between Status and Capacity) to show entire field.


Make a snapshot:
WIN |
type SNIPPING | ENTER | New
Drag the cursor around the area you want to snip.
File | Save as | select save location and name | Save


Post the snapshot:
Post a File or Screenshot in Seven Forums

Did you switch to AHCI before or after you installed Windows? I've found that if I do it after (because I forgot and my BIOS defaults to IDE), Windows does not like booting from the drive.

1st - did install windows 7 without changing to AHCI in the BIOS
2nd - after discovery, did the registry change as shown here How to enable AHCI mode for windows 7 and Vista without format. | Bourlas Blog
3rd - Then changed the BIOS to AHCI

Guess that should have been ok but still massively slow.

You updated specs do not reflect the install of SP1.

Have you installed SP1?

Also note that if you changed to AHCI after installing Windows, you should think about Windows 7 optimization, and after also re-run the WinSat tests so Windows "knows" that you're booting an SSD from an AHCI controller and adjusts accordingly.

If getting current on patches (including SP1!!!) doesn't help, you can always take a startup/boot trace to see what's going on.
