I'll spare you the boring parts.
I just built my first computer (and LOVE it!
), and everything is working beautifully...except for one issue that I've partly solved.
I have Windows 7 booting off my SSD. As I mentioned, it takes about 25 seconds to boot (I've seen it as low as 17). That's with my Hitachi 3TB HDD disconnected (boy, did THAT take some time to get narrowed down). Every time, 20 some seconds to boot.
With the Hitachi connected (that is the ONLY difference), it takes about 80 some seconds to boot. I've googled it to no avail. Went to Hitachi's website and they have nothing regarding anything this specific...no drivers
There's nothing wrong with the Hitachi. I have stuff on it that I use. Windows recognizes it fine.
So anybody have any ideas? I'd like to think that it's not only me that this is happening to!
