Why is your pagefile on E? Also, how large is it? (Your setting)
I put my pagefile on E based on a recommendation from this SSD setup guide: SpeedGuide.net :: SSD Speed Tweaks

I set it to Windows Managed.

Same result.

Yeah, I don't agree with that part but it's your system. Windows 7 is reading and writing to the SSD about every second but that's not a reason to move the OS to a hard drive. Since the pagefile is sequential read/write, the SSD is super fast. And Windows will use the pagefile even if you have memory available. (For sure, you have that!)

I also don't agree with setting it equal to memory size. 1-2Gb is plenty but keep it 512Kb boundary relevant.

Wear on the SSD? It's already been shown that most SSDs will outlive the rest of your system. You have it, make it work for you.

In any case, I'm going to think about the boot delay some more.

After sifting through all this information...Have you tried removing the Wi-Fi card and see if for whatever reason it was the cause of the slow down?

Not yet. I'll have to wait until my wife finishes using the machine before I can shut it down and pull the card.

Are wireless cards known to cause boot delays?

I have not come across any that have...HOWEVER, with so many different hardware and software configurations...It is entirely possible something is not happy and causes the delay.

Since its the only thing that hasnt been attempted so far, its a starting point. If that fails to solve the issue, then we can all scratch our heads some more.

The very last possibility might be related to the now disconnected and uninstalled HP all in one printer. When I first started noticing the boot delay, I booted into safe mode to see if I could find any unrecognized hardware in Device Manager. To my surprise, I found a yellow exclamation point next to an unknown mass storage controller. After I unplugged the HP printer from the USB port and uninstalled the printer, the unknown device went away. I read on the net somewhere that the device could have been a card reader, and I know one was integrated into the HP unit. Assuming this was the problem (big assumption), wouldn't it have disappeared along with the printer itself?

Anyway, now you know why I'm here.

Not necessarially. When you uninstall a program, many times there are fragments of the program left in the registry.

Taking the Wifi card out didn't help. The only thing left is the Radeon card, and I just can't imagine it would be the culprit given how many millions of them are running on Windows 7 systems without issue.

I don't recall, but have you run sfc /scannow? It is a system file checker and will verify and attempt to correct system files.
