Windows 7: Reboot time - Mostly waiting for MOBO to post.

Reboot time - Mostly waiting for MOBO to post.

I've noticed that my system, despite having the OS on an SSD drive, takes the same amount of time to boot as a well tuned spinner HD.

Right now I'm about 75 seconds but a good 40 seconds or more is spent waiting for the MOBO to post. I have the ASUS TUF Sabertooth.

On a boot, it seems to run through this check routine where these little red LED lights on the board bounce around and then finally ends near the serial ATA block. It hangs there for about 5 to 10 seconds and then posts.

Then there's the ASUS power up screen where you can go to the EFI bios if you want. It will chill out there for a while too.

Then windows.

All in all, the shut down and start up of the OS only is about 25 to 30 seconds, way shorter than waiting for the MOBO to post.

Any thoughts, comments, suggestions?
