Windows 7: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit takes forever to boot with SSD?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit takes forever to boot with SSD?

Hello!

As the title says, my Windows 7 takes forever to boot (3 - 5 minutes) to boot with an SSD. From the motherboard splash screen it goes directly to the Windows bootscreen and sits there for maybe 2 - 3 minutes, then the computer goes into "hibernation" and my screens goes into power saving mode. It sits there for another 2 - 3 minutes before it finally shows the desktop.
However, it's only the boot time that's been increased, games and programs on the SSD run with the same speed as usual.

I have tried to boot up in safe mode but it stops at "CLASSPNP.SYS" and wont move for maybe 5 minutes.
I tried using the Startup Repair Tool but it can't fix the problem.

ACHI is activated and the drivers are up to date, for both the SSD and Windows.

I have attached the bootlog to this thread(It's extremely long).

I appreciate any help on this matter, it's been like this for almost two months and it's driving me crazy.

EDIT: I should probably add that rebooting does not take long at all. It takes around 20 seconds.

I would start with the System File Checker.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

See if that fixes it.

I tried using the System File Checker 2 or 3 times and it said it found corrupted files but couldn't fix some of them. I checked the log and it doesn't show which files it can't fix. I attached the log so you can check if there's something I missed.

Hmmm, that's quite a log! So many corrupted files. It says the files are on F:\ is F:\ you OS drive letter? Have you somehow migrated from C:\? Was this a normal install that has developed this problem, or have tyou moved it, or altered it somehow? The log seems to say all the problems were corrected. When you run SFC, it still says you have corrupted files?

I wouldn't usually, but in your case, I'd be tempted to go straight to a Repair Install.

EDIT:

OK, I see them now:

Code:
CSI    0000068b [SR] Could not reproject corrupted file [ml:520{260},l:46{23}]"\??\C:\Windows\System32"\[l:22{11}]"apphelp.dll"; source file in store is also corrupted

CSI    000006d8 [SR] Could not reproject corrupted file [ml:520{260},l:46{23}]"\??\C:\Windows\System32"\[l:14{7}]"wer.dll"; source file in store is also corrupted
These are listed as C:\ ...still wondering about this installation...F:\...C:\ ?

I have my default installation path set to F:\ but my OS is still on C:\. I use my SSD (C:\) for the OS and a couple of performance heavy programs and a HDD (F:\) for games and storage.

I'll replace the corrupted files and see if that fixes it.

Please post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Management drive map and listings with all drives:

1. Type Disk Management in Start Search box.
2. Open Disk Mgmt. window and maximize it.
3. Type Snipping Tool in Start Search box.
4. Open Snipping Tool, choose Rectangular Snip, draw a box around full map and all listings.
5, Save Snip, attach using paper clip in Reply Box.

Tell us what is on each partition.

Did you correctly unplug the HD during install to SSD?

Did you follow the Best Practices for Win7 install which are the same for retail?

I apologize for the screenshot being in Swedish.

As I said before; C: is mainly for the OS and a few performance heavy programs (Photoshop etc.), F: is for games and storage(Movies, music, pictures etc.)
If you need me to translate the screenshot just tell me and I'll do my best.

If by "correctly unplug the HDD" you mean didn't have it plugged in as I installed the OS then yes.

From an installation point of view, it looks correct and if the secondary HD was unplugged it shouldn't be able to interfere anyway.

But I would want to overwrite with Diskpart Clean Command boot code which interferes enough to solve half of all installation problems by wiping the HD.

Then follow the steps closely for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

You can also try the Clean Boot suggested, make sure all Important and Optional Updates are installed, comb the logs and use System Resources to check for solutions from Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

Just so I have understood you correctly, you want me to reinstall Windows?
