Yeah that's not the best for a SSD, I get around 20 seconds.

Alot of it will be down to the motherboard no doubt. The newer ones boot faster.

Download AS SSD and post a screenshot of the program open with the SSD selected. You don't have to run the benchmark if you don't want to. Just be sure to uncheck the junk they try to install with it.

Much of the restart time is the motherboard, as Paul said. My Asus board is quite slow. The post time has nothing to do with the SSD. Measure the time from the windows starting screen to the desktop. When you see Windows starting or the flag beginning to come together is the first time the SSD actually takes over.

You are in IDE mode. You need to be in AHCI mode. This tutorial will tell you exactly how to do it. AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista

Are they IDE drives connected to an IDE controller or are they sata drives in IDE mode? If they are sata drives it won't make any difference to them, I'm unsure about actual IDE drives, I can't remember that far back. but, I don't believe it will. It will only matter to your OS drive. Also, make sure it is connected to an Intel sata port (usually port 0 or 1 on the motherboard for best performance).

They are IDE drives connected to an IDE controller (JMicron),cannot use port 0 or 1 as they are occupied by other SATA drives and impossible to switch due to cable management,gave it a try,bricked BIOS and cleared CMOS to operate.

I don't think the AHCI should have any effect on the IDE drives as they are on a different controller, but I can't say that for certain. But, all SSDs I know of need to be in AHCI mode to operate at their best performance. But, the numbers you showed are much better than a mechanical hard drive, so you could just leave it like it is, if you choose.
