Try disabling uneeded bios features and hardware. Also see if you have hard drives that the bios is waiting on to spin up.

The more components the BIOS has to check, the longer it takes. Especially disks that have to spin up.

I've only got 2 drives. A 120GB SSD that has the OS and a 2GB Caviar black datadrive.

Everything else is housed externally on ext. HDD. Would an external hdd via USB be something that is holding it back?

Yes. An external hard drive can hold the bios post time up. Try unplugging the external drive and post another reboot time.

Nice! Now, disable uneeded hardware in your bios and tell your bios not to look for any boot drives except your ssd. Don't disable the drives, just select a no boot option.

Absolutely - unless the external drives are switched off. Unplug them for a test and see what happens.

My external drives have switches and I only turn them on when needed. Is better for the HDDs also.
