Has anybody had the same issue I am having and does anybody know a solution to the following:
I decided to get a 64GB SSD to replace my System Drive; I wanted quick boots and software startup.
After many many restores from image (finding out that my file drive wasn't included in the image in the process) formatting and finally a few clean clean installs with no performance gain whatsoever, I found the problem: I always changed the desktop background to solid black right after the install (I don't dig the default blue logo screen at all). And this simple action, which I didn't think would kill the perforamce of an SSD, this simple change put the boot time of the SSD in the area of my old spinning drive.
Changed back to default screen and voila, a blazing fast drive with amazing boot times.
Has anyone heard of that before, does anyone have any ideas how to work around that (I still don't dig the default desktop....)?
The read / write speeds by the way were definitely up where they need to be when benchmarked, but the boot time was lousy.
Thanks for your input / comments.
