Windows 7: Slow Startup Times, Error Event ID 100

Slow Startup Times, Error Event ID 100

Yesterday morning, I re-seated my HSF and also installed an old DVD burner from my old computer into my newly built one (built on 11/6/09). It should be a pretty fast system (i7 920, 120-GB SSD, 6GB DDR3 OCZ Platinum...), and I was fine with the boot time before yesterday (though I think it was still closer to a minute), but after I started it up yesterday (post install), it took a long time to start up and seemed to hang on the "Starting Windows" screen. I've done alot of researching, and can't quite figure out what is wrong, though maybe it has to do with the DVD drive I put in. I checked the device, and it says it is working properly and it says the driver is up to date.

Here is one log from the Event Viewer:

This Error appeared yesterday in the log (though I just checked the log today). This error comes up as a Warning almost everyday in the event log (except 2 Fridays ago ?), along with Event ID 300 for most of the previous week.

Any ideas? The only thing that I can think of is to do a re-install of Windows 7 (64bit), but I'm a bit nervous about that.

I checked the boot order, and the recently installed drive is last (4th). Interestingly, though, 1st is "Floppy Disk", but I don't have a floppy disk. Then is my OCZ SSD drive (C: ), then LG Blu-Ray Burner (D: ), and last is BenQ DVD Burner (F: ). It also lists A: Floppy Disk when I go to My computer. What is this? I also have an external HDD (160GB Maxtor) (E: ).

Should I just remove the BenQ drive? Maybe the IDE connection is causing problems? I am a noob, so any help is appreciated.
