Windows 7: Show us your SSD performance

To follow up, I did a "Diagnostic Startup" in 50 seconds. Shutdown was much faster, though.

It should be about half of that, was it a clean install?

This is from last year with my old X25-V 40GB Intel (in my laptop now), not much tweaking done.

Haven't done one for the X25-M 120GB Intel, maybe when Win8 beta gets installed

I did this when I first built this computer about 8 Months ago. I think I used my 80GB Intel X25-M

One of the primary benefits of Soluto is the ease with which boot programs can be either bypassed or delayed. You have a fairly large number of start up programs. Try going through all of the green and orange colored choices in your Soluto list and aggressively pause every single one with the exception of any antivirus programs. You can easily reboot and turn them on or delay them.
Once you have done that, restart at least twice and check your Soluto times. it is possible that while the decrease in overall boot time is obvious, your "system" time could also decrease considerably from its presently high level. If it does not then there is something clearly wrong in your setup as Dave76 and essenbe have pointed out.

This is my second installation on it. My first installation was short lived. I deleted the volume and recreated it using the installation CD.

Thanks, I'll try that now. I don't mind reinstalling in general, but I've done it several times recently and am getting a little burned out. So hopefully it doesn't come to that.

I chopped all the blue ones (except Afterburner) and the orange ones I was comfortable with, and still got 1:04. Then took off Afterburner too, and got :52, which is better.

Is there a cmd prompt or something to check for potential startup hiccups? I.e. to see if the computer is hanging at a particular spot each time?

Hold down the Windows key (the one with the flag) and press R. Type msconfig in the run box and go to the startup tab. Uncheck as many as you want. Those unchecked will not run at startup. I have everything unchecked except Windows OS and anti virus. With an SSD you don't need everything to run at startup, they will open instantly when needed. I don't even have CCC or Afterburner checked and have no problems at all.

Yeah, I've done that stuff. I was thinking more like for 10 seconds the OS is trying to find a peripheral or file that doesn't exist, therefore making the "system" boot take longer than it should.

You can go to bios and disable anything you don't use, thus keeping the bios from looking for it. Example, if you have an entry in bios for a floppy but don't use one, disable it. If you have 2 sata controllers, but don't use one, disable the one you don't use. I have 2 sata controllers, by disabling the one I don't use, my reboot time went from 29 seconds to 23 seconds.

(Let me know if I should start a separate topic at this point.)

So I tried a few more things.

I enabled boot logging, and saw that "NDProxy.SYS" loaded then failed 4 times. Looking that up, I see many posts about that coinciding with people hanging at boot (much longer than I, but with normal HDDs). Apparently it's related to a network device.

I have a WIFI card in a PCI slot but it is disabled, so that's not it.

I also tried running sfc /scannow in the cmd prompt. No errors found.

A MS help page suggested starting in Safe Mode. When I start in it, it always seems to hang at "classpnp.sys," or the driver right after that - I can't really tell. Same deal with Safe Mode w/ Networking.

I haven't really started searching that particular driver yet. I'm gonna go eat dinner then keep looking. Any of these things ringing any bells with people?

Thanks.
