windows 7 professional x64 SP1

When I first Installed my SSD and made it my Primary drive for Windows - I unplugged my other drives and installed windows as an Independent Locale. After i loaded Windows I Flashed my Bios with the Latest & Greatest Flash from my Mobo manufacturer. D/L'd and installed the Inf update that is needed by my RAID & other controllers on my mobo that was required above all else and the other driver went down the line - It is really important You do the Latest Inf update for you mobo for you SSD configuration.

You may have had an older version of windows on another drive and by default it could be overriding your SSD/windows MBR.

Seriously, If I were you - I'd make an image of your old drive (store that image on a CD or several) for DATA only and then Wipe the disk in Disk management.

Windows Ultimate x64

Okey so I think I fixed it, but everytime I think that its just temporary... But tried a different sata connection on the MB and it seems like it fixed everything (ofcouse after I reinstalled windows and everything).

But I'll run it for a few days and let you guys know how it all turns out :)
Thanks so much for all your help!

Windows Ultimate x64

Okey so been running without many problems since my last post. I specified the problem a bit more sence then, it seems like its only the first time I open something it takes a long time. Ex. The first time I open firefox/anything else it takes +10 secs, second time it's instant - any idea what could be wrong, also system health report detects a long disc queue + not all data is collected since there is a problem with Event Tracing whatever that is :/
Any ideas?

I would run a full Disk Check and the HD maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan.

Are you doing any tweaking, modding or theming beyond normal System settings?

Are you using the drivers from the installer and then quickly updated by optional Windows Updates, or changing them out without trying them first?
