      bums me out too...

      system-

      core i7 860

      gigabyte p55a-ud3 f4 bios

      ati 5770

      intel x-25m g2 80gb ssd

      WD caviar black 1 tb

      Seagate 7200.12 1 tb

       

      originally, this was a 2 minute boot time (the entire time was on the starting windows page). Then i unplugged every single sata drive except for the ssd and it went down to 50 seconds (20 on starting windows, 30 on welcome). I replugged everything in and it stayed at a 50 second boot. intel firmware is updated, mobo bios are up to date, video drivers are up to date, windows is up to date.

      Since it is in windows, I'm thinking it's a possible storage driver issue. My bios is set to ahci, which seems to be the way to go with ssds. Uninstalling the MSM and installing the RST hasn't done anything.
