    well your drive seems to be working fine based on that ATTO bench, but it still seems wierd how long that boot time is.

    I know i can't figure it either. only thing i can think of is faulty motherboard. I've tried all the sata 3 ports and i get the same result. I've even unplugged all other hdds and still the same. Also pulled the cmos battery for 30 seconds.

    are you sure its not a driver idiling and holding up the system? He may not have even noticed with the 80 GB because it was so slow.

    the problem is clearly not with the SSD, check your boot logs, run msconfig, see what is loading up. Does it take long to load into safemode?

    Completely forgot to do that. Below is a copied/pasted list of everything that loads with Windows after enabling boot logging in msconfig:

    Did not load driver \SystemRoot\System32\Drivers\NDProxy.SYS
    Did not load driver \SystemRoot\System32\Drivers\NDProxy.SYS
    Did not load driver \SystemRoot\System32\Drivers\NDProxy.SYS
    Did not load driver \SystemRoot\System32\Drivers\NDProxy.SYS

    it looks like its attempting to reload this driver 4 times... 5 if you count that it loaded successfully before, I would start here.

    Loaded driver \??\C:\Program Files (x86)\LogMeIn\x64\RaInfo.sys
    Loaded driver \??\C:\Windows\system32\drivers\LMIRfsDriver.sys

    This looks interesting...

    Loaded driver \SystemRoot\System32\DRIVERS\srv.sys
    Did not load driver \SystemRoot\System32\DRIVERS\srv.sys

    It is trying to load this twice, which could also cause a slowdown as it waits, retries.

    Have you tried using intel AHCI driver instead of MSAHCI driver.

    unplug all the USB devices from the laptop and go to MSconfig and click the diagnostic option on the startup tab - does it still take long to load?

    Let us know if the diagnostic boot still hangs.

    My bet is that it is a funky network driver. if you want to try to uninstall the network drivers from the control panel and the wifi software, reboot, and re-install that might fix it.

    ill try reinstalling the drivers. it's a desktop too btw.

    Ill check that link out for sure thanks! as for something being wrong with the network i highly doubt it since the other 3 computers in the house don't have this issue.

    try the diagnostic startup... one way for sure to tell that it is drivers is if the diagnostic boot does not take long.

    Must be the drivers. I did the diagnostic startup and it took maybe 10 seconds to load windows.

    It's been doing it on a fresh install of windows so root kits arent the issue.

    Fresh install of windows doesn't mean you got rid of a root kit. They like to hide in the MBR also.

    I'm not saying you got one. Im just saying it could be an issue. Delete all partions and reinstall into one. Only then will it create a new MBR.

    Impossible. It was on a brand new SSD fresh out of the wrapped box and it was having the issue.

    Batou1986 mentioned using an intel AHCI driver instead of the MSAHCI. I went ahead and downloaded the intel rapid storage technology driver and Windows loads in 13 seconds, down from 3 minutes. :D
