163387ms boot duration with an SSD?


New Member
As the title suggests really, always had crap boot times with my computer but I've now re-installed everything with an SSD and it's probably even worse. Any suggestions?

Defrag perhaps? Or is that a massive no-no with SSD's... I've already ruined one before a year ago so I'm wary or how I deal with it now.

Have you ever tried doing a clean install and watching the boot times? I believe if the system is looking for some network device, or having a problem with any hard drive, it can slow things down.

If it is a prior install, it might be the above or some utility/driver trying to load, or something scanning for some reason.
