Thanks for responding.
Yes, mine is not booting as fast as I thought it would with a SSD. My boot time varies between 30 to 90 seconds!
Samsung 500GB 850 EVO - ~30 seconds from the power button with a cold boot. However...15 seconds of that is the BIOS doing its thing. Which the SSD has no impact on.
After that....~15 seconds to a usable desktop. That last 15 seconds is the only thing the drive type can influence.
