I'm unfamiliar with PreSMSS or how to speed it up. As for devices, I have 1 SSD, 3 HDD's, and a BluRay writer connected to the Intel SATA connectors (I don't use the Marvell connectors). Then I've got 2 USB 3.0 external HDD's (one is a dual enclosure), and a USB 2.0 external HDD (Seagate FreeAgent, which also seems to be slowing down the boot, if I'm reading the results correctly...)
Gah! What the hell? I swear I double checked that before I posted... Okay, I'm attaching it again, and if for some reason there's no file, than it's also on pastebin here: http://pastebin.com/EPZcvRgF EDIT: ah...you have to click that button after selecting it...skipped that step before... summary_boot.xml
So, I'm currently booting into Windows 7 Pro 64-bit w/ a P9x79 Deluxe mobo, an Intel i7 3930K CPU, 4x4GB DDR3-1600, and an OCZ Vertex 3 240GB SSD...but it generally stays on the Windows loading screen for 15-20 seconds or more, when many others are telling me that their UEFI computers boot up in <8 seconds and that the Windows loading screen barely has time to flash, and I can't for the life of me figure out what could be causing the delay. I created a thread over in the Tom's Hardware forums and when I wasn't having much luck, one of the other members referred me to your thread, so I was hoping maybe you might spot something I've missed. I've attached the xml file from the trace boot, please let me know if there's anything else that might help figure out what I'm doing wrong.
