    My PC is still taking about 30s to boot to the login screen using the new SSD. Does the analysis of boot time below show where the bottlenecks are?

    I've since found much of the delay was due to an external Seagate USB HDD I have. Once removed, the boot up time decreased to 20s. I changed the partition to inactive as recommended on some forum posts and this has kept the boot time to 20s with the USB HDD connected at boot. Another recommendation was to perform a chkdsk /r analysis of the USB HDD which is currently unerway.
