    Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center


    Well thank you, sir. I managed to solve the problem. For my specific model, the solution was this download: Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver - HP Pavilion dm4-3170se Beats Edition Entertainment Notebook PC | HP Support which is an Intel software. I was looking for the solution in that startup dialog, but your post was a nudge in the right direction and things seem great now. Haven't measured startup time but I'm sure it will help. Thanks!

    I'm glad that you sorted that out. I view a lot of threads and don't always reply to all them them. It was something I remembered seeing but since I hadn't actually replied to one of those threads it wasn't in my "Your Posts" list. That left doing a search as the only option. The problem with that is what do you enter for the search, it makes a big difference in the search results. I got lucky.
