    Fast Startup would only be available if you have hibernate enabled.

    Install latest firmware yet? (Verify that this is your drive, of course.)

    Hibernate disabled, latest firmware.

    I found the problem. I was going to reinstall the Samsung software that came with the SSD, but when I tried the optical drive would not open. I rebooted and pressed the open button during boot and it came up quickly, even though the drive still did not open.

    Shutdown and checked the cable and power connector. They "seemed" okay, but now it boots normally and I can open the drive. Problem must have been a timeout in BIOS when it was looking for bootable devices. I did have the optical drive in the boot selection list.

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Glad to hear it. Yep, these things happen and it's always a sigh of relief when you figure them out. Good deal.
