Re: Windows 7 takes 5 minutes to boot on SSD
I had problems with a usb printer plugged in and turned on before. The computer did not like the printer powered up when booting and would take forever to boot up. My coworker had a similar problem with an external hard drive plugged into the usb port and powered up.
I think starting off unplugging your usb device is a good idea to start troubleshooting.
