Don't know about that... My BIOS Screen appears for 15 seconds... With the SATA devices disconnected, the OS takes 15 seconds to load. With my six SATA devices connected, the OS takes 45-50 seconds to load...

Did you have those other drives connected when you installed windows?
Yes - you aren't booting off the ssd then. Unplug all the drives except the SSD and reinstall windows again.
Yes i am booting off the ssd i only have windows installed on it other drives dont have windows only plain files and apps (my boot time is 20 seconds now btw but am trying to reduce it more)

Did you test this with ALL other drives disconnected?

20 seconds from an actual cold boot is absolutely normal. The BIOS takes up a lot of that, and what drive you have makes zero difference.

Just so you know, if another storage drive is installed when you installed windows, Windows will write the boot stuff to the drive that you aren't installing windows to. This confounding situation has been going on since Win7 days.
