Update: Today i measured and it took almost 3 minutes to get to the login screen, then another 1 minute and a half to finish loading windows... Is it correct?!

Try this.
Unplug all other disk.
How long does it take to boot?
I will try that by the end of the day... I'm working on my computer right now, so I can't be restarting now...

EDIT: I only have two disks anyway... the other is a HDD that has always been there, before the sandisk and the crucial...

How can you clone a 240GB source and come out with a 313GB destination?

Can you post a screen shot of crystal disk info?

Bios time....I don't have your machine but I see 2.5-4.5 secs.
Oh i found out what took the extra space, it was Battlefield V... Origin wont function well with games installed outside C:

Sorry i forgot to try... after rebooting it took 34 seconds... I've noticed that last time had some .NET Framework update in the background...
The .net update may just be a normal update that your being fed.
So far it looks like the boot is having a problem with the hdd.
Plug in the hdd and run a pass of crystal disk info on the hdd.
Post a screen shot.

Nothing jumps out there as being bad.

Am I correct that it takes 3-4 mins to boot with the hdd connected and 30-40 secs with the hdd disconnected?

If so connect the hdd and do a clean boot....see google.
What happens?

The first 4 boots after BootRacer installed...

No, i never disconnected the HDD... This is weird, sometimes it takes 3-4 minutes, others it takes 30-40 seconds... makes no sense...

@Bob.B i've done two boots WITHOUT the HDD and one back again with the HDD connected... below are the results... it has no consistency whatsoever, hard to tell what ruins my boot time...

Leave the hdd unplugged just to get it out of the mix for testing.
If your using hibernate turn it off.....test.
Reseat the ssd power cable both ends....test.
Reseat the sata data cable both ends....test.
Try a different sata port on the mobo....test.
Try a different sata cable....test.

I've left some time recording ALL boot times... and its so inconsistent... I did all the procedures you sent me and every time it changes, doesn't meaning that what i did actually did some difference, just that it's quite random, but mostly slow... I don't know what program should i use to better visualize what's holding my boot back...

Best time: 30.968
Worst time: 287.828
Average time: 139.637

that program doesnt really tells you why its taking so long to load
microsoft has tools for that

but most likely try to cleanup restore points
press window key + pause/break on keyboard, or open system setting
click there system protection
select drive where protection is set to ON, then click to configure
press delete button

I used a command to check the boot up time... the "xbootmgr -trace shutdown -traceFlags BASE+DIAG+LATENCY -noPrepReboot" and funny enough it booted in only 44 seconds...

Is there any tool that can record and show better than those ones said before?? The "Windows Performance Recorder" is not working because it seems that he cannot turn on/off the computer... i already disabled all of the drive protections and deleted the cached memory but the boot is still very poor, today it was 254.046 miliseconds, more than 4 minutes to boot up... I'm getting crazy over this, my last SSD, a Sandisk never did this...
 
no idea how that gui version works, mine doesnt finish aswell :/
but xbootmgr commandline works, you just have to add more parameters to it so it can record a few more things
Code:
xbootmgr –trace boot -traceFlags BASE+LATENCY+DISK_IO_INIT+DISPATCHER+DRIVERS+FILE_IO+FILE_IO_INIT+FILENAME+NETWORKTRACE+PERF_COUNTER+POWER+PRIORITY+REGISTRY -postBootDelay 300 -resultPath C:\Boot_Trace
