I just got a new SSD for my laptop and reinstalled Windows 7 and all my software. I noticed though, now when I startup the computer the boot hangs on the windows logo for a little while and then the rest of the bootup takes under 10 seconds.

I have tried to reinstall Windows 7 multiple times and the boot only seems to get slow once I start using it and installing applications.

I was wondering if anyone knew why this happens or how to diagnose what is slowing it down. Is there a way to see a live log of Windows startup?

Recheck your data cables. For pauses at the logo usually indicates a hardware issue. From msconfig you can activate bootlogging and check the file ntbtlog.txt (not sure of this file name) in windows folder.

It is a laptop so its kind of a pain to get back to the SSD, but I am 99% sure it is sitting in there correctly.

I have enabled boot logging in msconfig and I will see if the log has any useful information when I get a chance to restart.

And I am pretty sure its not due to OS corruption since it has happened on multiple installations and occurs only after I install a bunch of software.
