Slow boot with SSD in DVD caddy

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a model 17y003cy, with an AMD A12 processor running Windows 10 x64 with an SSD in the DVD caddy. It restarts in about 60 seconds and power off boots (fast startup) in about 23 seconds. The restart is slow, and comparing it with an HP Pavilion laptop with an AMD A9 processor on W10 using a normal HD, is only 10 seconds or so faster than. The SSD tests fast using Crystal Disk (553/432 R/W). I have tried many, many things including booting clean with all my startups in a separate batch file, to get the best results. I am convinced there is a driver issue during the restart/boot process that is taking too long, but I'm not smart enough to use Windows Performance  to find it, I REALLY wish MS had continued with bootvis. It was so easy to use. I would appreciate any ideas anyone has that may help to resolve this. Oh, and after a restart, the laptop is much faster opening programs than when it was booting off the internal HD. Thanks!

Normally we do not use SSD on ODD slot because SATA port on ODD is much slower, in many cases it is only SATA-1 speed that why you only get 553/432 R/W.


Please use normal way: put SSD to normal HDD bay to boot and move old HDD to ODD bay for storage.
