Hello,

after installation of Windows 8.1 64 i recognized, that my rig is booting very slow. It hangs for about 12 seconds on boot screen, then flashes all drives and boot the rest of Windows. I figured out the reason for it - Intel Smart Response. If i boot into the SATA controller BIOS, and hit 5 for acceleration, the Status is "No Sync". I sync manually and the boot pause is gone. But if i turn off the PC, it is back again. Any BETA-Bios or advice you can give me?

Best regards,

Tim
