Slow booting after second SSD in Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-58CL

Hello friends.

I have a Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-58CL, wich already had a 120 GB SSD and a 1 TB HDD.

I bought a new 512 GB SSD, and installed it as the second SSD, but after this, the boot is now too slow (taking around 3-5 minutes to see the Windows login screen).

What can be the cause of this? I can see both SSD drivers in BIOS, and already tried to change minor things in BIOS, but nothing worked.

After the login screen appears, I can do whatever I want and use both SSD without any issues.

Also, after intalling the second SSD, the coolers are always making a lot of noise.

Any ideia on how to solve this?

    Search Windows start menu 'cmd'. Right click command prompt appearing near top menu. Click run as administrator. At the command prompt enter 'diskpart'. At the diskpart prompt enter 'list disk'. Post screeshot of result if possible.

    Hi JackE, thanks for your answers.

    But, I did format the first SSD (the one wich game with the notebook) and now everything works fine.

    I didn't had to do anything with my second SSD neither de HDD. Now the boot time looks great.

    Anyway, thanks for your time.

  • About the fans speeding up when you installed a second ssd, some users solved this problem by installing a heatsink over the pch.
