No, The things I stated will only get you to the log in screen quicker. I didn't know we were talk strictly from the log in. I must have over looked it

That link will help you understand the HD drive manufacture question. Its a loaded answer. Some hard drives are faster then others

Let's make sure we're on the same page here.

You are talking about the time from when you press the power button to when the rig is ready for tasks, correct?

My diagnosis remains - Your HDD is probably a slower model than the SeaGate.

Same. That, or fragmentation. Just because you don't have as much installed doesn't mean it's not fragmented to hell and back. But I'm not a fan of Samsung HDD's at all, Seagate makes excellent drives, but I tend to stick with WD, simply because they have very similar speeds, and WD just feels like it has slightly better build quality, and I've always used them without problems.

K, so your harddrive is most likely slower. Not that hard to believe, really

Seagate 7200.12

I recommend single platter drives for speed though. This would be things like the 250GB 7200.10 (I have two in RAID0-awesome) or the 500GB 7200.12.

Both are ridiculously fast. They even beat the WD raptor X (10k RPM) in some benches.
