    ASUS G751JM clone HDD to SSD help

    Hi there! I am having some problems with my transition from the stock HDD to a Samsung 850 Pro 256GB SSD. This is my first time working with an SSD and I would appreciate any help that can be provided. I've read a few of the forum posts here about cloning to SSD's, and I've followed the steps to do it, but it still seems to take forever for my computer to start up (by forever, I mean about 50-60 seconds). My stock HDD took 71 seconds to load (not a big difference, hence me being here.

    ASUS G751JM-BHI7t25 (only upgrade I have made to the machine was adding 16GB of RAM (2x 8GB Crucial BLQL.9J) putting me at 24GB RAM. No issues when using HDD.

    This is what I did...

    Step 1: Install Samsung Data Migration using provided CD
    Step 2: Plug in Samsung 850 Pro 256GB SSD using USB 3.0 to SATA III connector (Brand: Apricorn; Purchased from Best Buy)
    Step 3: Run Data Migration
    Step 4: Safely removed SSD, shut down laptop, removed HDD and placed SSD where the HDD was.
    Step 5: Turned laptop back on (1 minute wait)

    *NOTE* With my HDD, as soon as the computer is booted to the start menu, I could start typing the name of a program and it would immediately populate the list on the right side of the screen. With the SSD, when I get to the start menu from a fresh boot and start typing the name of a program, the computer seems to lock up for almost a minute and then the right side of the screen starts populating search results.

    Step 6: Install Samsung Magician and run program. Magician shows Drive Health: Good. I set OS Optimization to
    Maximum Performance, turned on RAPID Mode, rebooted computer, still takes around 1 minute to get to start menu.

    Am I missing something? Magician says I am connected to SATA III, but I'm not seeing the expected blazing fast boot times that I've read about.

    And I apologize for the wall of text.. Please let me know if I need to provide any additional information and I will get to it as soon as I am able. AND THANK YOU IN ADVANCE
