I added a Samsung EVO 250GB SSD. Cloned previous boot drive which was a 128GB SSD to it using Acronis True Image.
Now, when I boot, it sits there for 30 seconds flashing the hard drive light then proceeds to boot normally. All BIOS settings are default.
Lenovo IdeaCenter K450
Intel 4th Gen i7, 16GB of ram
Bootign from the 128GB SSD was fine, no obvious delays.
Any idea what might be causing this?

Thanks for responding.
How do I uninstall Intel Rapid Start?
When I look in Programs and Features under Windows 8 Pro X64, all I see are:
Intel Graphics Driver
Interl Management Engine Components
Intel SDK for OpenCL - CPU Only Runtime Package

I found the problem. I was going to reinstall the Samsung software that came with the SSD, but when the optical drive would not open. I rebooted and pressed the open button during boot and it came up quickly, even though the drive still did not open.
Shutdown and checked the cable and power connector. They "seemed" okay, but now it boots normally and I can open the drive. Problem must have been a timeout in BIOS when it was looking for bootable devices. I do have the optical drive in the boot selection list.
Thanks for your assistence.
