E530 - Windows 7 - 10 Minute Load to user login



Trying to fix someone else's computer- Their machine would freeze up before, I suspected an issue with the hard drive or some other hardware. I replaced the hard drive (brand new SSD) and re-installed a fresh copy of windows 7 professional. I think this machine also has another SSD (16GB) but I have changed the boot sequence to prioritize the new one.


Once logging into windows, everything is fine. However, it takes approximately 10 minutes every time to pass the Windows 7 loading screen (with the shiny flag). Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a possibility I have missed installing an old driver and it is looking for it? Or is this indicative of another piece of hardware failing?


I'm assuming that this is not a hardware issue anymore as if you boot into safe mode it does not take 10 minutes, so some component being loaded in is the culprit.. but how can I find out?


Thanks for your time
