Do you have a UEFI system and did you install windows using EFI (NOT MBR/BIOS CD boot/emulation)?

EDIT: No, I've just looked your motherboard up on ASUS and it is strictly BIOS, NOT UEFI, you cannot use secure boot.

Well booting seems a bit faster not very long to get to desktop feel that some apps that run on start up off my mechanical drive is slowing me down once in desktop probably shift them over to the SSD
