Hello,
     Used Samsung Magician to copy my Sata EVO SSD to my new NVME 950 EVO.  Now it takes longer to get into BIOS and to get to the Windows 10 sign in screen.  Is this normal?  Should I do a fresh install on the NVME? According to Magician everything is working at correct speed once in Windows.  Am I missing a setting in Bios? I followed Z270 Manual instructions and also put NVME in bottom slot (#3). I know it disables 2 of the SATA ports on Intel side.  I have my old EVO and a HDD on the 2 working ports and a DVD drive in the Marvell side.
Thanks for any help!

    You're running the latest bios? Is everything slow with older bioses too?

    I'm running 1.03.  This is a replacement board from EVGA.  My original motherboard got messed up when I upgraded the bios, so I'm wary of upgrading this one to 1.05.  I'll have to check tonight about the other bios on the switch.

    Was the DVD or anything else on the Marvell controller before? That will add a few seconds to boot time as it has to initialize that controller separately. 
     
    Do you have Fast Boot enabled on the boot tab in the BIOS?

    Unplugged all drives except NVME and disabled everything I could.  Now its working right.  When I enable Marvell SATA with only DVD plugged into it, then it goes slow again.  Not just a few seconds but about 20 seconds.  Hard drive light starts blinking on my case but it takes about 20 seconds before the NVME light starts blinking.  Fast boot is enabled.

    I guess its normal to take that long when you enable the Marvell controller.  Same speed as my X58 classified 3 now.

    yes the bios takes some time to load, it beeps and chirps quite a bit. as for copying with samsung software, when i did the same thing it was running slugish, did a clean install and it was screaming fast. not sure why but even when i tried using third party software to image it it did the same.
