Windows 7 on SSD taking over two minutes to boot!

I'd thought SSDs were supposed to be incredibly fast but my one (a Samsung 840 EVO 120GB) is anything but. This is a fresh install (fully updated) and its taking over two minutes to boot. I'd think that was a slow time on an HDD, let alone an SSD.

Have I missed something? Was there something I was supposed to do when I installed Windows that I didn't know about? I'm quite disappointed and very confused.

EDIT: Just installed the latest version of the the Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology Driver Software and it now takes about 5 seconds. Weird. Oh well, here's hoping it stays that way!
