I removed the DVD optical drive and put a SSD in an optical drive caddy (similar to this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2nd-Hard-Drive-Caddy-Adapter-for-Acer-Aspire-5750G-5755G-/280914405128). I have ubuntu installed on the SSD and it works without problem once it's started. The only issue I have is that the boot time of ubuntu seems long (for being on a SSD). It's around two minutes and I expected it to boot kinda instantaneously. I haven't installed a lot of crap since I mostly use ubuntu for school. Do you know what the problem might be? May the problem occur because the SATA port was intended for an optical DVD? Does anyone know anyone who has tried this setup (SSD in caddy) and have the same problem?
NOTE: I have two OS:s: 500gb HDD - Windows 7 60gb SSD (on caddy instead of DVD drive) - Ubuntu GNOME 15.04
EDIT: My hdparm result is:
sudo hdparm -Tt /dev/sdb /dev/sdb: Timing cached reads: 19112 MB in 2.00 seconds = 9564.39 MB/sec Timing buffered disk reads: 980 MB in 3.00 seconds = 326.37 MB/sec
