Hi,

Ive recently installed XP Pro, and it takes around 3:30 minutes to boot up. Ive looked up all the other posts in this forum about the problem but none have helped me.

What happens is, it gets to the XP loading screen, and the scrolling bar pauses about every 30 seconds and after about 3:20 minutes the lights light up on my usb modem, USB MIDI interface and scsi burner, and my CD rom drive starts spinning then it boots up.

My system is

AMD Athlon 1.3 GHz
Asus A7M 266 Motherboard
512 MB Crucial Technology P133 SDRAM
30 GB IMB Deskstar hard drive
Asus 7700 series Geforce 2 GTS
Creative Labs soundblaster Live Platinum
Adaptec SCSI card (forgot which model no)
Yamaha CRW 8824 burner (SCSI)
Asus 50speed CR ROM
Acatel Speedtouch ADSL modem (USB)
Steinberg MIDEX 8 MIDI interface (UBS)

I tried BootVis but that didnt speed up the boot time either.

So if anyone can help ill be extremely grateful,

Thanks in advance!!!!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
