Like many of you I was having slow 3-4 minute boot times. I found a solution that worked for me. Bootvis showed that it was my LAN that was causing the delay. This website suggests setting the tcp/ip settings manually and explains why.

Yes! That is exactly what helped me. Something to do with the DHCP server in XP. And, you'll also notice if you unplug your network cable, it'll boot fine. Just manually specify an IP address and everything will be fine :)
