    OK, did a clean install of xp pro...on restart i get a long boot time...actually it sits a sceen that says INTEL, with bios F2, and a number 58 in the lower right corner. It hangs here for min. not seconds and then finally boots into windows. It was doing this before the clean install.....whats going on?...
    thanks

    Disk identification might be taking a while, I sometimes have that problem with my USB external drive.

    Make sure fast boot is enabled in the bios and that jumpers are set correctly, etc, etc.
