slow boot

By urok ·
My hp4455 pavillion with a celeron 4ooMHZ processor has just had a new HD put in (WD 20G, 7200RPM) and now when I boot it takes almost 3minutes or more. Seems to hang right before it detects the HD. I have the Bios HD setting set to Auto. I have tried setting it to user with the sectors, size... and all that crap but it still boots incredibly slow. Any ideas???? Scott

slow boot = windows

by gmscne In reply to welp...

I can only assume the computer in question is trying to start windows. This would account for the slowww boot process.
