Win XP Pro will have problems booting if the DNS server on your network is not providing the correct DNS servers thru the DHCP server.

Win XP is very depend on DNS to boot quickly.

I was just at a client yesterday that took 6 mins to boot win XP until i fixed the DNS and DHCP. Now it only takes 30 secs for it to boot.

With XP machines you need to set the DNS to the Server IP Address. The server will then provide DNS services to the XP machine.

This should get you going again.
