    Hello all,

    My computer with XP Home SP2 boots much slower, more than 5 minutes (like as if not enough internal memory is installed and it uses the virtual memory -which is NOT the case, I have 1GB DDR installed-), when I attach a Seagate Barracuda SATA 80GB Harddisk to my pc. I have been searching the internet for more than one week now but I still didn't find what is wrong.

    This is what I have done so far:
    -I have checked the harddisk with HDtune, HDDscan, Seatools, mhdd and scandisk and harddrive seems to be ok, no errors have been found.
    -I ran bootvis to do a full analysis but unfortunate I wan't able to create a text file so I used bootlogxp instead. Bootvis: without the 80GB HD attached it boots in 97 seconds (a lot of stuff still needs to load after that) and with the 80GB it needs 201 seconds.

    System without 80GB: see attached file boot xp 20gig
    System with 80GB: see attached file boot xp 80gig

    -I found in the logs many errors but somehow have disappeared recently, I don't get the errors anymore! (Unfortunately in dutch):
