    Have built 2 sytems recently and am having slower boot times on my 3.0 rig with an 875pbz mobo 2 gig 3200 ram, 2 36 raptors in raid 0, striped to 64k.

    The other system with an amd 2700 chip 1.5 3200 ram, gigabyte pro 400 2, and a single wd 40gig 8 meg boot drive boots up far faster than my more expensive rig.

    I'm sure I have everything installed correctly, bios set right etc. I am using a promise ide card that came with a 200 gig maxtor drive, could this be slowing the boot time ? I will take it out to test.

    Anyone know of any issues with this board ? I have read the intel tech support responses and have followed them accordingly...

    Thanks, Bruce

    oh win2k !

    Having raid on any boards slows down the boot up time considerably. It does, however, go much faster once in windows.

    Personally I always felt the bootup time was not important anyway. It usually is a matter of seconds between the two and how often do you do it compared to the time actually spent in windows where the time REALLY matters.

    Just my thoughts

    Thanks, that seems to be the nature of the beast here, it does fly when I'm working in windows.
