    Hey everyone, more of a general question here, no biggie, but whenever I start my bootcamp Windows XP it always takes a long time to load (over two minutes) it seems to freeze up around the flash screen for these two minutes. Then eventually it will come to the Windows desktop and everything will be snappy, I haven't been around any other bootcamp computers, I wanted to know if that is normal? I know my Dad's regular PC which is much weaker, loads much faster for some reason. Is this normal?
