    What have you got loading on startup in XP? Also, attaching external drives or other storage devices will delay Windows startup as the OS scans all such devices as it's starting.

    Regards.

    hiya


    hold down F8 on boot and pick the option that allows you to choose 1 by 1 the drivers and system files that are loaded into memory. then check what is the culprit and deal with it booting in safe mode.
