I just upgraded my cpu to Q8200 from E8400..The booting up time of win 7 is still very slow. Around 2 minutes(recorded by BootRacer) with everything disabled from start up (ie. Antivirus and so on).
After POST, the boot up process just stucked at the animated windows 7 boot up GUI for like 1+ min.
I tried uninstalling all unnecessary programs, disabled all programs from starting up with windows, defragmenting the harddisk and now even formatted the whole harddisk. But seems like it's the same. It could not be the registry problem, because I just formatted the comp.
I own another Q6600 rig, and it just takes less than 1 min to boot up. Any idea?
What is the possible reason behind this ya?
