I had a disk read error on my Presario 2108US running XP Home and had to
reformat and reinstall the OS. It now will boot and run fine but it takes 25
minutes to boot. I'm serious, literally 25 minutes to boot. Once booted it
seems to run fine, not slow, connects to the Internet, etc. I looked in the
BIOS settings and didn't see anything that would point to this problem. I
updated all the drivers and that didn't help. Any help you can give me as to
how to fix this boot problem would be greatly appreciated.
