  • HMM slow boot up?!

    ok so i have an old 366 mhz emachines computer im installing in the car.
    it used to boot up really fast
    i timed it at around 30 seconds form turn on to playing music.

    however now it stays at the emachines boot up screen for at least 2 mins then it continues on to the windows loading screen.

    anyone know why it does this?
    do i need to change anyhting in the bios since i took out the floppy and Cd dirve?

    ah... easy one. disable your secondary IDE controller (if that is where your cd used to be) so that the bios doesn't try to look there for a device. Same thing with the floppy controller, but windows might have an issue with that.
