    Roadrunner runs like poop!!

    I am in somewhat of a dilema.. I am running a M10000 with 512 of ram with Windows Xp PRO Retestrak. I have done all of the Tweakhound tweeks and I tried the Minlogon tweek but I was unable to find the NTLDR at c:\.. I even got so desperate that I used the ultra ghetto windows search tool. My problem is that Roadrunner is killing the computer. The system seems to be running really fast but when I launch RR it dies to a slow crawl. I even pulled 1gb of OCZ plat ram out of my desktop and put it in there and it still put the memory usage up to 80-90% Does anyone know of any other good tweaks? Optimizations? or have I screwed up somewhere?

    Thanks,

    NTLDR is on the root of your system drive. You need to show all files to see it in folder options

    Make sure you do not have a port set for XM (IN RR config) if you have no receiver installed.

    you don't need to do anything to NTLDR to run MinLogon, but it sounds like you've got other problems that MinLogon won't fix.

    i have the same problem.
    At first RR runs good, but then it gets slower and slower. and than i can't do anything anymore because it takes about 5 min for eich button to load.

    i am waiting for a solution.

    i also got 512 mb and running the epia m10000

    no, the logo does work properly. It does not stutter or something like that it goes smooth.
    only the buttons do respond 5 min later and loading next song takes an hour the jump to the next song. These kind of things.
