Re: Vista Slow Start up
Is your laptop plugged in with an external hard drive? Mine does that when I have a USB external drive plugged into my laptop. When unplugged, it boots fast. When plugged in, it boots slowly but I should check the boot order in BIOS to see if it's actually trying to boot from my external drive instead of the hard drive that's in my laptop. If your problem is related to mine, this may help.
