Topic: Black Screen Before Windows Now
I used GParted LiveCD to uncheck the boot boxes to my extra HDDs that just contain backup files. I had set them mistakingly to Active. Anyway, this worked well. The only issue is now when the PC boots between when the Windows Logo (has scroll bar in) and the Desktop comes up I get a black screen for about 15 seconds. Any idea what is causing this ? I used to get an immediate desktop popup...delay was maybe one or two seconds.
Again, my config is one C: HDD with Windows XP Pro Sp2 O/S on it.....3 other IDE HDDs with MPEG files of this same mobo IDE controller......three other HDDs off a Promise ATA133 PCI IDE card.
