Unhappy Trying to identify long boot times in XP with Bootvis.....

sponsored links

 
I've just run Bootvis (set it to run twice) to see what's slowing down my boot times.

The first problem that stands out a mile is a driver delay on SCSIPORT.SYS which is delaying for 33 seconds! Why?! My drivers are all eide, thought I've got an Abit KT7A Raid mobo, with one disk on that.

There's also a few long delays, like 20 seconds a time, where there's nothing happening. The total boot time takes 126 seconds, which is clearly not good. How can I get it to miss the gaps and speed up the driver delays?

Got the same problem mate. When I first installed XP it ran fine then after a while it did that, nothing major yet but bloody annoying!

Worked out that the scsiport.sys was related to the Raid drivers. I've updated those, and that's reduced boot time to just over a minute (by half).

There's another now - NPDRIVER - which is delaying for 20 secs. What is this? I can't work out what it is, and a search for the file comes up with nothing.....

i've also noticed mines a lot slower and also found it to be Symantic software

all i have to do now is figure out which Norton program it is (anti-virus, firewall, Utilities).

Try running MSCONFIG and selectively disable what you don't need from the Startup and Services tabs.
