If it takes "hours to get to the login screen" your friend has either a lot of patience or is exaggerating. Tell him to run Defrag as this is necessary following an upgrade to SP1. He may also find that it helps to run this app BootVis www.microsoft.com/hwdev/platform/performance/fastboot/default.asp

As for the missing DVD tell him to take this link and look in the Problems section for a regfix that should fix the problem www.aumha.org/a/xpcd.htm

Okay, it's like this, i didn't like how he worded it.

When the dvd is plugged in, it takes forever to log into windows xp (with sp1) and when unplugged, it's normal
And it's detecting his dvd as a removable device and cannot read any cds or dvds at all...
