I have three identically configured Soyo KT-333 Dragon Ultra Platinum based Athlon 2200+ systems running WinXP Pro. One of them displays a progress black/white progress bar for 3 to 5 seconds when booting up (like Win2K does). It is visible just before the Windows XP Professional splash screen displays. I have never seen this on any other WinXP Home or Pro system. Does anyone have any thoughts as to why this happens? I always get nervous when identical units behave differently.
