    Slow Setup (SP1)

    So I'm putting Windows on my test system which (just built) is a 2.6HT P4, 1G RAM, CD/DVD writer, Adaptec 2940UW and 36Gb SCSI drive and it is taking ages ... sits at a screen at the bottom of which it says "Setup is Starting Windows". This has happened before with another system (can't remember when) and that previous experience tells me that it will, eventually, reach the next screen (which I think is just prior to the [F8] License agreement screen). Can anyone tell me why it does this and any way that I can avoid it?

    Scratch That!

    It would appear it was because I had improperly terminated the drive (I had active termination on the end of the cable) and when I switched it for a non terminated cable it all worked fine ... duh (sorry)!
