I have a hand build P300 with a Mitsumi CDROM as Secondary Master, then a Memorex CRW-1622 as Secondary Slave.
Upon startup I get the Win98 splash screen briefly, then I get a black screen for EXACTLY 30 seconds, then my Memorex CRW-1622 CD Writer light blinks, then I get the Win98 Desktop. I have unhooked the Memorex and left the Mitsumi connected and I get the same 30 second delay.
I have looked around on the internet and can find no reason for this delay on boot up. Any help would be appreciated.
