My hardware basics:
700 Athlon processor
2 x 40g WD 7200 ATA100 drives
I use one 40 gig drive specifically for datafiles.
On the primary 40 gig drive, I was loading different operating systems, Win2000 SP2, Whistler, Win 2000 server, etc...
Recently I reformate the entire drive so to start over installing all the operating systems again. I never had problems before, but now it takes over 2 days to install Win2000 or Whistler, and once I get Whistler loaded, it runs as though it has a 50mg processor.
What is the cause, how can I determine the exact cause, and resolution?
