I would appreciate some help on an issue I have with Windows 2000 Professional.
This O/S is a new full installation with a new computer I have, and came with SR1 installed.
I recently downloaded and installed SR2 with no problems, except that the boot up time from "Starting Windows 2000" to the completion of the boot up is now considerably longer. It now takes 3 to 3.5 minutes as opposed to approx 0.5 to 1 minute when SR1 was installed. Appart from this, the system operates normally, and I`ve not installed any additional software. Is there a registry change or some alteration available to speed up this time, or is it normal with this service release. The cpu I have running is an Athalon 1.4 gb Thunderbird, with 512 mb of PC2100 ram and a 64mb G3 video card (3D Power)
Thanks for any suggestions anyone could offer on this.
