I am trying to create a new database on SQL 2005.  I have tried to do this through enterprise mgr and QA and it never completes.  I have to kill the process.  When I go and look at the process I notice that the wait type is the following when it is trying to create the new database:

ASYNC_IO_COMPLETION

any ideas?

How big is the database you are trying to create and what kind of hardware is the database running off of?

Even though this might not be your issue, perhaps it can shed some light for creation of databases and disk hardware bottlenecks.
