Windows sometimes, but not always, would freeze at the black screen with the blue dots moving across for five minutes but would eventually load. It happens completely randomly so i can't figure out why. I have a hitachi sata hd so could it be a driver issue or something? Thanks.

that happened to me when i loaded the SATA/RAID driver to XP. Although i only get freeze for like 10-20 seconds. Try loading XP onto the SATA drive without the SATA driver. When i did that it loaded lightning fast.
