Ultraviolet I see you are using the same motherboard as me with the only diffrence really being I'm using a X2 Dual core cpu. Using that board did you encounter any problems with load times with Windows or any other SATA related issues effecting performance?
Currenlty I am experiencing anything between 2 - 5 mins to load Windows, I wounder when you installed XP did you use any 3rd party SATA drivers or did the installation process detect the Seagates without them?
Nah my win xp loads real fast mate, and no, its not legit.
I used the sata drivers from the asus website.
