i added a combo ide sata raid card to a win 7 system and attached two ide drives
now the system takes several minutes to boot.
its not the part where the system is identifing the drives
that happens quickly
it s the part with the windows logo on the screen
it just sits there and does its thing and its now like 15 minutes and its still doing nothing
i also tried booting from a cd with win pe on it and it does the same thing
