I have question in hopes that someone here posses the answer too. First off let me explain the situation. I Modified my MSI K9A2(V1) Bios 1.8 with the Slic 1.3.1 Tool. I Choose Dell Slic 2.1 and SLP. Everything went perfect Bios Modified successfully. I then Flashed My bios In DOS to the new Modified Version with the tool MSI gives in there bios downloads AFUD4281.exe, It's an AMI Bios flasher I believe. I then created a custom OEM Vista x64 SP2 DVD with the Dell Certificate and Cd key inserted. Installation of Vista went perfect and as to be expected it was already Auto Activated. Now Herein Lies the problem. After my system Bios boots, It takes 20 Sec from that point(blank Screen) before I see the Green Progress Bar in Vista. Prior to the Slic 2.1 Bios Modification, I had an old Copy of Vista SP2 that was using Vista Loader which only took 4 sec before I saw the Green Progress Bar. Does anyone here have any ideas as to why this is occurring, what is causing the delay in the boot process?
