Hello, I activated win7 with success on my asus p5n7a-vm mobo with 8 gb ram and e5200 intel, but I'm getting a serious delay after the post messages. It's just a black screen with a blinking cursor in the top left corner. It hangs there for about half a minute before going to the "starting windows" splash thingy. The whole pc takes about 1min 45 secs to start up from pressing the "on" button to the desktop. Is anyone else having this problem? My old 1.1ghz amd with less than 512 mb ram and win xp takes roughly about 30 secs to start up. Is this difference normal?
