The pc was very slow in installation and finally finished the process but the pc booted up slow .Had go thru the forum and notice some people suggested the following:
1) disable the floppy if don't have
2) disable the usb controller
3) press F5 during installation
4) remove 2G of ram (as mine had 4G)
Had done 1 to 3 but no changes .When I remove 2G of ram there's a vast improvement of speed in booting. So I fixed in 2G of ram in re-do installation of the win 7 os . plug back 2 more G of ram in hopefully it will recognised as upgrade of ram. But the pc still booted up very slowly(about 45mins) Can the Motherboard hit by any virus to slow down the process in install and boot up.
The specs as following:
MSI P6N SLI motherboard
Core2duo E6550 2.33GHz
4 G OCZ Reaper series PC2 6400
Win 7 64bits OS
Can someone helps on the problem I encounter.
I would also be checking for a bios update at the MSI site if you find the hard drive is ok - see below:
Have you tested the hard drive for errors - download a hard drive diagnostic tool from the manufactures site of the drive eg Seagates (Sea tools for windows) to confirm a failing drive - and if it fails the tests and its still under warranty have it replaced for no cost - you can try a short test first and if passes you will have to do the long test, however if they run slow you will have to use the dos test, and burn the ISO to a cd see below:
Seagate provide a tool ( Sea tools dos) that zeros the drive which literally does that, as it returns the drive to new and requires initializing again before you can reuse it. It will also do the long and short tests mentioned above.
Still think its the memory incompatibility for an unknown reason, or in need of a bios update - however, if anything is corrupted to do with the boot zeroing the drive removes it all.
