Windows 7 setup time

Hi there
First of all, sorry about my bad english, I'm form Latvia.
So, When I install windows 7 or vista from dvd or usb flash drive, I have to wait realy long time ~ 15-20 min till it start setup. I have E8500 processor and 4G of Ram, but my sisters laptop with Dual core 2ghz and 3g of ram setup starts in few seconds, why so? Perhaps because I haven't sata DVD but then why it's so slow with USB flash drive, if useing same flash drive sisters laptop setup starts so fast?
I realy hop you did understood me, I'm realy bad at english :P
img so you understand whitch setup I mean

Sometimes it takes time. I have that problem with one machine here.

Does it complete the install? That is the true test.

If not, test HD using diagnostics/repair scan HD from the HD maker's Suport Downloads webpage: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287

Run memtest86 or Windows Memory Diag. to test memory.

Have you tried flashing the BIOS with newer firmware if available?

MrT,

Were you doing a clean install?

You are correct. The install should not take so much time to get started.

Now you have been asked several different questions. The answers to those questions would be helpful.

MrT,
Go to the ASUS website. There you will find the latest and greatest info on your ASUS plus instructions on updating the BIOS. Please follow the instructions from ASUS.
