Win7 64bits and also Win 7 Bootable CD taking eternity to be loaded.

I bought a wd5000aakx hard drive. It is one of that models that came with Advanced Format Drive.
I did a clean install of Windows 7. Everything was working fine, and loading fast. But one time, after comming back from the suspended mode, after typing the password, it crashed, and I needed to press the reset button.
Another time, after a long time of inactivity time the motinor was turnned off. I pressed a key to turn it on again, and after this the problems started. Everything was completly slow.
I needed to press reset again...
After this Windows is taking a lot of minutes to show the backgroudn with the cursor. I did't have patiance yet to wait for the menus to be loaded (I'm not sure if it will really load).
To increase the problem, I tried to boot from the windows DVD again... And it is completly slow too. I felt asleep waiting for the installation program to start. When I clicked install, everything was completly slow.
So, I think this maybe a hardware problem.
Ubuntu is loading fast from a pendrive.
My HD cable was on the "orange" sata port. (I think its sata II. Is it?)... If I put it on a red port, that I think it's SATA I, windows laads the error check, and the message saying "Trying to repair" remains for minutes and minutes. I did't wait it to be completed also, because I dont know if it will end sometime.

Startup Repair can take a long time to run (3.5 days was reported in one case), but you do need to let it run until it is finished.

Also, it's recommended to run it three times with a reboot between each occurrence.

Oh... I cant wait all that time. I dont think this would solve my problem, as the bootable windows CD where I could run the repair tool is behaving on the same way (It also takes eternity to show the screen with the install now button and repair options).

I will replace my video card to see if it is the problem. Mybe I'll need to reinstall windows again.

In that case, I'm sorry I bothered.

It really does bother me that advice offered in good faith is rejected out of hand for no reason other than you can't be bothered.

Well, I can't be bothered to offer more help, so I wish you luck in finding your own solution.

Sorry seavixen32, if my answer was rude for you. That was not my intention...
Thanks for your suggestion. It`s a good suggestion, but I have no patience to wait, maybe days...

I found one of the possible problems. My motherboard date was on someday of 2002. I changed it to the current date, and now the Windows Installation program could run again. Now i`m reinstalling it... I wish the problem wont come back.

I'm not intending to in anyway insult Seavixen32.

However, my view is that the automatic system repair is not the panacea for all ills. If it grinds on for more than ~30 minutes I say it's time for a system reimage.
Also, if you have a fair idea that your problem is with the boot sequencing use the "Bootrec" command directly from the command prompt. Your problem could be fixed in minutes.

I have found a boot DVD will generally work faster than a boot CD and most boot software is happy on a DVD.
