I dont think dual booting is an issue, as im triple booting xp,vista & 7 with no problems on each of them.
Just remember to do old to new in that order.
Other wise they corrupt certain system files in each setup.
I hope you can get this problem resolved.
But you mentioned you have a pentium D @ 3GHz, you certainly have a decent enough graphics card for aero grahics.
Maybe its just your man in the box......?

How to perform a clean boot procedure to determine whether background programs are interfering with a game or a program that you currently use
Thank you for advising the clean boot method, although I did know about it, I must admit I learned it from your post several months, ago. So nice to teach, when teaching is the best way to learn.

do you use AHCI sata mode by any chance? I recently discovered this causes slow boots on my machine in windows 7 on many drivers.

Set the SATA controller to native IDE mode.

It seems ACHI setting does not work most of the time and can cause issues.

Hi

I'm having a similar problem too. Booting only takes 5 minutes at the most.

I CLEANED install Win 7 from XP. (A complicated move, but had to be done)

It was running absolutely fine for the first few weeks. until recently its started hanging around at the windows 7 logo, at the start up

Then once that passes, it takes for ever for my desktop to load up. I have less then 15 Icons, have aprox 5 - 7 start up programmes that all require LOW memory to use.

I'm giving SFC /Scannow a try and i'll post back.

Thanks

Something Else

Something else here I have ran across issues with HP printer software causing issues like these i have traced it back to a service that is trying to start when Windows starts do this to try to sort out this issue.

1. right click on the task bar and choose properties
2. click on the start menu tab
3. click customize
4. scroll down that list and look for run command check that and close those menus
5. click on the start orb
6. click run
7. type msconfig and hit enter
8. go to the services tab
9. check the box at the bottom left coner that says hide all microsoft services
10. if you have an HP printer uncheck the entry's for HP if you don't have an HP printer I would disable all of them
11. click apply
12. click ok
13. restart and see if it starts normal if so you can go back to the services tab and re-enable the services one at a time and restart till you find the one that is causing the issue.
