Windows 7: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit deseperately slow startup

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit deseperately slow startup

Hi, I'm Andrea from Italy and this is my first post here.
Two weeks ago I've (almost) completely changed the PC's hardware configuration and I've installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

My configuration at now is:

MoBo Asus P5QD Turbo
CPU Intel Quad Q9400
8GB Ram
ATI Radeon HD4800 Graphic Card
Sound Balster Audigy 4 Player Audio Card
I've also enabled the AHCI via BIOS

I'm having a serious issue with win 7: it's very very very very slow to startup (with startup I mean the time between the PC power and its complete operativity (O.S. loaded, complete user control avaiable and so on)).
I own an "old" hard disk and I've already purchased a new one and I'm waiting for the delivery but in my opinion the "only" HD isn't the whole cause of this slowness.
I know that the 64 bit versions of Win are quite "sensitive" regarding the drivers so I suspect that the main reason colud be the drivers particulary the Sound Blaster Drivers (downloaded directly from the creative site) My Sound Blaster Audigy Player 4 is "very" old too. I suppose (or I hope because I've spent a lot of money when I bought it a year ago) that the problem could not depend form my graphic card/drivers, HD4800 isn't "old".
My other peripherials are:
- plain scanner Epson Perfection 8400
- Color Laser Printer HP Laserjet 1600
- Aiptek graphic tablet

At now I've installed only the O.S. and Office 2007

Someone have some hint/solution for this problem?
Thanks and regards
Andrea

Hi Andrea and welcome


Does it take too long when you boot into safe mode (F8)?

Uh, interesting question! I've never tried to boot into safe mode. That's a good idea to have proof of drivers issue, isn't it? Isn't there a software running Win 7 64 bit to analyze the startup performances? I remember a software developed by Microsoft for the early version of Win XP...Some other hints?

Thank a lot!!
