Windows 7: Win 7 Ultimate / Pro - dual boot - slow!

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
Win 7 Ultimate / Pro - dual boot - slow!


I have 2 x 500GB hard drives, Win 7 Ultimate on one drive, Win 7 Pro on the other.
Win7 pro was only installed yesterday, the dual boot screen didn't show at first until I did a repair install, this fixed that problem but it's really slow booting, takes around 2 - 3 minutes to load.
Ultimate has no problems at all and boots quickly.

Thanks in advance.
