OMG its taking forever to boot vista...

OMG its taking forever to boot vistaI have just recently installed Ubuntu inside windows so when I boot up I can pick Ubuntu or Vista. Now it suddenly is hanging at the ACER screen for ages and when I boot into Vista it takes forever as well. It never used to do this, so have I screwed something up and if so how can I fix it?

Are you the person that asked how best to try out Linux, and I suggested a Live CD?

geek_dunedin_ree, Jan 1, 8:12 pm

Yes I tried that and I quite liked it so I decided do the basic installation which means I can easily remove if I get sick of it.

geek_d_family, Jan 1, 8:14 pm

Well why don't you easily remove it then.

Just been googling and would the slow boot up be because of my external HDD being plugged in?

geek_d_family, Jan 1, 8:24 pm

Yup that did the trick unplugged my external HDD and all is good now. Booted like it used to. (got my HDD 2 days ago BTW)
