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?

d_family, Jan 1, 7:14am
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.

dunedin_ree, Jan 1, 7:16am
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?

d_family, Jan 1, 7:33am
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)

Go into the bios and disable the USB device as a boot option
