My System - Windows XP(SP2) AMD XP 1700+ 512Mb RAM

Hi,

I have just replaced my "failing" 40Gb Maxtor boot disk with a 160Gb Seagate drive.

Using Seagate "Disk Wizard" software I duplicated my old disk info (about 30Gb)onto my new drive via an external USB2 caddy.

I then replaced my faulty drive with my new Seagate drive.

Everything went well and my PC works exactly as it did before except for the fact that it takes an extra 30 seconds to boot up?

My PC used to take about 60 seconds to fully boot up and now takes 90 seconds.

The new drive is formatted as NTFS whilst the old one was FAT32 could this affect my boot up time?

This is no real problem as everything else works fine , but I am was just wondering if one of you computer "experts" could explain why it is taking longer to boot.
