I have a compaq mini netbook which takes almost 12 min to boot. I thought it was a problem with the OS which i reinstalled, but the problem still has persisted.
Is it normal for it to take that long?
If not please assist me to solve the problem.
Some start-up methods rarely, users perform a system scan by certain protection software before booting to windows. Can you confirm that its just loading Windows that takes too long as not a system scan? Can you try booting to safemode to check on the difference?
