So today my computer decided that instead of the usual 30 seconds or it takes to boot, it would take about 5 minutes. My best guess for this is this error from the event log:





According to the MS help, the drive is not responding within the timeout period, and this could be because of a bad disk in the drive. Both drives are empty and work fine in windows. I have another IDE controller I will try them on, but I was wondering if anybody had any experience with this sort of error or had any suggestions.
