I have a Dell 9100 with Dual Core CPU and 1GB memory running XP Professional. This PC is very slow at boot time. Even once it is up it is slow and constantly making churning noise. The hardware test reports that all the hardware is functioning with not failures. I came to know about Bootvis which helps debug and detect issues that occur during the startup. When i ran the utilitiy it is complaining about "Number of Physical drives in the trave file is 0" when i am trying to analyze the bootvis trace file. Has anybody encountered this error or know about this error. Would appreciate any help since Dell is refusing the support since this falls under software and not hardware.
