Help with XP BOOT

I'll make it short.I bought an SSD for FASTER booting times and it's just AMAZING. Though i'm still not satisfied with some things. I switched to winXP due to some issues in windows 7. Here when i restart the PC, when the Windows Splash screen appears, the PC remains IDLE for like 5 seconds. I mean its IDLE, No processor usage/ No HD usage/ and NO Service loading. It's just annoying me. And right after 4 seconds the SSD picks up and the desktop comes up INSTANTLY.

Here's a screenshot i took off the BOOTVIS trace, You can see the 5-seconds IDLE phase in it -

Kindly help me fall in love for XP again.

I don't know what you're trying to suggest me here. Can you please elaborate?

But your post was so short that I can't see why it would do that. Many forget that there are some hundred reasons for such a delay. I tossed out a common one in hopes you would either have that one or tell more.

There are a few members that want the many hundred items listed but this is all about the details. There are so little that we are going to start slowly (like this PC.)
