Found this in the March 2005 CPU mag. For those with the Asus P4C800-E motherboard, you can speed up the boot time considerably by doing the following: If you have fewer than two SATA devices, you don't need the Promise PDC20378 controller. (You've probably seen this in the bootup sequence if you have the logo display turned off.) In the BIOS, Under Advanced open the Onboard Devices Configuration page, tun off the Promise controller. Also, if you don't need the parallel port, serial ports, game port, or IEEE 1394 port, turn those off. I just did that, it made a nice difference in boot time.
