    Have an ECS 848P-A with P4 1.6Ghz CPU and a GB of RAM. The unit seems to
    work OK except very slow boot up time. It takes 1 minute 10 sec to go
    from power up to "detecting IDE drive". The time between drive detection
    and starting WinXP is reasonable (maybe 1~3 secs). However, WinXP took
    another 3~4 minutes before the PC is ready to be used. What does the
    BIOS do during the 1 min 10 sec?
