So the problem is pretty simple. I've been fixing pcs and programming for years now and thought that i could fix anything, but now I've found a bottleneck of all problems I've fixed. Basically, my old pc, really good actually (4 cores @ 3 gHz each, 4 gb of 800 mhz memory and a HD4670) used to boot up Windows XP Professional with 30 seconds, 40 seconds top. Now I decided to make use of it again and started by uninstalling unnecessary junk i had there. After restarting, it took pc 30 minutes to boot!!!! And so it has been for a day now. Ive tried recovery consoles and replacing potentially harmed windows files but nothing helps. Ive had this problem before once actually but i dont remember how i managed to fix it back then. My guess is that i might be corrupted driver slowing the boot time to 30 minutes. Please help and ask details!
