Default How long does your pc take to boot vista

Mine took about a minute to get to the desktop. But the hard drive activity is on for another 5minutes. What about you?

About 40 seconds from password input to desktop with all the icons in the taskbar loaded. However, an additional 60-90 seconds before I'd even consider selecting anything. If I do, it's slow as balls. If I wait the 60-90 seconds, it seems to be more efficient then.

About 30-35 seconds as well, but without opening my 2 external hard drives (750GB total capacity), if I have them opened it takes about 2-3 minutes to boot up.
