Default Win2K startup screen lag?

I just done a clean install of win2k and everything is in excellent order except one thing. every time I startup or restart, my win2k splash screen lags. The bar indicator at the bottom of the screen seems to be stuck on around 50 percent for it seems 2 minutes. Then all of a sudden I hear the hard drive spin back up and it jumps from 50 percent to 100 in just seconds and boots right up. The system itself runs great, and shutdown is smooth also. I'm not sure whats going on and hope someone would be kind enough to help.

30gig quantum fireball hd
512mb sdram pc133
amd duron 1.6ghz
SiS chipset
ami bios
52x cdrom drive
8x iomega burner

Not the fasted to say the least but it serves the purpose most times.
