    Long Boot Time to Install Disk

    With a formated hard drive on a Dell Dimension 2350, the Vista Home Premium
    Install Disk took eight minutes to get to the first screen. I subsequently
    cleaned out all cards from PCI slots and disabled everything I could in the
    BIOS and got the same results. Any thoughts or what could be causing this?

    Did you format the restore partition?

    Sorry, not familiar with "cross" versus "multiple" terminology.
