    My screen stays dark after boot. The HD is apparently working so I let it go
    on. After hours, I find the PC in "sleep", I turn it on and it works. How can
    I avoid that incredibly long wait before I get a screen? This happens every
    time I boot in RC1. I have a dual boot with XP as the default.

    I have set up RC1 since a couple of days now and I have the same problem. I
    didn't install any thing new - i think.
    This is a seriously unacceptable bug, crash, incompatibility.
    I rebooted, did a F8 and started up again in safe mode. That went fine. So I
    think it's got something to do with the new driver update install for the
    SATA RAID I got via the Windows Update Mgr. So I'm gonna try and uninstall
    that update tonight and let you know.

    It might be because you have a usb memory stick in the compu when you start
    up. I had that problem with XP that it took a long time to load windows.
    I even restored the system to two days ago, and also removed the SATA RAID
    driver, but neither helped. Will report if removing usb stick helps.
