I come here because i have a weird problem, i install xp but ever i run updates even cloudy or locally the system disk and network transfer lock in 3 to 4MBps.
if ran hiren’s minixp the transfer of the disk its normal (around 60MBps) thats confirm its software issue.
discarded drivers because i reinstalled arround 15 times in a week and dont install to reduce the posibilities, i dont running an antivirus yet but i start to belive in that cause maybe.
(long history) my desktop die a few monts, because the mobo stops boot, i’m electronic tech so i try to fix it but not joy yet, i recover an very oldie asrock ddr1 agp mobo (775i65g) have 768 mb of ram, and nvidia fx5200 all pieces with new caps, upgraded bios and the system drive its a oldie too hitachi 80gb PATA drive (yes ide) with little 1.5mb of cache, but, i test the drive with victoria hdd in hirens and have a read linear average speed that said earlier, even with partition and disk to disk transfer with teracopy (hitachi 1tb sata 3 in same mobo) i get the same speed being bootleneck the pata drive, so i install xp, align partition with minitool partition wizard and boot en less 40 seconds the first times (no count bios boot because took almost 30 secs to give me video, because its oldie) i desfragment and boot fast like any new win7 pc, obviously i cant try 7 in this mobo, 1 ram 2 i dont have cds or dvds to burn, and its a pain install usb but its the way i using and isn’t compatible at all in this way, so install office programs drivers, even great, i using a offline windows update tool called wsus offline (version 9.2.4 esr thats support xp) and then install the 110-140 updates, after install .net when reboot.
Fails begin, i detected with a monitor soft named moo0 system monitor, its very handy, and customizable, i set to show I/O speed of every drive an header search time (same the hhd light do) and before this run equal like hirens mini xp, but after i have just 4MB read and write speed in system disk, doing same disk to disk file transfer in any way do the same and runing a network file transfer behaves equal even the network folder is in slave data disk (1tb) and disk to disk betwen data disk whenever pata or sata this not happend.
even i downloaded the updates directly windows update i finish in same situation, the only thing i dont try yet its install and download everything to discard rootkit or virus related, without any data disk connected.
any reference could help, and sorry i dont native english speaker.
and i even try actually wepos ready 2009 over xp, its a little less painfull override the incompatibility of usb install.
