Try MS Bootvis. It is a tool that optimizes the boot process by re-arranging the boot files.
After u installed Bootvis. Open it.
Trace->Optimize System.
Ur PC will reboot. Now wait for a few minutes till Bootvis finishes optimizing ur system.

To speed up your boot time:

I'm not exactly sure if it's this way in english versions of XP because I am translating it from Dutch.

Start>control panel>system>advanced>restart and recovery settings>you will see two numbers under your list of Operating Systems. Change those numbers to half of what they are now. Keep going until you like your bootup speed. I've turned my numbers down to 3 and 5 seconds.

Hope that works for you.

That doesn't fix the problem. This is a hack to decrease the amount of time the system waits on boot for the user to manually pick an OS from boot.ini to boot into.

99% of the time, it'll have no effect whatsoever, and the people that it does effect usually can work out how to fix it for themselves..

As far as this BootViz program goes, haven't used it myself but sounds like a fair idea.
