It could be doing a scan disk in the background on every boot. On one system I built using windows 2000(XP may have the same problem), if I had the S.M.A.R.T. hard drive option turned on(or off- can't remember which way it was) in bios, the OS would do a scan disk every time it booted, even if the drive was fine. As soon as I changed the setting to the opposite the scan disk problem went away. It's possible you are having that problem. Try switching the setting for the SMART drive. It was a year and half ago that I ran into the problem so I can't remember which way was causing the problem, but hopefully it'll help.
