  • I have similar symptoms on my machine, just the other way round: I can't cold-boot into Windows. If I try, it takes about ten minutes (literally) and behaves very sluggishly afterwards. First I need to start Linux and stay there for a while, like starting X, the browser...till, I suspect, the machine reaches a certain temperature. I have no other explanation why I need to spend at least 30 min before I can boot Windows.

    I know the reason though: my first harddrive (the one for Win) is damaged. Under Linux I have to turn off DMA and 32bit I/O for this device, otherwise Linux will hang very soon and I need SysReq key-sequences to re-live it.

    Anyway, it'd be far more annoying if I first had to boot Windows to get Linux running so I don't care that much.
