Slow boot and operating

  willod 15:47 29 Sep 2003

My partners pc crashed and would not reboot. I tried to reinstall xp pro. It was very slow and would not go past the 39mins to go stage.
I took the hard drive home and put it in my pc. xp loaded perfectly and operates perfectly.
When I put the drive back in my partners pc it booted eventually (at least 5 mins) and operates so slow it is useless. Anybody any idea what could be at fault.
