Default DH57dd/core i3 slow boot, slow wake up

I have a DH57dd, core i3 system running Wxp. It has 4GB RAM and a 1TB disk that is more than 95%
empty. It takes at least 50% longer to boot and to wake from S3 standby than my old 865PERL, P4
2.8GHz system running the same OS. The old one has 2GB Ram and a 500GB disk that is 90% empty.

Is this slowness to be expected for some reason? Any way to speed it up?
Thanks.

Did you install the Windows XP from scratch on the new machine, or did
you copy it over from the old machine? In either case, run the BootVis
program to speed up its boot times.
