    eep, I recall that 8MB left over when you partition during the Windows install.. that is probably why it's running a bit slower. I don't know what to say now, once it's gone it's gone. But you might be able to re-partition in that you can resize and add that 8mb back in. I dunno how that would go and what it would do for you, I would Google or browse some MS tech/help forums. Those 8mb are just dead space due to disk geometry so they wouldn't hold any important information.. I would just try to resize your ntfs partition using Partition Magic and try adding that 8mb back in and expiriment with that.
