Slow Win7 boot time when NAS is not on.

I just recently built a new computer and installed win 7 professional 32 bit.  I have a NAS that is turned off because i think it is about to fail.  Making all sorts of loud noises and so forth.  When windows loads it stalls with a black screen for a good thirty seconds before taking me to the desktop.  It also warns me that it cannot connect to that NAS.  Before i told windows that it was there it would immediately boot up.  Is there any way to tell it to not try to connect to it?  I know i can just disconnect it within the my computer screen but i didnt want to lose my drive mappings.  Thanks guys.

Hi,

Is this device compatible with windows 7?

I would suggest you to get in touch with the NAS manufacturer to check if there is an option to disable it.

However we can work on the performance issue.

I would suggest you to update the video card drivers. Check this link.

Hope it helps

Answer
No, the only solution is to disconnect it.

You can create a batch file and use the net use command to create a temporary drive mapping when you need it.
