I have Q6600 CPU and Zwolle loads in 1 min 20 seconds using an ordinary SATA disk or that SSD disk. Resource Manager of Vista reports top load bandwidht of 130 MB/s in both cases, although the SSD disk should be able to exceed 200 MB/s. It looks like my CPU is not capable of consuming data in higher rate. So finally I took the SSD disk into another use and put back the SATA disk. I have a two disk configuration: one disk contains cache (and backups) and the other one all the rest.

The first time that you load a sample set, or if you load it via the 'Organ | Load organ, adjusting rank audio output routing', or via the Design tools menu, Hauptwerk will load from the original raw samples and regenerate the sample set cache, which will be very slow. However, each time you load it subsequently via the normal 'Organ | Load organ' menu option (as opposed to 'Organ | Load organ, adjusting rank audio output routing') it should load from the sample set cache using Hauptwerk's high-speed multi-core optimised loading mechanism.
Presumably you haven't disabled the high-speed loading mechanism on the 'General settings | General options' screen?
I don't know off-hand how long the Zwolle should take to load, but I would have thought it would be *much* less than four minutes when loading normally from sample set cache.
