Ubuntu 9.10 grub 2 takes long to load

I have a PC with two hard disks .On first Windows XP installed.On second Windows 7 RC and ubuntu 9.10 installed and working OK.But grub is taking long to load.Earlier when UBuntu 9.04 with earlier version of grub installed there was no such delay.Is it due to two hard diasks and multiboot?.Why I had no difficulty with earlier version.Request guidance in this regard.Thanks
