I have started to use CF on a new PC. I remember with my old PC, I found a mod in one of these threads to boot the PC straight into CF (it seriously reduced my start up time, took about 8-10 seconds). All I remember is that it was a zip file, specifically for CF, and it just required you to replace a few files on the C:\ drive. I have tried searching the forums but I can't find the same thread (have also tried FluxMedia). Can someone post a link?
Not quite. The original tool I had removed the Windows Boot Screen, Logon, Desktop...everything. Like, power on, BIOS would load, and then it would say 'Loading CF'. As I said before, the whole process was loaded and ready to go in under 10 seconds.
I dont' recall this... I hope someone posts and finds it, sounds nice...
Found it David! Back to the good ol' 8 sec boot
I did make a mistake, this is used when resuming from hibernation, not a cold boot. However, I have put a link to this brilliant app on my site (I did not make it, all credit to bishooman).
You can download it from: http://sugar05.no-ip.com/CarPC/CFBootUtil.rar
Paste the app in your C:\ directory and run it (make a backup). Enjoy!
Note: Only tested with XP SP2.
Hm, not working here. Maybe caused of my german system? (c:/Programme/...). Simply nothing happens when i press Patch.
I can't either... I would like to know what all it changes and if it has an undo command...
Also sense Centrafuse already has a set as shell mode option within the application now, I think this just fixes the image for the return from hibernation screen and bootup screens...
If so I would love that code to make that an option during the Centrafuse install...
