  • Boot Times.

    So first off let me start by saying I'm not exactly sure where this should be so mods please move this to the best spot. Now lets get into it. I'm in the process of planning my own CarPC as are many other on this forum. So everyone who has had a CarPC for years or is new to the game post your set up here with your boot/shutdown time. Post a video if you have it. I'm just curious to see what people have and I'm sure everyone else is. Plus who doesn't like a little friendly competition so see who is the fastest.

    -Motherboard
    -CPU
    -Ram
    -Hard Drive
    -Boot/Shut Down time


    *If i forgot anything in the hardware department let me know its 4:22am and im a little tired*

    1 - There's already a thread about boot times. Multiple threads, I believe.

    2 - There's more to boot time than just the hardware combination. Configuration of the BIOS and the OS have a big impact on boot times, as well. You can have two PCs with identical hardware that have radically different boot times, all due to BIOS configuration alone.

    3 - What about Resume from hibernate? Much faster than a cold boot. Something to consider.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

      as well as what peripheral devices are you running, what software are you running, etc., etc.

      I can dust off my old copy of BeOS and it'll blow away everyone's boot times here... but guess what? I can't do much with it...

        is there a sticky or a link to these threads? I'm also interested. More so from a hardware standpoint though. It's sort of like home buying, you can always change the rugs (bios) if you want, but you can't easily change the structure (hardware).

        I suppose I'll make another analogy this time to car buying. What's a good starting car (mobo), that can be modded easily and starts with good stats.


        Keep in mind some of us are new to the game and haven't been around following the hobby for a while. I search like a crack head daily, and unfortunately most of the threads are 2-3 years old; and as we all know, technology evolves almost monthly. So these older threads may be irrelevant.

          BeOS is fast! But yeah, dead and unusable. I hear haiku is getting better tho... Probably still has a long way to go.

          Doing a search for "boot times" will go a long way. Here's a couple threads I know about:

            I was going to say i just saw this a month ago. but I guess this is a new one

            ah, the never ending repeated threads. How I do love reading the same thing over and over again.

            I did hear today that windows 7 had better boot times then vista. And something about a feature in advanced to use multi core cpu's to boost boot times. Might not help us. ut would be good if you have a quad core like me.


            edit: just checked xp. look slike i can use 4 cpu's for boot up. ill post back if it is faster

              5 seconds of searching could answer a lot of these questions. Xp vs win7 is a toss up. On newer hardware win7 will usually blow it away (better utilization of multiple cores), on older systems the reverse is true.
