  • How quick is yours?

    Hi All

    Just for general info here, I want to find out how quickly everyones car PC boots up, ready to play music/etc.
    I am trying to see if the O/S makes a huge difference. ATM, I am using Win2k due to driver issues with some of my hardware.
    Post your approx boot up time, hopefully in secs (unless it is baaaaddd :P) and your O/S and lets compare.

    When I can, I will post mine :P

          About 15 Seconds from hibernate to music. About 40 seconds from cold boot to music (maybe a little less since I scrapped symantec anti-virus real time scanner).

          I'm running a P3 667 MHz with 192MB of ram, and WinXp Pro.

            15-17 seconds to boot to playing media. And maybe 5-10 seconds to shutdown w/ hibernate..but sometimes I just kill the power so 1 second shutdown.
            Mine needs to be updated.

                @samc, 15-17 secs to boot, cold? How are you guys getting these kinds of time. I get nearly 15 seconds just for post and thats with self-check disabled, all the built-in devices disabled (except video, com, usb, and the first ide). I have just finished optimizing XP following the guides found here and elsewhere (stopped most services, removed a bunch of crap, etc) and cold boot, including post still takes 50+ seconds. From hibernation (512MB) it's still 30+ seconds to get to the desktop (not counting loading frodoplayer, etc). Resume from suspend is about 7 seconds to music.

                        Amazing Rando, if your post takes 30 seconds, there may be an error. Go into your CMOS and set any hard drive channels that don't have anything attached from Auto to None. Also, make sure it is set to quick mode (different name in different BIOSs) and that it isn't counting all the memory.

                          I'm using xplite and I striped out evyhing I did not need and then I ran bootvis. Boot up from hibernate is even faster

                            Boot cold: 30s
                            Return from hibernate: 15s

                            Post is reduced by turning off all hardware not in use such as the floppy.

                              I said 15, not 30 and already mentioned that I have all of the other IDE channels off as well as disabling self-check (ie quick mode). My system is about 15 seconds to post and another 35 or so to get XP to the desktop (clean install + optimizations). Anyone want to post their exact settings? Tell me the magic for the 4sec POST and/or 12-15 sec XP boot.
