  • fastest BIOS boot

    Anyone know of any motherboards that have a fast BIOS boot time? I currently have a mini-atx motherboard with onboard GeForce, but it takes 15 seconds from when power is applied to when windows starts loading.

    Anyone know of any boards with an onboard 3d processor and a BIOS boot time of less then 10 seconds?

      are you serious? The BIOS only takes 1 second to boot on those?

      Can anyone else confirm this? Anyone know of anything similar, but with a built in 3D processor, like a geforce?

          I'm resurrecting an old thread because I am interested in this topic. My Via Epia m10000 is in the 7-8 second bios time. I have 2 IDE devices that are detected on every boot. Can I flash a new bios on there that may go faster, or can I tweak my bios further.

          /Hey at least i searched

            On my M10k, from it getting power to the windows logo showing up would be around the 4 second mark. There is alot of things that can be turned off in the Bios.

            Try using 'bootvis' and do the 'Trace & driver delays test'. That tells you how long everything takes. Bios load time, logon time, driver load time etc. It's a good guide to let you know whether your tweaks are working.

            P.S. Moneyfink, I didn't realise the age of this thread

              2 and a half years!! another holy thread resurection batman!

              Good topic though. Maybe first off you should turn off auto find on the drives and manually set them up in bios. I have noticed in the past that searching for ide devices sometimes slows down boot. Especially if your searching all ide ports and only one drive attached. my 2 pennies

                I admited that this was an old thread in the first sentence of my ressurection post.

                None-the-less... flashing a newer faster bios is out of the question?
