      Did you tweak the OS at all, or is it an untouched install?

        yup, i ran "msconfig" and shut off a lot of services you just wont need. This will make your windows boot a lot faster.

            I'm using an Apple mini on intel core 2 duo with windows, i was never a fan of XP which is why i went with windows 7. Loads 5 sec longer vs XP but you can do more on windows 7 then XP which is another reason why i picked windows 7.

            why apple mini...

              People that have installed W7, say it has major power management and hibernation and standby management improvements. They say boot time are super fast. I installed W7 on my Media Center PC, but I didn't have fast start times. I think its the PC though. I'm going to wait till I know everything is confirmed and all my gadgets and CF will work 100%

                    Dont forget W7 Expires, what you download is just a testing release. I wouldn't install it as your carpc OS unless you like swapping OS's.

                            Have tried both 32 and 64 bit version on my desktop (Quad Intel OC to 3.62Ghz and 2GB of 1200Mhz RAM 2X80GB RAID Stripe) and boot times are about the same as Vista, give or take...
                            I'm sure there's still some optimization coming from MS on this regard...

                              Yea, so does mine, even with all the devices I have. I think its at about 55 seconds from cold boot and 20 seconds or less from hibernation. With no devices it was hella fast, 20 seconds from cold boot and about 5-7 seconds from hibernation.
