    I can do that with Win7 with a SATA3 SSD. That is impressive off a 5400rpm. Is your bios that fast or did you start the video a few seconds after pressing the power button.

      My desktop BIOS is faster then that, most modern motherboards have an option for quick boot or something similar. Windows 8 definitely boots faster though which is certainly welcomed!

        Are you running the win 8 as installed or have you tweaked the startup and taken out the stuff that is not needed? I have not tried win 8 yet, I have a tablet that I am wanting to try it on, but havent made that leap of faith yet.

              hi

              i have installed windows 8 on my car pc. in first steps, riderunner is running fine.
              there is also a option to run directly an other program.

              i tested some methods. but no success.
              i think win 8 alows only programs, wich don't need adminrights to start.

              i don't know how difficult it is to program RideRunner, that is possible a start without adminrights.

              @coders: is there a way?

                you can select the option run as administrator in the properties of the .exe , that should solve it

                  the option is already selected. same problem. UAC is also off.
                  if i start RR fron desktop, it runs without problem.

                  but i stopped the time for system startup. my xp needs the same time to start. nearly 30 - 35 seconds. my systemdrive is a SSD.

                      Nothing to do with RR but I've been testing a New CAR-PC running Win-8 for a few weeks on the bench. I've noted that Win8 delays the launch (or low prioritises) apps listed in auto start. (Task Manager - Start-up) I found that making a logon task to launch my FE is a lot faster. I've encounter no unusual problems compared to Win7 with any app with respect to admin rights.

                      To clarify my setup, my desktop is useable within 14 seconds from power on "cold boot" - Click my FE icon at that point and it loads instantly (1 second to FE welcome message). Make the FE app auto-run and its delayed up to 15 seconds after desktop appears. Start it as a task and it loads in 3 to 4 seconds after desktop (or Metro) appears.

                      I still feel that in Win8, non system apps load at a much lower priority (longer app initialisation and not just a delayed start up.) Anyone dug deeper into this?

                        what is FE?

                        i don't want to see the desktop or metroscreen. and don't want skip them.

                        if i config the userdefined start-app to firefox, win8 starts up and just run firefox.
                        but RR not.

                          FE = Front End

                          I'll try setting my startup app to Firefox and see if that works, RR definitely does not.

                              Firefox will start, but the system still boots to metro, then I have to click desktop pane to see Firefox, no sign of RR


                              a lot of the tricks for application startup listed on the web will not work for Win8 home edition

                              So I'm thinking of going to Win8 professional, but I may not want to continue down the pioneer path and go back to Win 7 instead
