  • New install this weekend...Which OS should I load?

    I have a epia m10000, 512meg, 80gig, opus 90w.

    I plan on using winamp or media engine. Also plan to hibrinate PC (never shutting down).

    I am wondering which windows OS to use...win2000, XP, etc???

    I am using WinXP, with MediaEngine

    With no optomisations (disabling useless services, bootvis etc) I can boot from cold and be playing music in about 45 seconds. I reckon if I can change the source for ME to Hibernate rather than shutdown (gotta be simple, just gotta find out how!) then that should knock down to about 30 secs, I hope

          XP is stable. ME is quicker to load from cold boot. XP for the sake of stable OS.

          If it's stuck, force it. If it breaks it needed replacing anyway

                  2000lite on a 10k rpm sata hd. Used bootvis, disabled services, and cleaned up reg for a 3 second boot from hibernation. Also upgrade bios which fixed a boot lag that is popular on via mobos

                      Debian/Gentoo/LFS/BLFS/Slackware Linux, all can be slim. Much faster, much more userfriendly.

                          I'm curious to know how to get Windows XP to boot in ~30 seconds.
                          I did a fresh install, service pack 1, critical updates etc. I also followed the steps in someones post (sorry can't remember who's) to disable uneeded services, boot and system performance enhancements etc... I even went through the items on tweakxp.com (great site). Basically i went through every thing i could find on the net, still it takes ~60 seconds from pressing the power button to the hour glass cursor dissapearing. The longest part of the process is logging in.

                          Does anyone know what i can do or try to speed up the login process. I tried mucking around with a custom shell when loggin on, but it takes even longer.
                          I couldn't get XP to even boot to a custom shell, it would default to Safe Mode.

                          80GB 7200 rpm Maxtor

                          -XP install, approx ~1GB (no paging file)
                          We are, will have and forever will be...

                            I assume your autologin is working right? Why do you need SP1 if your computer is going to be in your car all the time? In my case, I have nothing but XP and my media files and on my system, Ican get it to the main screen in about 40 seconds. If Idisable all the services that I don't use, I can cut it down to about 30 seconds.

                            Check on your services.

                              I say dont waste time cutting boot times, resuming from hibernation or standby takes less than ten secs
