but I DO have an SSD with a 7200 laptop
HD for storage with 1 Gb of ram running XP SP2 on an atom 330.
My crank to boot is roughly in the minute mark which includes the 5s delay to turn the pc on from the M2-atx. I have editted the startup config file via ms config and gone in the bios to make sure the drives were properly selected as master and slave or (drive 0 drive 1). Where can slow booters go to get better boot times I have spent hours searching the internet with little to no success. I keep seeing people boot in 20 seconds etc...
It also seems that once i added my laptop 7200 rpm HD that my boot times lengthened by a decent amount.
