    Question Opus 90 boot time.

    I am experiencing a slow booting with opus 90. Around 45+ seconds. I am using epia 10000 with 5400 10gig hard drive only for now. When I tried to power the pc at home using atx 300v power supply from desktop, the boot time decreased at least by a double. Moreover, the Opus does not survive the cranking, and the system reboots every time I start the engine. Sometimes I also have problems starting the pc with the vehicle turned off, and I have a Optima battery that have higher Cranking power.

    Do I need a second battery to survive cranking add give Opus enough power to boot faster? Or I should have used the desktop power supply? Please help!

    I have very similar to your config including OPUS 90, my boot to music is about 25 seconds under XP.

    Not sure how the voltage could effect boot time... unless you have some power saving options that are causeing the hard drive to be powered down.

    re

    I was have tried the both OPus and atx 300wt supplies today, and the 300wt is way faster. I was reading here that some people have 15 sec in boot time with opus 90, but I donít know the battery set up they have.

    How did you wire the Opus up?

    Check to make sure you didn't confuse the power and accessory lines.

    re opus.

    The yellow wire to battery, red to power remote. I used the same line as to my amp so the big wires will provide enough power

    I don't have my opus just yet, but in most cases red = power. I would say double check your manual.

    This is from my head, but I think he is right. The opus color code system went opposite from any head unit I have seen, so I think he is correct with yellow to battery
    [------X---] 70% done, though that number goes up and down all the time

    Why would they go against the standard like that? Damn Opus!

    You've got the remote/permanent the wrong way round. This will cause the permanent to go off when you crank.

    As for boot times, simply changing the power supply should have NO effect on the boot times.
