just curious what you guys have got for boot times on your systems..i'm going for the fastest i possibly can.
with a 500 mhz athlon and 128mb running win2k mine comes back from hibernating in about 25 seconds.
Athlon 500, 128 MB, ATI Xpert 4MB AGP TV-Out, Sound Blaster Live! Value, 8.4 GB, 2x20 Backlit LCD, Keypower 250 Watt ATX DC-DC, DSchmitd Startup/Shutdown Controller, IRMan + Backlit IR Remote, Custom Keypad, 5.6" NTSC LCD, In-Dash Slot Loading DVD, all installed in an '87 Honda Accord LX-i
Dos 7 w/MPXPlay Pentium 100 / 32mb
10 seconds boot time
Im 35-40 secs running win ME on celery 433 and 64mb. Yeah, thats not the greatest, but I remote start the whole thing. So even if I am just outside the car and remote boot - by the time I get in, put my seatbelt on, put my sunglasses on, and flip up my LCD (which has too boot up too (Pioneer)) ...its pretty much "good to go" by then.
My engine has to warm up for atleast 20 secs. So I cant go anywhere till then anyways. Damn big fat toyota engine!
30 seconds hibernating in Win ME with an AMD K6-2 500mhz and 128MB ram.
Full boot time is like 70 seconds.
95 Honda Civic DX Coupe - In Progress
Full boot in about 25 secs. Just over 20 secs of that is the mobo post though. About 2-3 secs from starting to load DOS to having a menu on the screen.
Old Systems retired due to new car
New system at design/prototype stage on BeagleBoard.
10 sec. suspend to ram feature
22 seconds from powerup.
Windows 98 (98lite), Duron 800 64MB RAM.
Windows is really stripped down, since I only have an LCD display there is no video card drivers. Windows boots straight to my mp3car app (using the shell= command). Also I have virtual memory turned OFF, so that windows does not have to worry about setting up the swap file.....
Project - GAME OVER :(
I am planning on using 98lite as well, but I was hoping you could tell me a little about the virtual memory thing. I haven't heard of that before. Thanks
