    boot times?

    my 100% unoptomized carputer running winXP right now boots in about 33 seconds to usable desktop.

    after optimization, what times you think i could expect? possible to get it down to 20 seconds? (turning off networking, and lots o other stuff)

    You should take a look at using Standby or Hibernate.

    33 seconds is pretty good to a useable desktop. You may be able to get it down to 25-30 with more optimisation.

    I got a M 10K to and my system has been optomized my boot times are about 40 sec's till useable desktop it was 30 sec's before theams wallpaper virius scaner ect. it's the best you can do in xp 2k boots in 20 sec's optomized

    if it realy bothers you do what I am doing through that via POS in the trash and get a 2G AMD xp setup

    in case you don't know the via c3 cpu is a Cyrex 3 processor cyrex was bought by via 4 years ago well cyrex made cheep crapy clones of pentium cpu's and via renamed and remarketed them as the via c3 cpu witch is a crapy clone of a celaron cpu I got a 500 mhz pentium 3 that is faster than my M 10k sucks don't it

    the M 10k gives you a lot for your money but it does not have the horse power for multimedia applications witch is what it has been marketed for to bad they don't make it with a AMD xp cpu and nforce chipset

    well, i already did sell that via POS as you call it. the cyrix processors arent BAD, they're just not fast. they're awesome for really really tiny comps.

    but personally, i have a duron (1.8 ghz) and a MSI microATX board that accepts SDRam and DDR.

    If you're willing to put the money out, you can put your OS on a ROM (Disk on chip). Just create an image of the exact setup you want you system to have (services, boot software, media player, and settings that will never change) and hybernate it. Then load that image onto the ROM. Every boot will be about 10s or less. You can use a compact flash or small HDD to store your settings on. This means that you don't need Anti Virus and you don't need to shut down the normal way. You can do a 'hard' shut down every time because it wont affect your OS rom! It's a cool way to go. But it's a little pricey unless you have a spare 256MB DOC-Rom, supported mainboard, and a programmer.
