Cold is 43 secs in to windows.
Bios takes 11 secs? Seems to hang just before the DMI status?
Also it's worth noting that these times are on a 5400 HDD.
I also have a LCD2USB 4 line LCD display built in to the case which I'm certain slows things up a bit, I had to write a vbs to close LCDSmartie and disable the device on suspend then re-enable and restart LCDSmartie on restore, which all takes a little time I guess.
And I'm aware of Windows 7 as I've been using it on my laptop since it came out, the hybrid sleep thing is my main reason for using it on my fresh install when the SSD comes in, for now hibernate works ok though
Nirwana Project, the Android/Win 7 hybrid system!
1X Ainol Novo Flame Tab
3x Perixx Touchpads
3x 7 inch Screens
1X 7 inch motorized Screen
1x Win 7 PC
Ok, don't worry too much, I've sorted the USB issue and now resume from hibernate takes 20 secs dead.
Reduced cold boot times too.
I could probs improve things a lot more as soon as the SSD arrives as the 5400 is a very slow drive.
At the moment it's out of the car, as is 99% of the cars interior lol it's all going under the knife at the moment.
Not much is changing with the CarPC apart from the replacement front panel as the last one got scratched and the installation of a new SSD for OS & Software in conjunction with the original 500GB media drive. Hopefully this will make cold boot and hibernate times reduce dramatically.
I originally had 2x 500GB 7200RPM drives one for OS & Software etc the other for Media, they were half price so jumpped at them! But there's something wrong with the OS drive .
Since I've sent it off for replacement I've been using an old 160GB 5400 drive but the difference in the lower rpm is quite a surprise tbh, I knew it would be a tad slower but this feels a lot slower! With the SSD booting Windows 7 in 30 secs where as a 7200 drive in comparison does it in about 1min 10secs I have high hopes! And the Windows 7 hybrid sleep will be a great advantage.
At the moment I'm trying to set up VB on the Zotac as suggested by a few members I could remove the 2 pico systems I've got under the rear passenger seat plugged in to the headrest touchscreens and run all 3 screens off of 1 PC... Also looking at adding an additional screen for the front passenger, although I'm tempted to fit a tablet or UMPC in to the Glovebox since the power/reset buttons and DVD writer are being relocated now.
I've just installed OM, yes it opens quicker than CF, much quicker. BUT it looks ugly as hell! The interface needs a complete overhaul, I personally would send it to trash and start from scratch.
I'm just being honest- I didn't get on with it at all, it was a massive step backwards IMO and hope that it gets sorted soon as I think OM could be a good bit of software. But at the moment it doesn't make mark it needs to.
Personally I'd make it easily skinnable- this will probs mean all of that fancy OpenGL talk needs to be scrapped but if that's what needs to happen to make a good looking and easily modified front end then it's worth loosing. I still can't see what advantage OpenGL would give.
Take a close look at centrafuse, IMO they have worked hard on their UI. I haven't got v3 but I'm sure it's just as appealing as the version I'm running. If you can match that, and make it even easier to skin then you'll be on a winning combo. At the moment OM looks like a very badly designed flash app.
