So What Is The Fastest Boot Up Time I Can Expect............??
So what is the fastest boot up time I can expect using a normal version of XP Pro w/SP1, M10000 Via motherboard with 512 MB of memory? I have used OS optimizers such as TuneXP and TweakUI (but I admit that I am somewhat of a novice when it comes to using these programs for full OS optimization) and also adjusted several services to help free up resources.
Hibernation is out the window for me now since I ruined two batteries due to too many deep cycles, so a cold boot is my only acceptable option. I was able to get down to approx 30 secs from turn the key to RR up and running. So is this the best it is going to get without going out and buying some "compressed" version of XP or upgrading my hardware?
