    well someone might prove me wrong, but i did not notice any difference when resuming from hibernate, i think this is because when resuming from hibernate windows does not use the boot.ini file, but i could be wrong.

    I notice this also...... its seems it doesnt matter how massive or small your system is, the resume seems to be the same length of time, which for me is fairly fast. I think most of these tweaks work for cold boots.

    Same here!
    Cold boot quicker, but resume the same.

    Sorry about posting a couple of months later, but I have to correct you guys.
    Changing the numproc doesn't do anything. Windows uses all the cores all the times.

    Also the /maxmem tag i think is also incorrect. Windows be default uses all RAM. /maxmem is used if want only a certain amount a RAM used.

    That is correct to a point. Most all settings in msconfig are not really for tweaking, more for troubleshooting/limiting purposes. The numproc is used to limit how many CPU cores Windows will use, comes in handy sometimes since some software (like SQL 2005) requires cores to be in multiples of 2. Also can test programs against different numbers of cores for dev purposes.

    Also the /maxmem tag i think is also incorrect. Windows be default uses all RAM. /maxmem is used if want only a certain amount a RAM used.

    Same with /maxmem. It is indeed used for limiting windows usable memory from what's available. In my carPC I use a /maxmem=384 setting to decrease my resume from hibernation times even though I have a 2gb Ram stick in there.

    However I do disagree with what that lifehacker article says about disabling services. Disabling services will have a HUGE impact on boot times. Look at how fast an optimized version of Micro2003 boots vs a standard XP install.

    Hey guys - the delay entry in boot.ini doesn't have anything with a single OS boot unfortunately - it is how long the multi-boot OS list is present for, until the top one is chosen. Thats if you have more than 1 os on your system.
