    !!!

    I have never used a board with it so I dunno, but you can speed up boot times greatly by changing the settings yourself.

    Do you get the same times when you disable this rapid thing and make the changes by hand?

    From what I've read, it initializes devices differently, making the boot faster.
    Maybe it will improve performance. Maybe not. I haven't worked with it either.

    However, just because the option is available does NOT mean the option is enabled. That's a poor assumption on the OP's part.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Make sure you've enabled IDE bus mastering in the BIOS!
    This will for sure slow down resuming big time...and likely regular booting as well.

    Hey Tidder, I don't see any 'RapidBIOS Boot' option on my D945GCLF2 ... where is it?

    Same, do I have to used their BIOS edit tool to find that option? Also, my system boots pretty quickly after the post screen comes up, but there is a 10-15 second delay before the POST splash screen appears

    Hmm... I'm looking and I don't see it either... I might have been thinking of another system/motherboard.

    EDIT: Yeah, definitely another machine I must have been playing with, sorry guys. Intel D945GCLF2 Dual-Core Atom

    15 seconds before you see ANYTHING on the screen?
    Sounds like something isn't right there...
