    cool

    that's fantastic forget what the haters say.....there is no reason for you to lie. and even though I'm running a chopped up version of MCE I agree, removing massive amounts of services/files from XP doesn't always make a faster computer sometimes it makes a less stable one.

    Well, my CarPuter (Toshiba Tecra A2), was just restored with the manufacturers CD, I didn't bother uninstalling any of their apps apart from Norton and that was because it was a demo. So it boots with about 15 things in the tray.

    The funny thing is however, this thing doesn't POST, so after hitting the power button, it resumes from hibernate in about 4 seconds to RR running. As described here... (http://mp3car.com/vbulletin/showpost...73&postcount=3) I set my computer up so it boots only when the IGN is live. So after turning my key, the computer is pretty much booted whilst cranking - doesn't it make you sick.

    Its spec is...

    Pentium M 1.8 GHz
    512 MB
    80 GB (60% Full)
    Integrated GFx
    Windows XP Pro

    I thought I'd share the fact that you don't neccessarilly need nLite or TinyXP to have a fast booting computer.

    i am going to rebuild my old system tonight and see what the hell is going on to make it work like that.

    Ps. Ordinary boot is about 15s.


    I believe it I have had a hibernate video on my car thread for a long time. It is a 10second boot with hibernate resume. I never figured out why it was so fast.
    I formatted the machine couple times and my fast boot disappeared so it was really odd to me. The resume instead of one fluid motion on the restore would skip a little and was little sluggish vs what are fast boot videos show. I would really like to figure out why it was so damn fast. No need for SSD drives with boots like that... well least for speedy boots. You did it on better technology then my old system but if a 7200RPM IDE drive can get boots like mine did some luck of configuration helped somewhere to make it do what it did.


    7200rpm IDE 20gb drive nothing special...
    p4 1.8ghz
    MicroATX board with a fast bios thats good

    I haven't fully narrowed it down but I am thinking it has to do with Ultra DMA mode in DOS while hiberate resumes. Also the fast posting bios helps. The part that really speeds up is that resume time.

    I have no idea how - the Tosh just seemed able to skip POST unless a hardware change took place - and hibernate resume doesn't take too long if there's only 512MB Ram.

    Do you have any idea how this can be done? The fastest time I have gotten with hibernation is about 20 seconds. Full version of XP Pro.

    Disable anything that doesn't need to be run different motherboards have different settings if you send a picture of each of your motherboard screens I will walk you through it.

    Most of the time is the resume part if your computer doesn't do that fast then get a new motherboard basicly is what it comes down to. What I mean by fast is like the video above or my video. The resume is one fluid motion and not sputering like on most systems. My guess is that a DMA mode in dos is enabled that only certain motherboards enable. It just makes the intial resume fast but once the computer is up it works great. But I am not sure on that part.

    I just save 2 registy files containing the services i want to disable/enable

    i disable non essential stuff, and use the other reg file to restore back when Im changing/installing something

    that works good for me. services like indexing, bacground inteligent service etc will never get used on a carputer which take up resources/speed.
