    Fujitsu Tablet 600 (P3-500MHz) with 256MB RAM. From hitting power button to full Windows XP desktop with hourglass disappears is 38 seconds. Shut down takes 5 seconds from hitting the power button. Hibernate takes 9 seconds.

    The BIOS loading takes a while, almost 20 seconds so Windows portion loads pretty quick given the speed and RAM of the tablet. Unfortunately Centrafuse takes about 20 seconds to start itself.

    I was getting 10 second boots with my XP image running in vmware. Now running on my 1ghz via with all my apps I am getting around 20 second cold boots. I also used nlite to make my XP image and I am booting the whole system from a 1 gig SanDisk compact flash drive. Im runng EWF and some other XP embedded tools which makes my setup *very* similar to a full XPE build.

    disabling any graphics in the load option usually helps too ... things like bios logo's, and you can even disable the whole windows XP load logo from the registry. I need to repull up whihc one exactly takes care of that ... but I know its doable.

    If you want to disable the Windows XP loading screen, just add this to the last line in your boot.ini file.

    /noguiboot

    e.g. My last line reads
    Code:
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /noguiboot
    Only saves about half a second, but it all adds up
