    No, I get 34 seconds on my PIII 800 MHz, 384MB RAM w/ just a regular XP Pro install with many services disabled and the special effects all off. I am starting to have hard drive problems though and will be replacing my desktop with the HP Core Solo laptop on sale at Best Buy on Black Friday.

    My Boot time

    Hey hey folks...

    I've got a Dell GX100 beefed up with a 800mhz CPU and 256mb of ram. Got it runnin XP SP2, with no services disabled, a few startup options modded and my boot time is about 50 seconds.

    I just recently put everything back in the car and did a fresh install of XP. Gonna tweak it a bit here in the near future but I hope to get it down quicker.

    I have a PIII 700-M Dell Laptop with 256MB (MAX )

    My boot time is somewhere around 25 sec... it would be shorter, but the Dell Post logo stays on there for about 5-8 sec....

    I use an NLite'd version of XP as well....

    It's only 4200 rpm which is prolly my issue. Could you post up the ini file of your nlite installation so i can compare. maybe we can put ours together and make something even faster. 25 seconds is QUICK! is that to click time?

    Well, my car pc isn't running, but I do have a 5400RPM drive, so I'm sure that's your issue...
