    I am using WinXP, with MediaEngine

    With no optomisations (disabling useless services, bootvis etc) I can boot from cold and be playing music in about 45 seconds. I reckon if I can change the source for ME to Hibernate rather than shutdown (gotta be simple, just gotta find out how!) then that should knock down to about 30 secs, I hope

    XP is stable. ME is quicker to load from cold boot. XP for the sake of stable OS.

    If it's stuck, force it. If it breaks it needed replacing anyway

    2000lite on a 10k rpm sata hd. Used bootvis, disabled services, and cleaned up reg for a 3 second boot from hibernation. Also upgrade bios which fixed a boot lag that is popular on via mobos
    Falcon cr53 w/ via epia m10000. Nokia 3650 blutooth phone.
    Better than winamp. Click here for qcd player.
