    Boot time records

    Hey Everyone

    Please let us know what is your boot time/ shut down time
    If you did something to cut it down, what was it. Specify which OS you are using aswell as devices (ex: GPS, WiFi, etc...) and hardware configuration.


    I want to see who's got the best boot time

    ok ok ok :P this had been done but the old thread was when people were using the older Pc running 98 so its not that much of a bad idea to do a new 1 and start fresh
    CarPC Status:
    GPS: 99%
    Hardware: 99%
    Software: 92%
    Case Install: 99.9%
    Dash Install: 100%
    Car Install: 72%

    I have seen a bunch of good boot times... mine is currently kinda ****ty...

    It probably takes about 30secs-1min to go from off to music....

    I have my frontend NMC in the startup, and it takes about 15seconds after my desktop is loaded before NMC is run, so I think it might be possible to cut some stuff there... also, it takes a while to load after the graphic part comes up... i mean the "Welcome" screen, and then the desktop being launched.... I think maybe my BT drivers made it kinda slow... i'm gonna try to slim it down further...

    This is an nLite windows XP Pro, with SP1a

    Yep, it was my ex-gaming rig. i now have no time to game, nor any real interest in gaming. Therefore, this beast spec machine will be going in my car. Before I drop it in, I will probably pull out 1 or 2 of the 512mb chips.

    As for the 8 secs - i dont know if thats good or bad - but thats what I get.
