    For the record, since I don't use mappoint, I deleted the Mapppointaddin.dll or whatever its called and now I'm at 3 seconds load time.

    Excellent! Now if we could just get 5 second windows loads.
    My opinion is my own.

    Are you updated to SP3 and if so, does xplite work on it?

    SP3 was updated. I don't see why it wouldn't work, but haven't tried yet. It seems to be running so good, i' don't know if it is even worth trying to slim it down. I don't think it was a whole lot different anyway. All the crap was gone as far as pop ups and sounds, but that can be taken out anyway.

    Honestly I've experimented quite a bit with slimmed down versions of XP using Nlite. If you were using a via processor or really limited in hard drive space I'd recommended it. But looking at your specs running a Core 2 duo with a large hard drive you will hardly notice any difference in boot up times and don't need to be that concerned with the amount of space you OS takes up.

    What I would recommend is making images of your setup after its up and running using software like DriveBackup, Ghost, etc. Another thing running bootvis after setup is complete can help speed up boot times. EWF is an other usefull tool for a CarPC is has its advantages/disadvantages as all writes are made to Ram but its super helpfull in keeping your OS from becoming corrupt I.E sudden power loss, cold reboots

    Thanks for the advice. Have you any experience using the minlogon. If so , is there a sig. difference in boot times using that method.

    I use minlogon it does help in decreasing bootup times but the amount on of time depends on the system. One draw back to minlogon is that certain programs will not install in minlogn and you will have to revert back to winlogon which isnt that difficult. Give minlogon a shot is simple enough and you can revert back easily, remember to run bootvis too.

    Thanks,


    Another note, I'm still crashing which now leads me to think either the system is overheating or the m2-atx is crap. The case feels real hot after it crashes and it takes like 30 seconds or so before it wants to reboot. I'm leaning towards the overheating. I'm going to pull the seat down and drive since the comp. is in the trunk. and see if the problem persists.

    If it crashes and the case is hot, it is probably overheating. M2 is a fine product as long as you run within its specs...
