    nice thread - nice setup.

    Still doesn't answer the question though.

    I'd love to see a comparison of MB boot times (just BIOS to Win). Mine is around 15-17 secs - just horrible and there's nothing I can do about it except find another board. Only problem is that "boot time" is not a std spec so hard to shop for that.

    I'll add mine to a potential list (mrClean, happy to move this slightly off-topic post to another thread if you want):

    Power to WinXP boot time:
    -------------------------
    ibase MB870: 17 secs (with all BIOS optimizations, booting off 7200 rpm SATA 2.5 inch drive)

    I am curious how you found that MB - super fast POST - can't work for me anyhow (too big, I need ITX).

    Anyone know of any ITX boards (P4 or P-M preferred) that boot (POST) as fast as 1 sec!

    MrClean -> how long is the POST time on your StreetDeck hw (MB896) (till you see WinXP logo)?

    Most new motherboards have it but its called different things. I looked at alot of pdf files online to see what the bios features were before I bought it.

    Something like "silent boot"

    If anyone has a list of mobo's that has a quick boot feature, can you please tell us?

    I know Foxconn has the SuperBoot, but I really don't know of any other brands.

    ****-poor attitude, newbie. (Dont' be offended by that term. It only means you're new to this community.)
    Do they just hand you information when you go researching in the library? No, you have to search for it. Same applies in these (and any other) forums.

    Not quite that fast. My gaming PC POSTs in about 2-3sec, though when the onboard RAID is disabled.
    The PC that will go in my car POSTs in about 3-4.

    I don't think there are any motherboards that POST in 1sec. I could be wrong.
    And you're right about one thing... There are a lot of tweaks you can do int eh BIOS to make the POST faster.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    No, that's your poor attitude right there. And if I'm not supposed to be offended being told to "look it up 28 post newbie" (even when you admit I was making a correct statement), then no one else should be complaining by me calling them "oldie". Jeez you "old guys" sure know how to welcome new members. NICE!

    Thanks for the info on your boards though - would you be so kind to put in the model numbers for future reference?

    Nobody is complaining about your response to being called a newbie (which you are, like it or not). Frankly, I found it amusing for a second or two.
    I am, however complaining about your attitude lazy-*** attitude toward finding uyour own information. You yourself said you didn't "feel the need to search". That's the ****-poor attitude. It's just plain lazy.

    These forums are a treasure trove of information. I compare it to a library, albeit with one significant difference: In these forums you can toss out a question for people to answer. And when you ask a question that's been answered dozens of times before, you willg et told to search for the answer yourself. If you go into the library and ask a question to everyone present in the library, you'll get shown to the card catalog (or whatever) to locate your own information, assuming they don't kick your *** out!

    The gaming PC is an MSI KT3 Ultra with an AthlonXP 2400+.
    The PC destined for my truck is a Shuttle FN41 (found in the SN41G2 barebones setup) with an AthlonXP-Mobile 2400+, running at correct clockspeed thanks to a pin-mod.

    You are misunderstanding.

    That comment was made only because the poster was not answering the question (when he asked that I search for his post), not because I was being lazy. I 100% agree with doing searches to find information before posting questions. I was not posting a question. I was posting an answer - and a correct one I might add. So what did I need to do a search for? I suppose I shouldn't have been sensitive to being called "newbie". Whenever I come across "newbies" I and many others go out of our way to welcome them to our forums. Too bad a few people don't feel the same way...

    0k, nuff said - back on topic. Let's get a good list of fast booting boards...

    I'd say from the time the machine powers up to the XP logo is around 3-4 seconds. It's pretty quick!
