Slow Boot times after TinyXP
I got my hands on the Platinum Edition of TinyXP, and I've yet to see any performance increase. A complete clean install gives me 1min 37 boot time, versus 1min 25 for a plain old Windows XP Pro install.
20seconds of this is POSTing; Im not too concerned about that, as the BIOS is basic and not much can be done, but surely XP should be speedier?
I've also used eXPerience's "Service Config Files", BootVis, and turning off the windows loading images, without any noticeable boot differences. I had a try at Minlogon, but got an infinite rebooting cycle that required another re-install - at an hour a time, I'm not willing to go through that in a hurry. Also, there are as yet no external USB devices plugged in to cause a problem.
Is this just the slow specs of my system (800Mhz Duron, 256MB PC100 SDRAMM, ATA-66 4200Rpm laptop HDD), or has anyone got a weedy PC like mine booting quicker?
