MicroXP with Minlogon, EWF, & HORM installed...
...and the results was not what I expected.
30BG 4200RPM *i think*
RR v11-04-07 as shell
K-Lite Codec Pack v2.88
w/ all necessary drivers.
From "key-on" to music averages to 38 seconds from cold boot.
From "Key-on" to music averages to 27 seconds from resume.
6 seconds is waiting for the Opus to send the "power on" signal to the mobo.
This is a pretty lean install, right?
Looking at my hardware, my HDD could be a limiting factor. I have a 10GB 5400RPM HDD lying around here that I could swap to. Would that help my boot times?
Eventually, I am going to transfer to a CF card, but want to do an extensive shakedown of the system since what I do here will evenutally be emulated in my carPCv2.0 Pico-ITX install.
My goal is to get a sub 20 sec HORM or cold boot. Is that possible w/ my hardware and software choices?
I really would appreciate the input.
