    Almost Instantaneous...

    Less than 2 Secs (Excluding Post)

    Around 5 Secs (Including Post)

    But again, I've yet to install any software (Front End, iGuidance, etc...) These benchmarks are with Clean OS only

    I'm sure this will be next question...

    I'm running P4 3.0GHZ with 512MB Ram (running XP Pro SP2)

    I'm merely using this to test nlite...this is not my carputer specs

    That is very good, but I rekon the lack of any software, services and very good specs make it an unfair comparison!!

    If you have the time, perhaps load on all the services you would need to run say RR, I can see this adding an extra 10 seconds.

    The bios on an M10000 is also much slower than your P4. About 5 secs on mine. Then you have the 5 second wait the M1-ATX does before booting.

    Would be good to see if we can get some accurate readings on a couple of different setups comparing xp home, pro, XPE SP1 and SP2. Only if anyone has too much free time though!

    I'll be reinstalling OS on my carputer in a week or so with nlite and minlogon...I'll update the board on my speeds (I use centrafuse, iGuidance, PhoneControl, etc...)

    I reckon we should plot a table and create some graphs (obviously will be tricky with different hardware setups, but the more data the better). At the moment it just seems to be people's own experiences and opinions on which is quickest, what is best etc. Doing a search there's lots of good advice, some contradiction and a little ****e about it on this forum.

    Bios bootup time
    Windows bootup time

    Some factors which may influence the results
    OS + SPs
    Win/min logon
    Services enabled/disabled
    Paging file enabled/disable
    Flash or fixed media to store OS
    Hardware
    - Board
    - Processor
    - RAM

    Can anyone think of a good way of collecting some data to help identify the most significant factors to affect a computer's bootup time? And subsequently a recommendation of hardware, OS tweaking, which OS + SPs and bios settings.

    Keeping this a fair test won't be easy.

    The thing that i noticed that slowed down resume times from hibernation was the USB devices. So i would reckon that if you added say 5 USB devices to the scenereo that you would see a significant slowdown... atleast i see that with my p4-itx board running a 2.8ghz processor and 512 ram.
