Thanks chevy! Im using Tinyxp for a os. It was quicker when i got it, with nothing on it. Just roadrunner and winamp, i could boot to music in about 34 sec. Now with Digitalfx 2.0 as a skin, bluetooth, wireless internet, gps and everything else, its boot to music in about 55 seconds. My way of combating this (after in bootvis and everything else i can think of) is to hook my psu up to an output on my remote entry system on my car to the same input as ign wire, with a diode. That what when i unlock my doors, it starts the boot process hopefully shaving off 10 seconds or so. Its only theory right now, but im pretty confident i can get it to work how i want.
EDIT: Bootvis shows cold boot takes 34 seconds, and winamp is running by 37 seconds.
