For those of you with super computers, how long does it take from the time you turn your computer on until Windows is stable and ready for you to open an application? I think on my 133Mhz computer it was like 5 minutes. On a 800 Mhz it is about 2 or maybe 2:30. On my 2.4 Ghz it is about 1 minute. How about you? Please tell what you have if it is not in your sig.
Seven (7) secs.
I could boot faster with Raid-0 or even more so with twin Raptors.
I don't want to repeat the "bad times" with Raid-0 nor waste the money for two Raptors (or even one).
Clean your registry and defrag it each month and you can keep booting like a new OS install also.
EDIT: The time I posted was not from 100% off...it was from end of POST,the load/boot time for the OS.
