Hello,

I have core i7 system running stable at 3.78Ghz with 6gb ram. I did fresh vista install on seagate 1.5 TB drive.

I also have Q6600 @ 3.3 ghz with 8 gb of ram on seagate 1 tb system. Q600 loads vista much faster than core i7. It takes only half the time of core i7 system.

What is going on here? what am i missing.

Thanks.

I had a Core2Duo E8400@stock 3.0GHz that boots in under 25 seconds with Vista 64. (From the time I press the power button to the time it gets to the login screen)

What are your times?

I do not have a stopwatch with me. But, it takes very long. Normally, Q6600 system boots up to log in page after 4 full status bar. Core i7 system takes 8 full status bar. I have no idea why the new system is slower.

I am formatting the hd now. I will reload windows to see if that helps.

What do you think the sluggishness.

It all works out now. It is now so core i7.

I format the hd again, and resize the c drive to 300 gb. It is fast now. it takes only 3 full working status bar before i can see the log in page. Before it was 8 bar.

Hmm, Ive always thought my system booted slowly, actually it boots fast, its just that it seems to take forever for my hard drive activity light to stop spazzing(boot complete to me). I'm going to time it now...be back in a few with a time

Holy crap! it took 1 min 10 seconds just to see my desktop.
I have my a/v and UltraMon as the only startup programs. my old Athlon XP 1600 booted Win ME so much faster. Shut downs were so much quicker as well, it was literally 3 seconds to shut down. Now vista can take up to a minute or 2 to shutdown occasionally.

I just did an O&O Complete Access defrag a couple of days ago....

*Shakes fist @ Seagate!!!!*

^ HD space must have some effect on boot speeds

I have to call BS on this... Please list your system specs.

My 40MHz 68040 equipped Amiga A1200 with 32MB RAM (EDO) used to boot to fully functioning WorkBench in 10 seconds from a cold start.

Now my Core 2 Duo 8400 @ 3GHz with 4GB RAM (DDR2-800) and ATI 4850 gfx takes over a minute and a half to POST and settle on the Vista x64 desktop with side bar gadgets loaded and startup items loaded (disk may still be active but that may be Kaspersky AV doing a startup scan).
Luckily Stand By works a lot better on this machine than it ever did on my old Athlon XP 3200 machine so I mostly leave the Vista machine on stand by when not in use. Displaying the Desktop when resuming from stand by takes around 2-3 seconds but maybe another 6 or so seconds before the mouse pointer starts responding.
