Flash memory for instant O/S boot-up?

Years ago I recall reading about some initiative where future Windows Operating Systems could be made to boot in seconds (instead of minutes) if/when motherboards started coming equiped with Flash memory. Has this happened yet? What kind of nomenclature or logo should I be looking for to signify a product that has this feature?

  1. You would be looking for Solid State Drives or SSDs. They replace traditional hard drives and do decrease boot times dramatically. Here is a good place to start.

  2. Some motherboards from asus will do it, but into a Linux type OS, not into Windows. My Windows 7 machine boots in 8.6 seconds with my Intel SSD and some tweaks I have made.
