HI Shawn -
While this tutorial taught me something new and useful, and I thank you for
that - it did not really answer my question.
I am looking for a list of changes, or a change, in the BOOT process - a
cold boot if you will - so that the computer ready to use quicker! I have
looked in the F2 and F12 bios options, and cannot find what I was told is a
"Quick boot" feature. This supposedly eliminates the RAM check (remember the
old DOS RAM check? You could see it on the screen as it went through all the
RAM?) and other slow boot processes.
Thanks again for your response!
