    Slow bootup!


    Hey guys

    To start off, my specs are:
    Gigabyte MA770-UD3
    AMD Phenom II X4 940
    6gb 800mhz ram
    8600 GT XXX Zalman Fanksink
    640 Western Digital 7200 RPM

    I instlaled a clean Vista ultimate x64 2 days ago
    After I updated vista with windows update today, my boot time has drastically increased (60-75s).
    I have done all the tweaks, disabled useless services etc.

    I don't understand why, I'm expecting around 30-40s boot time with my CPU and memory =/

    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks.

    You might need to clear up a couple items for anyone who can help you.

    >I got Vista ultimate x64 2 days ago
    Did you install it then? What was running before that install?

    >After I updated vista today, my boot time has drastically increased
    >(60-75s).
    What do you mean by "updated vista"? Do you mean that you installed
    all the necessary updates, including SP1?

    You don't update Vista from 32 bit to 64 bit. You perform a clean install.
    The very first thing you do after the clean install is install the requisite
    motherboard drivers from the M/B manufacturer.

    Is this how you "updated"?

    Sorry for the misunderstanding, I installed a clean version of Vista ultimate x64 SP1, and then a day later I proceeded to use windows update to update things.

    Did you update your drivers?

    Did you install EVERY Vista update?

    Yes I updated my drivers.
    I didn't install all of them - I installed most of the security updates etc.

    If needed, I can post pictures of my services etc.
