Hello Everyone,

Thanks to sidney1st we have a great way to measure the ReBoot-Time (restart time) for our systems.

You can see how to here: How to See What Your Boot Up Time is in Vista

Hello sidney1st,

I did mine with no problems; used copy/paste to do the whole thing!
Mine includes a secure Ctrl+Alt+Dlt Logon.
And it looks like I'm the first to post after Brink... :p

Thanks Shawn for adding the sticky!

Hi Sid,

Yeah, I disabled all that stuff. I haven't had time to really dig into the BIOS from this new motherboard to learn all of it's new feature vs my old one's yet.

Plus, I need to dig through the services and processes some more to do a little trimming.

Interesting...



I have yet to tweak or modify this system yet, It has all the programs you would ever use installed.

Im surprised without tweaking I get about the same startup time as the more powerful computers.

Here are the specs for the computer I just ran it on...

Pentium D 3ghz (dual-core)
2GB DDR2-533 RAM
XFX 8500GT NVidia
120GB SATA HDD
Vista Ultimate X86

From a cold start I am on a working desktop in less than 60 seconds!

Hello TimUnrue,

I am wondering myself if it will make any difference?
Maybe I'll give it a temporary try also, at a later time!

I am going to enable automatic logon and see how much that will improve it by later.
I just "tweaked" a second off of mine, I changed it above.


Later :) Ted

Well, after applying a few more tweaks, and messing around with some settings randomly, I rebooted only to find that "BOOTMGR" was missing. I then inserted the Vista disk and fixed the error through command prompt. Because of that my time new time was:



I tried again and was able to bring my old time down 10 seconds:



I did some more tweaking and got it down to:

Hello All,

Here is my new number with non-secure auto Logon.

I was just wondering if it really made a difference; now I am going to put it back like it was.

Here is my reboot time. It is not the fastest, but when I compare it to the machine I use at work (over 10 minutes), it is like 'Speedy Gonzales'.

Wow this thread is great. I started at almost 90secs before using the info provided to do tweaking. The 4 core boot up made a huge difference.
