nicely done, but your times match, his were just grossly out of the realm of reasonable
Kinda what I am thinking as well, but he has not answered me yet. I have to say this thing is blazing tho...
I calculated 18~19 seconds
Well I shaved some off by changing the Jmicron from detecting as there was nothing there at all any way .
but still this thing is slow !!!!!!
Haha! There is a clock on the bottom of the video...calculate from the time I clicked on the app to the result.
If you could get away from the RAID it would be a huge difference.
No the raid setup is fine . I wouldn't get rid of it unless I had some thing like an SSD to replace it with LOL . I don't care it is an aged setup and getting slow any way even at 4.1Ghz ! I need an i7 super CPU !
Sorry - I thought you had a ssd in your specs. Cpu does not matter...my second fastest times came from a Sempron 140 sometime back. Overclock does nothing for it either.
Yeah I do not have that SSD any more I forgot to change my specs . I will now . Thanks for reminding me . I plan a new set up some day soon with SSD as the main drives !
OK then, what are the determining factors?
I think i have the longest boot time here yet. I come in with a staggering 91 seconds. XD
I am no expert in these matters but it seems to be more related to how one initially loads the OS and bios settings.
no I do 92 seconds .
Now im obsessed with trying to get it to 30 seconds.
LOL , I am not all that obsessed about it . I can live with mine just fine . If I get a chance maybe some day to have a supper fast set up then cool but just think of this , in 6 months it will be as slow as the one you have now ! It is getting almost to much for me to keep up with all this stuff does is cost tons of cash and you never get what you think you want ! It is a good game they have us all scrambling for the fastest bestest setup only to find in a month or 2 it will be the slowest POS out as they will have a much faster SSD driver , Ram , CPU , video card and even a NEW DVD/CD-RW that is faster than any thing you have now ! Hell when I got this setup it was not 2 months later the i7 came out and just killed me ! what a joke .
SSD's need to come down in price. I cant see spending 200 on a 128GB SSD. They dont really last that long either do they?
Bottom bar on the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Ln0PeIk6EY (elapsed time)
I don't think they last as long as a Hard drive does but I think they are supposed to last up to 5 years 3 would be more like it though . But Like I said before they will have faster and faster ones coming out every 2 months so what would really be the point ? They have pretty much taped all they can out of the mechanical hard drives so they are as fast as they are and that is about all there is for them . but with new tech changing as fast as it is the SSD drives will be moving forward so fast that it would be hard to keep up . Hell sandforce came out and I had just bought what I though was the fastest one out there from Intel ! Boy was I surprised I took it back and bought a monitor ! I was really that pissed off !
No offense, but could you be a little more specific, please?
'Initially loads the OS' as in installs the OS?
'BIOS settings', for example...?
When you load OS configure sata as AHCI, not IDE for a ssd. Enable quick boot in your bios settings. (Disable anything that would hinder you from getting to desktop rapidly)
You can also shave a second or two by running it in selective or diagnostic mode.
Hard drive, BIOS, mobo, and boot manager. I spend a decent amount of time waiting for GRUB to come up.
Disable unused on-board stuff (in BIOS)
Disable unused ports, maybe a hard drive dedicated to Linux (in Device Manager)
Unplug unnecessary drives (CD, DVD, USB drive)
Defrag & optimize
Go to device manager, open Primary IDE channel, Advanced Settings tab, on device that doesn't have "Device Type" greyed out select "None" instead of auto. Repeat for Secondary IDE channel.
Go to your BIOS and make sure your SATA ports are on IDE type (or whatever it's called) instead of SATA.
These have only been tested on Windows XP.
i meant beat him up.
I have 4 G2 64GB SSD in RAID 0
DVD drive is AHCI
I do not believe I have a quick boot option in BIOS, but I will check later
I did try disabling all startup items except those required for Windows to load.
I will look through the BIOS to see what I can disable
No IDE devices present in PC
I suppose I could try unplugging the DVD drive for one reboot
SSD drives are RAID 0
Windows 7 x64.
