Sorry if this "General Discussion" is in the wrong place. And sorry if there is a topic out there like this already (I looked really hard to find one).

 

 

So, Post your Windows Boot Times Here! 

 

Format: 

Boot time.

Operating System Version (XP, Vista, 7, 8).

How you got it to that point.

Type of computer (Dell, 1GB RAM blah blah)

 

I will start it out:

 

My boot time is 42 Seconds.

I have Windows Vista SP2 64 Bit.

Disabled everything that is not needed (everything!).

Gateway DX4500 5GB RAM, 590GB Hard Drive, AMD Phenom 9150e Quad-Core Processor.


I prefer Linux. Windows 10 is just to invasive for me.

I'll play too. I don't know and don't care.

I'm always doing something else in the mean time. So it's never been an issue I gave a second thought to.

Welcome to BC Alex! :hello:

 

Thank you for welcoming me! I love the BleepingComputer community and enjoy the way you are all so patient with everyone in the malware forums (I love to see people get clean computers again). People have helped people at BleepingComputer for so long and hope it continues to do so. And Union_Thug what program did you use for the boot time thing?

You're welcome Alex...the "boot time thing" is a simple .VBS script I came across at Sevenforums --another great community much like BC

Find it here: How to See What Your Windows Restart Time is

 

Edit to add: Also works in Vista, dunno about XP.

Union_Thug

 

Thanks for the vbs script link at the 7 forum.

 

Win 7 x64

i5-650 Dual Core 3.20 GHz CPU   

16 Gb DDR3 RAM

1 Tb HDD

 

I checked mine and the time's about 85 seconds.  I had trouble getting the script to run at first.  I downloaded it to the desktop and it didn't work there.  When I moved it to one of my Documents folders, it worked.  Strange.

 

What I usually look at a couple of things when I restart the PC:

 

It's not an issue with me as long as I know the approx. elapsed times required during a couple of steps:

- The black Windows logo screen. That always takes about 26-28 seconds on my Desktop and Laptop PC's. That's the time when the logo screen begins after POST and when the "Welcome" screen appears.

- "Welcome" Screen time. That will vary on my Desktop PC but usually takes ~10-15 seconds before the desktop launches.
