How to speed up boot process under Windows Vista or Windows 7

673 posts in this topic

you now boot in 9s to the desktop. the end is not in the trace. have you interrupted the trace?

The only thing I see is that the WRITING Cache of the HDDs is disabled. Is this done by the newer driver?

Please also install the Sp1, you use a Win7 RTM with an old Security patch for the kernel:

7600.16481.x86fre.win7_gdr.091207-1941

Hello Andre,

Yes i click "Finish" after about 5 sec after i am in desktop, but i am shure that everything is loaded...

The chace was disabled by me, i thought it was faster without the cache.

Now i have enable the chace, the result is about the same.

I Have uploaded at the same link for u to take a look, but to me it seems the the same.

I will install SP1 and post some results.

Thanks

Install the Sp1, run the optimization again and make a new trace and don't hit finish. Let Windows count down the 120s. give me the latest trace.

I did.

I did not get any changes after 6 restarts. Sometimes i get 63sec sometimes 70sec.

-----

I use this script to see how many second need to be restarted completely:

Restart-Time.rar

Nope :(

Do i need to follow this?

For boot tracing:

xbootmgr -trace boot -traceFlags BASE+CSWITCH+DRIVERS+POWER -resultPath C:\TEMP

p.s. i edited post above.

don't use such nonsense scripts. generate the XML summary from the ETL and look at the values.

Hi Andre,

can you help me with my boot time problem.

You can download my report here: http://sites.google.com/site/joelabine/Home/summary_boot.zip

As you can see the complete boot time is : bootDoneViaPostBoot="292650"

Horribly slow

I did try to find what was the problem but unfortunatly I wasn't able to. I found that "diskIO" takes a lot of time. Especially on <file name="Unknown (0x0)" ???

Thanks for your help

Mathieu

"Unknown (0x0)" is the Superfetch prefetcher.

 <notification type="Logon" sessionId="1" startTime="57698" endTime="78834" duration="21135">
<subscriber name="Profiles" startTime="57698" endTime="78106" duration="20407" />

you have a 20s delay in logon to the PC. Is the PC domain joined?

also the ExplorerInit and PostBoot is slow. How many tools do you start at boot? reduce them with AutoRuns.

Also zip and upload the ETL.

the group policies take too long:

the GP start at 37s and end at 84.2s. So this is the cause of a longer delay.

Also starting all services takes very long:


<services autoStartStartTime="32082" autoStartEndTime="86115" autoStartDuration="54033">

reduce the loaded services and applications and check the group policies.

Just wanted to say thanks! This thread saved my sanity -- I was at the end of my rope after having reinstalled windows twice and the information I found here (and a few days of fiddling with drivers and running tests over and over again) is what fixed my boot-up/hibernation/resume issues.

Could you take a look at my log?

I saw the improvement but a full 45s seems long enough compared to my 32-bits, same softwares loading at the startup.

Thank you.

the issue is your Marvell 61xx RAID Controller:


- <phase name="bootStart" startTime="28" endTime="13776" duration="13748">
<pnpObject name="PCI\VEN_11AB+DEV_6121+SUBSYS_82A21043+REV_B2\4+1ad356c7+0+00E4" type="Device" activity="Enum" startTime="5886" endTime="12169" duration="6283" prePendTime="0" description="Marvell 61xx RAID Controller" friendlyName="" />
<pnpObject name="PCI\VEN_11AB+DEV_6121+SUBSYS_82A21043+REV_B2\4+1ad356c7+0+00E4" type="Device" activity="Start" startTime="2851" endTime="5885" duration="3033" prePendTime="3033" description="Marvell 61xx RAID Controller" friendlyName="" />

it takes 9s to enumerate the connected devices. Because of this the PreSMSS phase takes 16s. Update the drivers, please. Which devices do you connect to the Marvel Controller?

Also starting all programs at startup takes 10s.

Would you mind analyzing my summary report and making recommendations to speed up my boot time?

Regards

the WinLogonInit takes tooo long:

<interval name="WinlogonInit" startTime="28142" endTime="1421495" duration="1393353">

I can see that the services start slowly:

- <services autoStartStartTime="38746" autoStartEndTime="200063" autoStartDuration="161317">

I can see that the VPNservice takes 11s to start:

<serviceTransition name="vpnagent" group="TDI" transition="start" totalTransitionTimeDelta="11953"

the CarboniteService takes 9 s to start:

serviceTransition name="CarboniteService" group="" transition="start" totalTransitionTimeDelta="8911"

the .net 3.0 Fontache service takes long to start:

serviceTransition name="FontCache3.0.0.0" group="" transition="start" totalTransitionTimeDelta="15376"

But this service is taking 2 minutes to start:

serviceTransition name="hpqddsvc" group="" transition="start" totalTransitionTimeDelta="119265" firstCheckpointTimeDelta="130" processingTimeDelta="119135" container="hpdevmgmt svchost (2664)"

it looks like a HP service.

To see more details, make afull boot trace and compress the boot_BASE+CSWITCH+DRIVERS+POWER_1.etl as 7z or RAR and upload it to mediafire.com and post a link here.

your HDD is busy all the time. Do you connect the HDD to the marvel chip?

you still have a lot of tools/services running (Lenovo tools, Windows Home Server tools, HP driver tools, Intel tools, Acrobat speedstart, JAVA Updater, Windows Live Messenger). Reduce the number much more

This is a Lenovo laptop. The HDD is connected to an onboard Intel 5 Series 6 SATA controller.

I will try to reduce the number of tools and post another summary.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Here are my latest results after cleaning up more software.

[http://www.mediafire.com/?x3v50elr03qcc2c

Even with a 59 sec boot, there still seems room for improvement. Any suggestions? (Edit: I neglected to subtract the postBootRequiredIdleTime of 10 seconds. That would put me at a 49 second boot. Is this about the best I can expect?)
