Done man! Check this out:

timing bootDoneViaExplorer="25209" bootDoneViaPostBoot="61909" 

25s to desktop and 62s to finish completely :w00t: That's a lot of improvement. :D

Thank you so much for your help :)

:hello:

it is 52s, you have to subtract the 10s idle time.

But this is really an improvement to the over 200s at the beginning :)

best regards

André

Even better yet :P Thanks again André :thumbup

Best regards!

So to clarify Andre, in the future if I want to defragment my hardrive I should use the default disk defragmenter under system tools?

Awesome :thumbup , never knew this was possible.

I followed all the steps and i see some time improvements, but when i run the export xml command i get an error message in the console. I cannot create the .xml result file to determine the time.

Here is what i get in the CMD Shell. (Administrator Rights Enabled)

C:\Windows\system32>xperf -i bootPrep_BASE+CSWITCH_1.etl -o 01_summary_start.xml -a boot

xperf: warning: applying restriction of access for trace processing

xperf: error: 01_summary_start.xml: Failed to open output file [0x80070005].

C:\Windows\system32>xperf -i boot_BASE+CSWITCH_1.etl -o 02_summary_end.xml -a boot

xperf: warning: applying restriction of access for trace processing

xperf: error: 02_summary_end.xml: Failed to open output file [0x80070005].

Thanks.

you don't have the permissions to create the XML in the system32 folder. That's why it failed.

I disabled UAC, but still no go.

Is there any other way that i can convert the .etl to .xml ?
