normally Windows should learn it on every Reboot. But with this method you can speed up the "learning" of ReadyBoot.

Which error message do you get? You are the first person, who is unable to run it.

i just got around to running this on a machine.

i tried my laptop since its the machine i reboot the most.

Windows 7 Ent Dell d830 c2d@2G 2Gb ram

i tried 3 test boots before installing the sdk (timed as a cold start from power button to C+A+D to login)

1 min 45 seconds

3 min 10 seconds

1 min 55 seconds

after the 6 reboots (and 6 logins and answering 6 UAC prompts between boots) i get:

1 min 21 seconds

1 min 20 seconds

1 min 25 seconds

1 min 21 seconds

1 min 22 seconds

not a major increase but if nothing else its more consistent (wish i woulda taken a few more "before" times)

30s improvement is ok. If you can upload the latest etl (compressed as 7z or RAR) I can take a look at it and tell you what may causes delays and what can be improved.

Hi,

This post is great and I already have got a small improvement in boot times from following the instructions.

Now I would like to see if I can squeeze a further improvement by analysing the results of a boot trace. Unfortunately, the results don't mean anything to me so I'm hoping somebody will have a look at them and give me some advice.

The results of the test are here: http://rapidshare.com/files/412666586/boot_BASE_CSWITCH_DRIVERS_POWER_1.zip

Thanks for any assistance.

Hi Chris,

your Windows boots in 30s to the desktop and is fully booted in 61 seconds.

What I see is that the PostBoot Takes 30s. This means the tools which run at login (startup) are slowing down your System.

I can see that you have Norton AntiVirus (NAV, ccsvchst.exe (1764), 0x00000043, Running) installed. This service hangs and causes a huge IO activity. I hate the yellow pest. You should use other freeware tools like Avira AntiVir (http://www.free-av.com/en/index.html) or Microsoft Security Essentials.

Next, run AutoRuns (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx) and disable all not needed tools (Live Messenger, iTunes, iPod). only start them when you need them.

After doing this run the optimization again.

Hi Andre,

Okay, Norton Anti Virus is gone and replaced with Microsoft Security Essentials.

I have the AutoRuns tools but aren't sure what to disbale. There are various tabs across the top - I want to make sure I don't disable anything important. I guess the most likely looking tab is the one labelled "Logon".

Am I looking at the correct items?

Thanks,

Chris

yes, look under Logon and disable the automatic startup of the Live Messenger.

Hi Chris,

the boot is 5 seconds slower. The prefetcher has several misses. Did you run the optimization again?

Hi Chris,

good news, the boot is now faster. Your Windows boots completely in 40 seconds and the prefetcher is working better. That's an improvement of 20 seconds.

Now you can enjoy your faster Windows.

Gave this a try and looks like it went from 74 down to 34 seconds which is great for reboot. :hello:

but cold boot is 54 and didn't look before

if you think it's still too much, make a complete trace and share the file.
