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

Recommended Posts

maxXPsoft    27

I imaged back to see and cold boot before was over 90 seconds so good enough for me. Just through bios on this dell takes 20 seconds so not much can do there. I know how to look at them things cause I used bootvis in XP

Hi I have followed your instructions to speed up my boot time but I have come across a problem.

In my command prompt window I get the message " xbootmgr is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file. "

Can anyone shed any light on this and help me out please.

Thanks in advance, Brian.

you have to install the Windows Performance Toolkit first. Read the first sentence.

I did install the WPT. But I tried to do the speed up before rebooting ( Stupid I know ).

I have since rebooted and the problem has gone away. Thanks for your help.
