I have eliminated as much as I could from startup, first using autoruns.
Then I ran the comand as suggested in your first post which appeared to run fine, and reduced my boot time from 3.5 minutes to 2 ( according to soluto)
But when I run the command to generate the second xml file I get following warning, and the xml file is empty
xperf: warning: applying restriction of access for trace processing 7931 Events were lost in this trace. Data may be unreliable.....
Some potential issues,
1] The readyboost services doesnt appear in services list (services.exe)
although it does appear in the registry and its start command is set to 0
2] OS shows as win7RTM in the xbootmgr.log although it is actually win7 with sp1 (home premium x64, acer oem)
3] This is the only other susipcious line in the log (I think)
Failed to save prefetcher data (C:\Windows\prefetch\layout.ini) in cab archive (stage 1, error 0)
I carried the whole procedure 3 times and the result is the same everytime, any ideas to what the problem maybe?
The warning suggests increasing the MinBuffers, MaxBuffers and BufferSize for xperf, I tried this but I still get the warning
