How to speed up boot process under Windows Vista or Windows 7
Posted 02 April 2011 - 12:19 AM
I will try to find a good driver, maybe from other mobo or chipset that would match, cause for my mobo i have the latest driver from the gigabyte support website.
I will try to contact amd support if i`l not find any good driver..
Again, thank you for your time and for helping, i will post back when i`ll get new drivers.

I Found a raid driver that fixed the problem with the 10s enum.
Now its loading storport.sys from second 0 to 1 and another storport.sys (i do not know why needs 2 storport.sys) from second 1 to 2,
Then waits about 2,5 seconds until begin loading anything, (better than those 10 seconds).
But i can't find out why it does not loading the next steps wright befor enum at second 2, why it waits until second 4,5 ??!
And another question is, why there are so white spaces betwen procesess, as i see in the file, the proceses are started and finished in about the same time, what delays the next process !?
The total time is about 14 seconds, i want to cut those delays when it does nothing, just siting in idle !?
I have uploaded the results to take a look on http://allschematics.com/result.zip

it boots in 14s to the desktop and is booted completely in 14.5 seconds.
The IDE channel 0 enum causes the 2.5 seconds delay.
- <phase name="bootStart" startTime="25" endTime="4845" duration="4820"> <pnpObject name="PCIIDE\IDEChannel\4+25242dfa+0+0" type="Device" activity="Enum" startTime="1996" endTime="4497" duration="2501" prePendTime="0" description="IDE Channel" friendlyName="ATA Channel 0" />
Which devices have you connected to the ATA Channel 0?

I have on IDE-0 a normal 7200rpm HDD. I do not have cd-rom, or dvd-rom.
I was thinking that that hdd will be, but i disabled from bios the ide channel, and nothing changed...
There still was 2 storports, and there still was the delay from second 2 to 4, so i`ve enabled it again..
No change in delays with or without the ide hdd.
Also if u look in drivers delay, some are loading on second ~6 , some on second ~10, some on second ~12.
But what he is doing between second 6 and 10 ?! or betwen 10 and 12 ?!
All the services i see them starting and finishing at sec 12, what delays them not loading earlyer !?
i think my cpu and ram can handle them easy and earlyer,
How much seconds to boot you consider to be a "fast boot" ?!
Can be the cause my hdd speeds !? my raid have an average of 7ms access time.

I had nothing on IDE-0 , but i had IDE-0 and IDE-1 in device manager.
So i disabled those 2 ide and the pci ide connector too, and now the delay has gone.
Check for the new test at http://allschematics.com/result.zip
What else can i do to reduce the boot time !? Is there any drivers that delays boot !?
Thank you Sir.

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:

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.

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:
Number of downloads: 5

can you help me with my boot time problem.
You can download my report here: http://sites.google....ummary_boot.zip
As you can see the complete boot time is : bootDoneViaPostBoot="292650"
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

<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 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.
