Windows 7: Is Win7 running on LGA1151 + Skylake Motherboards?

I have yet to play around with this new chipset very much, but I think it has some kind of ultra fast boot settings that might skip some post stuff. I'll look into it more tonight and post up any results.

Hugo just a thought.

Going off the beaten path just to get a few seconds faster boot can cause problem.
My system boots in about 40 seconds and shut down in 5 seconds. It all depends on many things.
The boot time will vary even on the same computer.

I don't judge a computer on a few seconds difference on boot time. The few seconds difference will not change my life even a little.

Most new motherboards do have something they call (fast boot, quick boot) in bios. When I tried those settings I had problems at times.
Sometimes all the drivers would not load with such a fast boot. Most of the time the drivers that would not load were the USB 3.0 and Ethernet. Reboot and things would work again. Not much of a time saver.
I believe it's more important for a proper boot every time rather than a 10 second faster boot some times.

Just my thoughts gathered through tinkering and testing.

Yea, you are absolutely right about that. I like to have some control over what loads at boot, and often I can monitor it and test, but the truth is there are many subtle programs that either load on boot or delayed which are not readily configurable. So you have to work around them.

It's funny because I texted my brother last night after installing the Intel rapid storage component, and said the same thing, damn this boots fast, and he was saying the same things as you. And I told him that I wasn't bragging, just that it kind of shocked me how fast it was.

I still haven't gotten a chance to play around with the BIOS settings however... the updates were still being downloaded when I went to bed.

Hmm... seems like Windows Update isn't connecting at all. Was still searching for updates this afternoon.

Also Security essentials fails to update virus definitions...

Is there something I forgot to do? I have Internet, can browse fine.

I actually did just that and it worked. All good now.

Although, I bypassed the issue in a much more conventional way.... I just unplugged the cat5 cable.


edit: although, 2 quick questions.... When I got finished the first big mass of updates (over 214 or so), a couple of them failed to install - I have not checked and it subsequently installed about 24 more after that, but does WU normally just re-acquire those that failed the next time it updates? And 2nd, what exactly triggers Silverlight to get installed, as I don't see it in my list yet.

Windows update will continue to offer you uninstalled updates, unless you don`t want them and hide them.

Silver light is a Microsoft thing, nothing triggers it, it`s just offered, you don`t have to install that either, but you should.

Hi,
Unless you use NetFlix you would never probably use Silverlight
And even NetFlix is going to start using html5 sooner or later just like Amazon prime is finally using

Not official, but here is the pertinent graphic. Slated for an August launch. Time to rebuild with Win 10, to be released just about the same time. There's some unofficial benchmarks out there already if you want to pound on Google. Probably from engineering samples.
