Windows 7 Boots In 11 Seconds

Microsoft and Intel have been going on the charm offensive this week, talking up Windows 7. According to the BBC, both firms said they collaborated more closely then ever to deliver a product they are proud of. At the same joint press event, wintel put on demonstrations of Windows 7ís improved battery life and quicker boot times.

The improvements in Windows 7 battery life are well documented, but not the improvements in Windows 7 boot times. At the event, wintel showed a windows 7 system that booted up in 11 seconds. The system in use was pretty impressive (quad-core i7 CPU + SSD drive), but Iím still a bit amazed by an 11 second boot time. The amazing Windows 7 boot time was achieved by the boot process running across all four cores and all eight threads of the i7 processor:

I was pretty impressed with my non-SSD Windows 7 system that boots up in under a minute, but I now might have to dip into the bank account and buy a SSD drive! Iím holding off doing an upgrade just yet, as I think Iím going to build a whole new Windows 7 power rig next year and give my current machine to my wife.

That 11 seconds is meaningless unless they do a comparative test with other operating systems. Good for marketing only.

I somewhat remember a Mac that my friends wife had that would boot up instantly. I believe I was still on the 9x kernel at the time and freaked when I saw it.

I'm wondering if they are measuring after the BIOS screen... because my BIOS takes like 8 seconds to finish.

Also I'm wondering what SSD they are using (probably Intel's)

So would my X25-m 80GB G2 with upcoming i7-820QM (Dell XPS 16) boot up around the same?

No - but it should be fast. Please note that the system was an Intel reference system. That means everything was high-end and tweaked. The goal for that machine was to boot fast. The goal for your machine will be to work well.

True. But I bet it will boot pretty quick though. Good enough for me atm anyway.
