You misunderstand the function. This setting is applied at boot time, but is in effect for the current session (all subsequent sessions if unchanged).
Any impact on boot timing relative to this setting, measured by stopwatch or any other process, can only be related to allocation or virtual memory tabulation. Windows will not boot any faster or slower in the mean
once the system has its unique minimum memory configuration satisfied. In other words, if a machine is perfectly configured with 4 GB RAM (unique minimum memory configuration satisfied
), increasing the physical RAM to 8 GB will not reduce boot time.* *Given that no other hardware changes are deployed.
