Windows 7: Boot Advanced Option (Maximum Memory)

Boot Advanced Option (Maximum Memory)

I've seen a tutorial before that if you're using a Processor to check on "Number of Processors" and select 2 supposedly it helps booting up into Windows faster.

How about the "Maximum Memory"?
Do you think it'll help if I used all the memory to boot Windows?

and if not, what do you think it's good for?

Those options are present for testing configuration options (software testing, driver testing, debugging).

Any reference to setting these options to aid in booting or increasing system performance is nonsense.

The settings are there to limit performance, not to increase it.

Unless your computer is already so broken and reporting incorrect information to the OS. Windows already knows how many processors and or cores you have. It also already knows how much memory you have. Telling it things it knows is rather pointless. Just like the "SecondLevelDataCache" tweak.

No. A phantom tweak. Did you notice a difference? Nobody else does either.

Not in the slightest. Those options are for launching the OS, the boot loader doesn't read that information. Second the computer knows the capabilities of the computer without being told, this is what the BIOS does.

Right, i didnt notice any diference.
But when i shutdown the pc notice that the process appear on black layout to kill the process.... i read that if we change the regestry, wait time to kill process it's faster...

logicearth will expound in greater detail, but I would suggest not setting the value too low. It is best to know why a process is slow to die before you shoot it.

Most of these tweaks are people believing they are smarter then the computer, which is never the case honestly. Since one brought up killing hung applications during shut down can cause problems. There could be a race condition for I/O operations to save to disk, as well all know the HDD is way to slow. Never ever set "AutoEndTasks" to 1. If you get a race condition and the applications never finish there I/O operations before the timeout, data lose of corruption can occur.
