Possible but not recommended. Mucking around in there can break your startup and require a re-install

I am sure if there's a safe and reasonable way to speed up the OS loading process, Microsoft would have done it already.

Hi,

not really... Few months ago I've uploaded on YT my video with booting Windows 7 RC 7100 build:

as you can see it's only ~22sec and before that I did nothing to increase boot time.

Now I have Windows 7 Home Premium and I get the same times, I have all application installed on my system, but my startup list is very short:

Boot time starts from the moment you turn on your computer (push the power button). I didn't see any BIOS boot-up counted in the time, which is not a fair comparison to everyone else's boot time.

My computer takes 62 seconds to boot up, but that's counting from the moment I press the power button (loading BIOS, memory error check (all 8 GB), loading SATA HDD device driver, etc).

I thought that OP talking about Windows boot up not BIOS, to be honest I don't care and I didn't include BIOS results because they are different for everyone - it depends what hardware (HDD,FDD,optical drives) you have installed, also it includes and tests your memory via POST screen (if you have more GB of RAM it will take longer).

Maybe one of you guys can tell me why my bootup time has increased, My Restart time on old system was 60sec, Had XFX motherboard with Q6600 2.4ghz, 6gb corsair xms2 ram, 2 300gb HD ran in raid 0, 9800gx2 GC

My new system that i just build yesterday is in my specs and its restart time is 105 sec, Why such a increase with a better computer? Is it because of the raid on one comp and single drive on other?
