While SSD's make for some good times note that in my previous post a lot of time is saved by using the BIOS EFI drivers
rather than the legacy option ROMs. FWIW taskmanager shows about 900MB+ of RAM in use, 50+ services and ~36 processes. Best reported time so far is 12 seconds.
While results for 7 are not bad, for some reason running "Restart" with W8, which shows the desktop quicker than 7 (thanks to ultra fast boot) it takes quite some time afterward for the restart box to be displayed and consequently reports longer restart times. W8 also delays other programs that are placed in the startup folder. Any known reason for this? IOW is W8 not really ready when reaching the DT, in which case are the start up times really not that much different between 7 and 8?
