also if you are running dual boot, will the second count it takes you to push enter?
No programs can actually be running during that time. The OS Hasn't even started up yet.
I'm assuming that it just records the time and compares it to the new time at start up, meaning that if you start boot racer and the power goes out for 7 hours, it will say your reboot time is 25,200 some-odd seconds.
But I don't actually know for sure how it works.
No I think you are wrong with bootracer. Bootracer track your time only when you are actually booting to the desktop. Which mean it does not matter if you power off, it won't time the duration you are power off.
What I think you meant was the script called "restart time". This script logged the system clock as click OK on the restart promp. Then when your system reboot it measure the logged system clock to your current system clock. So it possible to go into bios and change your system clock before you boot to desktop and you can change your result as you see fit.
Actually I think bootracer is more accurate than restart time since it does not time everything in between like statup post raid post etc...
