Windows 7: Boot time

03 Feb 2009   #11

Vista Ult64, Win7600

Hi, I dont know if I should post my problem here, if I am in the wrong spot maybe someone will direct me to the right spot,anyway long story short the other day I could not get into windows ,I tried everything and in the end I stuck my windows cd in to see if it would fix it and lo and behold it did in a few mins ,prob was that it lost the default boot os anyway its fixed now but my os's are now called windows 7 and vista RECOVERED, ok I can live with that, but since the fix it is taking forever to boot into either system, so I ticked the box in the msconfig section[OS BOOT INFORMATION] to see what was happening, and after it loads the drivers it just seems to sit there for ages and then at the last min before it goes into windows screen I see a few lines like[ file system clean], as if it had being checking ALL my discs first before boot, might there be a TUT on how to stop what ever its doing that I can't find and if so if someone could show me the way that would be great THANKS.

Windows 7 RC 7100 32bit/64bit

If I understood well, you have enabled both detecthal and 2 CPUs in msconfig.

To fix that, boot from your Windows 7 DVD and select repair computer.
Then use the command prompt option under repair, to enter command prompt.

In command prompt, type:

bcdedit /deletevalue {default} numproc

...and reboot to see if its fixed. if this doesn't fix your problem, you can also try typing

bcdedit /deletevalue {default} detecthal

Hi thanks for reply I have the CPU box ticked for four[NUMBER OF PROCESSORS] and thats all,The box I ticked to see if I could see anything was ,MSCONFIG/BOOT/ OS BOOT INFORMATION at the bottom of the page ,it shows you what is booting but it is not very informative, so do you think I should still do as you said. THANKS

I now have build 7600 of W7 x64 Pro installed, and for the most part, it is acting as expected, with one notable exception. It remains on the Windows Starting logo screen for ~60-80 seconds. Once at desktop, it hums along as well as always. This was not characteristic of the beta or RC of x64,...
