    Boot time


    Although they havenít set it as an official objective, it seems Microsoft have set an unofficial target of achieving a sub 15 seconds boot time with Windows 7. On the Windows 7 Engineering blog Michael Fortin stats that:

    In the lab, a very good system is one that boots in under 15 seconds.

    The fastest Iíve ever managed to get a Windows system to boot is just over a minute, so Iíd be amazed if Microsoft do achieve a sub 15 second boot time for Windows 7. I donít think they will be able to do this alone and will probably need hardware and software manufacturers to play ball.

    Do you think itís achievable?

    A sub 15 second boot time would be awesome, but I just cant see it being achievable out of the lab.

    I may even consider shutting my PC down now and again with that sort of boot speed

    Maybe in the future but now; 15 seconds is too much to hope for!

    I wonder if this is achievable using SSD's

    Less than 15 seconds, cold boot? Maybe if they use some kind of re-writable ram chip for the under the hood business at boot time. I'm sure PC's in the future will be faster than 15 seconds.

    Hmmm looks like they are looking at something for instant on as well - http://news.cnet.com/8301-1001_3-10068080-92.html?part=rss&subj=news&tag=2547-1_3-0-5

    Instant on is good.

    Now if we could get the pc to anticipate what we were going to do/open/manage, that would be a trick

    sub 15 sec boot....

    maybe achievable with an SSD, a 10.000rpm 32mb SATA 2 RAPTOR, a highly OCed CPU (or a core I7 chip), super fast RAM, & W7 .......maybe ???

    all less powerful rigs will never hit that target no matter how well the new OS is coded.

    A 15-sec boot would be awesome. I think we'll need Quad-Core to so or highly OC'ed Dual Cores.
