also, on standard cmos, is the drive in Ide Channel 6 the system drive, or the other drive?

General consensus around here is that tweak doesn't do anything. Feel free to try it, but I bet it doesn't help.

Not the way this restart script works. It counts the BIOS and POST phase of the bootup. 15-20 seconds is incredibly fast and would require an SSD to accomplish. Of course, I guess this would be "ideal".

HPET is 32-bit. Are you running 64-bit?
Disable modem ring and pme wakeup
Disable parallel port (unless you are using it)
Did that. Nothing changed. Well, I really hope that the cause isn't HDD, because it is painful.

So you're saying that changing the first boot device to Hard Disk did not make any change?

That's right, that didn't changed anything.

And yes, the drive in Ide Channel 6 is the system drive.

hmm, that is very odd. I have that Same screen, but it is only there for like 5 seconds.
If you go to advanced bios, then go to the bottom where it says "show full screen logo during post."
Is that enabled? if it is, try setting it to disabled. I dunno if it'll make any difference, but I think I noticed a little faster boot time with it disabled.

Actually there is no option like advanced bios and "show full screen logo during post".

ok, I was talking about advanced bios features, but tell me this, do you get a big logo as soon as you start up? If not, then you're bios probably doesn't have that feature.

the problem with that "tweak" is its not there to speed up the boot process , windows will use all available cores on boot anyway by default , that option is there only so you can disable certain cores on bootup for troubleshooting purposes eg if you suspect a dodgy cpu or core stopping your pc booting

Forwox changing the boot order will only speed your boot up by seconds if that , even if you have a bootable cd in the drive it will stall for 3 seconds to give you the option to press a key to boot from CD i doubt its your problem.

i notice you have "update success" on your boot screen (at the bottom) does it say this every time? had you changed anything in your bios before the boot that that screenshot is from? Im not talking about boot order.

If it stalls there just before the system files start to load it cpuld be a os problem

could you goto your start menu click acessories then click the run option , in the resulting window type msconfig and return select the boot tab and put a check (tick) in the boot log box

then reboot after reboot search for this ntbootlog.txt it should be here C:\Windows or C:\WINNT copy and paste it up so we can have a looky at it

next thing would be this Download details: Microsoft Windows 7 SDK

it can be used to do a detailed boot trace and let you know exactly what program or driver is causing the slow bootup

Thanks for your time arche123. "Update success" is there every time when I start/ restart the system. Okay, boot log file is here.
