I know I could just try...but...so...lazy... any thoughts?
and SSD ftw x2. IMO theres no point to having a sandybridge without a ssd. as you can see from the boot times people are posting it looks like a ssd takes up to 30 seconds off a boot.
Damn asus and marvell bios take 67% of my boot time.
Also my work computer is so bad I start it up and go do something else for atleast 5 mins. Even after the desktop appears its useless for atleast another minute or 3. I F ing hate McAffe corprate antivirus.
You can disable the Marvell controllers in the BIOS. I don't use them but during boot I still get 2 splash screens. The first one, then a blank screen (where the previous Marvell searching screen would be) and then a second one that doesn't last as long. The gap inbetween is still there, but it doesn't take as long now. I can't access the UEFI on the first splash screen though, has to be the second. Weird
