What's considered a really good boot time?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm getting a Crucial m4 so I plan on trying to get the best boot time possible.

25 seconds is fast. Mine goes in about 35 seconds on my SSD

ive got an m4 myself. time to logon screen is 7-9 seconds (dunno what causes the fluctuations).

my entire user profile is on the mechanical, however, so after i logon the time to desktop is not nearly as good, 20-24 seconds.

program to test is called BootRacer.

I have not done a single optimization "trick". I just followed KShirza1's guide to the T in order to have my user profile be created on the mechanical drive.

edit: time to desktop doesn't mean time until desktop is visible. it means time until ALL services are done starting. i can open a browser window in about 11 seconds, not 21.

hmm, need to see what mine is (and I can compare my SSD with HDD since I just cloned them).
