Your fastest SSD Boot times! - Page 3

By the way, my fastest is 5 seconds on my good old Sata II Macbook. Using a 120 GB Sandisk SSD. Even with the Apple Start up screen.

Do you mean one particular setting in bios or various things? What I had done a few days back was disable the Gigabyte POST screen ( so now it just looks like a DOS screen instead of the colourful bitmap) which helped a little.

Used to be 28 and my cold boot used to be 25, but it's increased slightly since installing all windows updates and various programs. I'm sata II and on a 3 year old AMD/Gigabyte rig, but would sata III and a newer build really knock off 10+ seconds? My shutdown is 8 seconds so not too bad,

I think somewhere in sean's guide you can shave off some shutdown time but that would be the time you're allowing the programs to close itself before it auto kills it, could be good could be bad like if you forgot to save something then you can cancel it right away, if you have it at a short time it will kill it and reboot quickly so theres pros and cons to it.

As for startup just have the basic stuff, dont need things like java updater, google updater, check the startup processes and see what is really not needed. I have steam, dropbox, my printer, MSE, and all that jazz that automatically starts up.

For BIOS I would just disable everything other than your main drive for BOOT priority, there may or may not be a setting for scan delay so that can shave some time off of your boot.

Some motherboards have new features that does rapid start or fast reboot which i dont recommend because sometimes it doesnt even save anything from previous post, for example I was working on a client's PC and when i had that option enabled and rebooted it didnt even detect the reboot and some programs were being anal, so watch out for those tongue.gif

Actually, only about 1 second less time b/w SATA 2 and SATA 3...

this thread is kinda useless, or should i say extremely flawed and inaccurate. simply posting ssd make and your boot time means almost nothing. boot time is extremely dependent on your computer hardware configuration as well as external devices connected.

for example, i have 1xSSD 6xHDD 1xDVD in my system and a handful of usb devices. my boot time with all that is just under 30 secs, but if i disable everything that is not crucial to run windows my boot is under 20 secs. does that mean that disconnecting all those hard drives made my ssd magically faster? no it doesn't.

when computer boots the more devices you have, the more boot time checks will be performed, the longer it will take to boot.

I don't know why there is such an obsession with boot times anyway. Lets be honest, if it takes 30secs or 20secs to boot to desktop does anyone really care that much? I doubt it, as long as it's not 2mins. Boot times should never been shown to prove an SSD's performance anyway, it has too many variables that could influence results. And it's not a reason to choose one drive over another, there's far more to it than that.

There's no scan delay, fast reboot or rapid start in my BIOS, but it's a pretty basic 3 year old Gigabyte dual bios board.

This is my startup where I've now unticked the four boxes at the bottom:



I haven't even transferred a bunch of other programs from my old drive to my SSD yet so my boot startup will get fuller and boot time might yet get slower, not sure.

And in services, I've now disabled:

Adobe acrobat update service
Fax
Google update service
Logitech blutooth service
Windows backup
Windows defender

I've no idea what else I can safely untick in services, and there's too many to list here. Boot time hasn't changed at all, but at least it's a consistent 30 secs reboot and 25/26 secs start up boot.

What SSD are you using? -- Samsung 830
SATA II or SATA III? -- SATA III
Which OS? -- Windows 7 Pro (X64)
Boot Time? -- ~15

It was a tad bit faster in AHCI, but going to RAID added a second or two for the little raid detection screen. Always wondered if that can be bypassed....

also to the person above, I had to install the latest Asus p9x79 deluxe BIOS before I could get great boot times. Before the BIOS update, the PC would take at least 10 seconds to fully POST pushing my windows loads into the low 20s. So try a new BIOS if there is one.

What SSD are you using? -- Samsung 830, 128 GB

Which OS? -- Windows 8
Boot time? -- 22 secs startup, 4 secs shutdown

My startup would be shorter if my motherboard splash screen didn't last three seconds, and show a "loading operating system..." prompt for another couple seconds haha

I imagine if I had a newer motherboard like my brother's ASRock Z77, my boot time would improve drastically. His M4 boots Windows 7 in around 25 seconds, if he had Windows 8 it would be even shorter I imagine.
