Fastest boot time

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
What motherboard avalible for s775 has the fastest BIOS load time? I.E., takes the shortest amout of time from the time you press the power button to the time the OS starts to load.

It'll really depend on the hardware. Most motherboards have a POST (power on self test) that can be disabled to save a second or two, and there are many Windows tweaks that load DLL's only when they are needed, to save boot speed. Any special reason for the need for speed?

I wouldn't expect to get much below 8 or 9 seconds.

No, just wondering. Also, I dont mean affter windows starts to load, I mean how long it would take before the motherboard looks for a boot device.

I know that Intel boards tend to boot quickly. Do you know if the D975XBX is just as fast?
post #7 of 24
i m not sure about that mobo but i think u can practically get most decent mobos to about 5 to 6 seconds at least if u configure ur bios well and take out the unneccessary stuff thats searched for in the beginning. but then i would have to ask why bother? i always ask myself the question why do i want it to go faster? its not like i am doing nuclear research.

Umm, i have a rather old, and slow computer but it only takes about 4-5 seconds to get to the windows load scree, then it takes a day and a half lol.

i would guess the board with the least amount of features as its the fetures that take time.
