For boot time I'm not sure, I don't think it can get any faster

Here's a list of tweaks you can do to increase your performance in Windows.

u can try to upgrade to the vertex 3. for better IOPS. i dont think raid0 helps because of the increase in latency

There is a way to use all your cores instead of 1 i think to boot faster. i did it on vista once but i cant remember and now im on 7 anyway. Im afriad i dont know exactly what to look for but i figured this would point you in the right direction. 1 thing i am sure of though is just reduce the amount of start-up programs.

go to RUN and type MSCONFIG then BOOT change the time out from 30 to 3. that will save you lots of time, then go to Start up and remove the selection fromany UN-need softwares that start up with windows. simple leave the AV on and remove the others.

one more thing, change the boot pro. from the BIOS let your main OS drive goes first. by defualt it's 2nd after the DVD drive or what ever there. by doing this you will boot your pc with in 11 sec.

How long does it take for your system to reboot right now? I don't mean the time it takes to boot, but the time it takes to restart from within Windows.

To find out, here's a tool that I prefer to use:

For best results, reboot first, wait like 30 seconds after Windows is finished booting, and then run this tool.

Edit: msconfig is for diagnostic purposes only (it's used when you're experiencing problems). Using that number of cores option doesn't do anything anyway.

Go to control panel -> system and security -> administrative tools -> view event logs
expand applications and services -> microsoft -> windows -> diagnostics-performance

should look like this


here you can see programs or services that add extra time to your boot or shutdown.
look for ones with a larger time. if it is a service or program that you dont necessarily need, go to start menu and type in system configuration. go to the startup tab and you can disable some here. hope this helps

Its not just for diagnostic. Everyone should use it to maintain a lite startup program list. Sometimes the more people install stuff the longer boot overtime will take. Using msconfig is a great way to shorten it.
