Wait...5 second from the moment the load bar comes up 'till the time the desktop appears?? That's impossible. It's not even about CPU, its about hard drive speed.

The only way that is happening is if you put the computer into sleep mode. Mine will show the desktop about 5 seconds after i hit the power button. But there's no way your friend is cold booting into windows in 5 seconds.

That still won't come close to 5 seconds. Some mobos won't even POST in 5 seconds.

Well, i can put my computer into sleep mode... I just hit the little C- Thingy next to the lock button on my taskbar. Its not 5 seconds, but maybe closer to 10-15. It isnt a real "reboot" but when I do it the computer shuts completely down, then it can come back in about 15 seconds. It comes back if you hit a key, mouse key, or any computer button. Pretty nifty. But as I said, that isnt right from post, its more like resuming a computer from hibernate, but faster.

Yes, thats not that hard to do. You do it with a stripped out XP benchmarking install.
Nothing loads at startup.
No accessories.
Desktop w/o icons/background/screensaver/etc..
Minimal services.
Minimal drivers.
No networking.

That kind of stuff.

I had a stripped out XP Pro that would reboot from desktop to desktop in 23 seconds. That was a on a 939 motherboard. Of course that kind of OS install is useless for anything but benchmarking.

Google can show you how.

There still is no way you'd be able to go from initial boot to desktop in 10 seconds... even with 3 Velociraptors in RAID...

Post a vid of it booting in 10 seconds or less, and I'll gladly admit that I was wrong... but if not, then don't bother posting...

RAM can't hold data when there's no power running to it. We're talking about a cold boot here so the RAM is out of the question

3 raptors in RAID won't do it either. It'll cut the time by a pretty good amount, but 5 seconds total, come on.

Exactly. We want proof, or you're just wasting your time. I could say i got 20,000 on 3dmark06, but would anyone believe me without proof?
