Hello ,how much time takes the bios of your computer since the computer
is power on until the OS starts loading?
I make this poll because i´m surprised that Eric has a computer that boots on 5 seconds while mine (asus cuv4x PIII 930Mhz) takes 1 minute.
The bios manufacturer is Award and sometimes with different configurations it starts on 30 seconds.

I have an Intel Motherboard with Pentium 4. Can't remember the bios mark.
It's taking 10 secs. to see the WinXp BootScreen.
WinXp boots at somthing about 45-60 secs.

In my bios there is an option that says:
Enable the Intel Quick boot?

Voted 5-15. And note that my fucking BIOS performs the silly "floppy seek" and I can't disable it because there is no way on the BIOS setup. It started to happend when I flashed a new version, certainly a very hateable and useless behaviour... That stupid thing wastes almost five seconds BTW.

Not much, few seconds to boot, voted 5-15.
Less than a minute to completely load xp on my HP Pavilion laptop.

I have lots of PC's, and most are between 5-15 seconds, but i have a slow Cyrilinstead, Cyrixmix M11, 333MHz, which is very slow, maybe more than 1 min before starting to load the OS.

i have a lot of pc too
my fastest is less than 3 second to launch os
and xp restarts from long standby in less than 20 seconds since power on
it's a notebook Hp portable , very fast, like a cd player

my slowest is more than 1 minute to launch os
it takes 13 sec to show first bios screen and after it takes 30 seconds to start boot koading very slow

but in majority the others takes 15 second for bios and 35 sec for all start

long standby is very good and i will integrate this as default in my os Smile
and i can explore the web instantly

MSI Motherboard here. Relatively new computer (AMD Athlon 64 4600+, 1 GB ram). Takes a while to idenitfy the USB card readers but still under 5 seconds altogather.

Total full reboot time with Windows XP under normal circumstances is under a minute.

A very well done and featurefull BIOS these MSI people put in their motherboards. I recommend it! Very Happy

True:lol: , but when the desktop is loaded, it must spend some time to begin to work well.
And if you install it from a CD Image, the installation process is done twice fast than in a real pc from a cd.

Mines about 1.5 mins.

Takes about 20sec for the BIOS POST, then 30sec each to initialise the 2 SCSI cards...
