How do I improve boot speed?

1

Your boot is very slow compared to mine. About 15 seconds booting

First of all , did you installed your Vertex after windows setup or did you also took a new windows install ? If you installed windows on your vertex without using Vista SP1 or Windows 7, your SSD is not aligned. Furthermore Vista does not supports TRIM , which also helps to make your SSD run faster. (It optimizes your SSD , google for Windows 7 TRIM) . Also do you have the latest firmware? (1.30)

Copied from tweakers.net (dutch hardware forum) and translated for you

Shortlist:

* Alignen (aligning): yes
* Defragmentation: no
* Indexing: no
* Swapfile on SSD: yes
* leave10% empty: your choice but highly recommended
* Raidcontroller: your choice
* Cachingsoftware (Hard drive data cache): yes if using JMicron

you could do alot of things to make your SSD run faster.

I personally recommend you to backup your files and install windows 7, but before...

Avira System Speedup can reduce the time your device takes to boot. The Boot Optimizer analyzes the applications and services that your device starts while booting. All non-essential services will be identified and stopped with the next boot process.


Optimize the boot time


Click the Boot Optimizer icon in the left navigation bar.


Note
To undo changes made during the process, System Speedup has to create a restore point before optimizing. Click the Arrow symbol of the Analyze button and make sure the check mark is activated.


Click Analyze.
Once the analyze process has been carried out, the device startup list will be displayed. The recommendations are highlighted green in the “New Status” column.
An alternative startup can be set by clicking the drop down menu.


Click Next to update the startup status. Select the boot time optimization level. (available...

Duckhook,

I don't have any quiet splash statement in my grub. And -- I see a bunch of text text flying by as my machine boots (processes loading?) I can't really tell as they fly by so fast. Is there a log that records what appears on screen?

So, I put a stop watch on my boot. Upon cold start it took 55 seconds to get to my MDM login prompt. Typed login and PW and at 1:32 I have a fully loaded desktop.

Then I reset to auto-login. Cold booted. Got to Desktop again at 1:32.

So it seems that the boot time reported by bootchart is from power on all the way to desktop. 37 seconds for a desktop to appear seems slow to me. I don't have any widgits or panel apps starting....just a sysmon CPU graph, weather, clock, network applet, battery, volume...

As you might know, Windows 7 has got major improvements in boot and response time compared to the predecessor Vista. You can also watch the boot drag race video of Windows7 and Vista showed by Microsoft at Hardware Engineering Conference recently.

Windows 7 takes just 15-17 seconds to boot up on my (C2D 2.2 GHz, 1 GB RAM) system while Vista not less than 20. Still, you can increase the boot time performance of Windows 7 & Vista using this simple trick. Although you can tweak other settings such as services and startup items, we are focusing on a single tip in this post. Of course, you can read out our “How to speedup Windows?” boot guide for more reference.

Guide to speed up Windows 7 boot process

This tip applies to the users who are running multicore processor with Windows 7 or Vista as the operating system. So, follow the below procedure to make it happen.

Step 1: Type “msconfig” (without quotes) in Vista or Windows 7 start menu search box...

Adding more Random Access Memory (RAM) can increase computer speed, though it is not guaranteed and often depends on other factors. If a lack of RAM is the only reason for the slowness in an otherwise fast system, then adding more memory will typically improve the operating speed. When there are other problems aside from a shortage of RAM, adding more memory might help, but those secondary factors need to be addressed for the best possible performance. In some cases, a computer might simply be too old to run newer applications efficiently, if at all.

Checking RAM

RAM usage on a computer can be checked in different ways, depending on the operating system (OS). On a machine running some version of Windows™, the easiest way to see how much memory the computer has is to view the System screen in the Control Panel. The Task Manager shows how this memory is being used; pressing the Ctrl + Alt + Del keys brings up this program or the option to open it. In this tool, the...

If there's a universal truth among computer users, it's that all of them want their PC to start up faster. Nobody in the history of computing ever said, "Wow, I love this 2-minute wait between pressing the power button and actually using my machine!"

You can tweak Windows so it boots faster, of course. For instance, you can install more RAM, reduce the number of startup programs, and optimize your Registry. But let's take a look at the other piece of the puzzle: the Basic Input-Output System, or BIOS. This motherboard-hosted area of your PC controls what happens the moment you press the power button. And with a few simple changes, you may be able to cajole your system into starting a little quicker--maybe even a lot quicker.

Before we get started, let me issue a few warnings. First, monkeying with the BIOS can have unintended (and undesirable) results. If you aren't terribly tech-savvy, you might want to steer clear. Though you're unlikely to inflict any permanent...
