    I'm just wondering how long it take your computer from pushing the power button to the login screen.

    Mine takes 35 seconds.

    Intel Celeron 2.0Ghz, 768mb PC2100 ram, Maxtor 80gb 7200 rpm 6Y080LO

    Slow as s***. But that's probably because it has 5 HDDs in it. And I can live with it taking a while to boot as that means I have more storage than almost anyone. :)

    I guess around 35 seconds to login screen, would be faster if my BIOS didn't try to detect IDE drives, which is a bit of a waste of time as I only have a DVDRW on IDE lol

    Will time it properly later, too much stuff open at the moment to reboot and time it

    48 seconds, because I do not overclock in the BIOS sas my board does not allow it so I looks out on an extra 400Mhz, and all that IDE drive searchin crap + VMI Data pool updates n all that :(

    my laptop is 42 seconds.

    Count from when you push the powerbutton to when you get to the login / welcome screen or to when your background loads.

    Laptop:

    Freescale PowerPC G4 1.67Ghz
    2x512 PC2700 RAM
    Fujitsu 5,400 rpm 80gb 2.5"

    15-20 seconds not including POST, more like 30 from pressing the button.
    3-4 seconds from a suspend.

    i do have this strange boot pattern ~ 1 in 100 starts. it will just sit there for 2 mins seemingly lifeless only to shoot back to activity.
    it's rare enough not to be a bother but something’s happening i don't understand. :confused:

    only another 300gig to top me then :p
    not that i'm showing off or anything.
