    I'm on a quest for the shortest boot time that will give me a functional laptop for net surfing and remote desk top.... I'm thinking of setting up my tx2500 to dual boot with an OS that will get me up and running the fastest.

    One thought is a Linux based OS but everything I read states problems with this and the tx2500. Does anyone have the best (successful) Linux based suggestion?

    Right now it's 1 minute + from power on to completely booted up with my 2.1 gHz, 3gb ram tx2500 and Vista 64bit. I'm sure that my system isn't optimized but I've been reading up on it and I'm on my way.

    Post your boot time, OS, RAM, processor speed, and any significant tweaks.

    Thanks,:D

    to boost start up times you can get a 7200rpm hdd or a SSD. Not sure on how much linux would affect your boot time though.

    EDIT: thought just occured to me, odds are it has a 7200rpm hard drive. SSD is still a option though.

    They do not come with a 7200RPM drive, so upgrading to that would help a bit, but mine takes forever it seems ha.

    are you sure you didn't switch the full boot and hibernate times?

    yes more details. :eek:

    i'm about 55seconds from cold boot to finger print longon plus another 45s from the "welcome" message (after a finger scan) to display till the spining circle thing stops on the cursor.

    AVG, zonealarm
    single 2gb stick
    this is on a tx1000 though

    1) Modified service profile = Disabling useless services that run in the background. Other than core windows services necessary for normal function, Kapersky, Daemon Tools, Trillian, and tablet stuff, everything else is disabled. I run only 51 processes on startup.

    2) Disable TMM.

    3) Defrag your boot sector

    4) more drastically, you can disable indexing, defender, superfetch, and you fingerprint scanner.

    All of these steps are found in this thread (Word of advice, don't touch the easycleaner recommended in the page)

    How do you do that?

    ~~~Update: I found out how.
    Code:
    Start>cmd [Enter]
    defrag c: -b
    And can you list which services you disabled? I disabled a bunch, but others I did not know if they were important or not.
