I have been investigating mine a lot recently. It takes 18 seconds for vista loading page to come up. I watch the green bar cross for 20 seconds. It was 10, but when I installed the south bridge drivers, it jumped to 20. Fingerprint login in about 7 more seconds. and in about 15 seconds everything is ready to go. Total time has been around 60-75 seconds. I have a 120 GB SSD, Clean Vistax64 install. I haven't disabled any services yet.
