The Registry+Pagefile init time is 15.70 seconds.. Any suggestions on how to chop that down? Also, the prefetching is taking 35.13 seconds... Driver init time is 17 seconds... Theres got to be a way to get this stuff down... Could this be fixed with new IDE drivers? registry tweaks? Somehow someway? My machine used to boot in 24 seconds... I had to reinstall and now its up to 45+ seconds.. I erased everything in the \windows\prefetch directory so there shouldnt be much being pre-fetched.. Ran bootvis a few times... 1.4Ghz Athlon Epox 8K7A mainboard 512M DDR micron ram Radeon 64M DDR VIVO videocard IBM 7200rpm 60gig harddrives Plexwriter 40/12/40 IDE burner I have one pagefile thats 256M on my d: drive. What else do you need to know? Any help is greatly appreciated!
