    Cool! I wish I have a stop watch, then I can post mine also in
    you tube and link it here.

    Mine boots in roughly 10 seconds, give or take.
    Still not super bad for using HDD's as opposed to SSD's

    I have a recent Dell 660 with 8 GB of Ram and its CPU is a core i5; a Terabyte HD. Bootup with Windows 8.1 is about 12.5 seconds.

    I've got 8.1 running under VMware that'll do a 12.3 boot time. VM is only
    allocated 1GB of memory and 1 core. Fastest Win8.1 I've seen is on a Vaio
    laptop core i7, 8GB, SSD at 8.7 secs.

    At home I have an old Lenovo core 2 duo 1.8Ghz, 4GB memory with SSD that'll
    post in the 8's running OpenSUSE 13.1.

    These are all times to get to the login prompt.

    Hi
    I auto login, so that adds a few seconds. The actual power on to post
    bios seems to be the bulk of the delay. Now that the add the
    critical-chain option, it's nice to be able to see what is
    actually/potentially slowing things down.

    One wonders if you offline some cores on shutdown and boot from only a
    couple then online the rest of them later if that would speed things
    up even more.... I need to get myself an i5 or i7 system.....

    Whats funny is that on my system everything seems to boot pretty quick despite the fact I dont use SSD's, on my win7 it also boots surprisingly fast in about 20 secs (win 7 can take up to a full minute to boot on some other systems)
    So I must be doing something right, maybe its my seagate drive I dont know.

    Hi
    My HP 2000 boots in around the same time as you with SLED and openSUSE, it has a rotating 320GB drive @ 6Gbps, Windows 8.1 take around 40 seconds as I don't keep it in cache (as in do a full shutdown). Drive speed, amount of RAM, cpu power all makes a difference. It use to be nice to start the computer, go make a coffee and come back to login...

    My desktop boot time measures in minutes. Most of the delay is starting
    services. On the other hand, restore from hibernation is much faster,
    leaving me on the exact point I was previously, with all my applications
    opened.

    I just switch it on and go make tea. When I come back, all is ready, it
    even downloaded messages (which can be slow in my slow internet).
