Decreasing Boot Time

Wednesday, August 13, 2008
Microsoft has made available a program to analyze and
decrease the time it takes to boot to WindowsXPThe program is called BootVis

Uncompress the file.

For a starting point, run Trace / Next Boot + Driver Delays
This will reboot your computer and provide a benchmark

After the reboot, BootVis will take a minute or two to show graphs of your system startup.
Note how much time it takes for your system to load (click on the red vertical line)
Then run Trace / Optimize System
Re-Run the Next Boot + Drive Delays
Note how much the time has decreased
Mine went from approximately 33 to 25 seconds.
