 most people turn off windows seach.
 disable hiber.
 set up services to disable any they wont use and windows items such as tablet so on.
 as for my experence i been doing testing on boot times for a decade so dont take my word for it,test it yourself.
 mayby a fine cpu like john has a sandy i7 cores wont make a difference but on a lower one it will.
 windows 7 would not left it in the system config menu if it was not vailid.
 i did the beta on win 7 and vista,xp and boot times was a huge focas on 7.
 the many services of 7 will be 8 major focas.
 i have had some of the fastest record boot times on a desktop without EFI bios and sata 3 so i pretty solid on what works and what wont.
 i know more ram will slow a boot and what is pure snake oil.
 the best performance possible on the sandys is port 0 sata 3 drive like a m4 or a samsung 830.msata is still sata 2 mode only even on a sandy.and msata drives never run as fast as there biger brothers do.
my B575 boots 24-26 offical time in lenovo EE boot record.
thats on a samsung 830 64GB on a brazos platform.
i am sata 2 caped for some reason sandys are not.
it probley the hudson chipset is not a true A50M.
there a few chipsets for the brazos platform not all are sata 3 6.0Gps.
the brazos x are i belive.
 45 secs is not good for a ssd thats platter time on a well setup win 7 installed system.
i also have 6gb of ram that i am testing not as fast as the 4 by a tiny difference.
 a fine cpu like a i7 2620 should be in the low 20's if not around 18 or so.
that a real stomper i bet in the right hands mayby a 15 and over is posible.
i can post a screen shot if you like.
Please don't spread rumors and bad information:
UPDATE: * Time from "Starting Windows" to desktop appearing is only about 17 sec.
And that's with security enabled. If I disabled security, it would be even faster.
