Twice in Maximum PC there was info on making a computer boot in record time by doing a clean install and a sequence of adding other items. I can't find either article again. Please help. Thanks, ADO

Hmm. im at work so ill have to double check later, but was this the article in the february? I remember a whole bunch of tweaks they said to do. However, i heard some people complaining that it actually slowed there boot times. But, i have my own list of things i like to do. My pc boots fast imo.

1) Use bootvis. not official by MS anymore, but will help your system out.

2) Disable any unecessary services. Remote registry, messenger, etc.

3) Makre the HD your first boot drive in your bios.

I cant remember everything off my head, but you can google for some info. Also, if you got the february edition of MPC i think its in there.

I thought they had the article in the How-To section or the Features section, but I must be mistaken...

Maximum PC's Unauthorized Guide to Windows XP. Summer 2004 Should still be at newstands- Page 26

Feb 2004 Pages 27-28 (then run bootvis)

Other issues possibly.
