Discussion started by ExZeus, Apr 11, 2013.

  1. As you might know, Windows 7 has got major improvements in boot and response time compared to the predecessor Vista. You can also the boot drag race video of Windows7 and Vista showed by Microsoft at Hardware Engineering Conference recently.

    Windows 7 takes just 15-17 seconds to boot up on my (C2D 2.2 GHz, 1 GB RAM) system while Vista not less than 20. Still, you can increase the boot time performance of Windows 7 & Vista using this simple trick. Although you can tweak other settings such as services and startup items, we are focusing on a single tip in this post. Of course, you can read out our “” boot guide for more reference.

    This tip applies to the users who are running multicore processor with Windows 7 or Vista as the operating system. So, follow the below procedure to make it happen.
    1. Type “msconfig” (without quotes) in Vista or Windows 7 start menu search box and hit enter.
    2. Click Continue if you get a UAC prompt.By default, you won’t get a UAC prompt in Windows 7.

    3. Navigate to “Boot” tab and click on “Advanced options” button.
    4. Check the box named “Number of processors” and also select the number of processors from the drop down box.

    5. Click “Ok” and restart to see the time difference.
    6. You are done.
    Note: Microsoft also mentioned the importance of this tweak in their KB959233 article recently. So, go ahead and tweak it right now!
