Speed Up Windows Vista Boot Time
« on: June 13, 2008, 10:11:34 PM »

When you have a computer with a recent model CPU, chances are it's a dual-core CPU. Both Intel & AMD have been producing dual core CPU's for a few years now. By default, Windows Vista will only use a single core during boot-up. You can easily change this from the System Configuration utility:

   1. In Vista's Start Search type msconfig & hit the [Enter] key on your keyboard
   2. Once System Configuration has started, select the Boot tab and click the Advanced Options button
   3. Check the Number of processors check box, and choose 2 for the number of processors

   4. Click OK twice.

In my testing this reduced my boot-up time around 5 seconds.
