Windows More news on Windows 8. This time around, Gabe Aul, a director of program management in Windows, blogged about the changes Microsoft has made to Windows 8's boot process. The results are impressive - a boot time not much slower than waking from sleep on current Windows 7 and Mac OS X machines. This is, of course, a vital component of getting Windows NT ready for tablets.

I've used most iterations of Windows back to Windows 95, never spent my money on the absolute top-of-the-line hardware, and never had a boot time longer then 30 seconds to usable desktop.

My advice to you is to go through the services and set whatever doesn't need to be automatic to manual. You should notice a big difference with that alone.
