    You're not going to make any version boot up "lightning fast" on a mechanical hard drive without removing so much of the functionality that it doesn't do what you need it to do anymore.

    some of the modern! x86 processors do that indeed.

    But i guess thats not the point for windows to do the lightning fast boot.

    theirs another thread open on this useless subject changing the settings on the msconfig will not change anything if your running a mechanical drive.

    I have 8gb memory so x86 would be a waste. nobody uses x86 nowadays many people can already afford more than 4gb of memory. I think its all in the tweakings, I use @LiteOS windows ltsb 64bit lite with a little tweakings I was able to make it boot much faster. like on the login in of administrator its just seconds and no more delay in on spinning. My processor is A8-7600

    but if I use untouch ltsc or ltsb its taking a lot of time when booting..

    Can you elaborate on the exact modifications you made to have it boot a little bit faster?

    if hes using a lite OS with pretty much everything disable just the essential for booting the OS maybe less stress on a mechanical drive....would be nice if he could upload a video of machine booting up so we can see how it performs.

    Urban legend. Just use Paepatch or actvatate as server and your artificial 3.xGB limit will magically disappear


    Read above. The 4GB limit is a fake, a non existent problem. But when you have 40 VMs running in a server the resources spared in terms of storage, CPU power, and used RAM matters, A LOT.

    So only ignorant kiddos or ameteurish sysadmins thinks that x86 is dead/outdated/worthless/whatever

    Sure. An LTSB/C with all crap removed will boot faster than a stock one, which (in turn) will boot faster than PRO or Home.

    But a LTSB/C x86 will boot faster than its x64 conterpart. Just compare x86 oranges with x64 oranges.

    I'll just add that I have an "old" gaming rig, i7-4790K, 16GB RAM, and a pre-NVME m.2 PCIe x2 module (a Plextor of all things). When I push the power button, I get the Windows login in about five seconds, and most of that is POST. I am 100% genuinely impressed by how fast it is. I haven't done anything to make it behave that way, it has done it since I did the install, all stock.

    True, but he did ask for a "tweak" and "what to disable". Usually the bottleneck are the startup programs.
    I agree too that SSD is the way to go (Edit: I think @MassZERO might know this already) and sufficient RAM and a fast CPU.
    Sometimes though I'm a little hesitant to suggest upgrading hardware because not all of us can afford to right away. :(

    But to answer @MassZERO You will not get "lightning fast" boot up on an HDD. There is only so much you can do to speed up booting.

    Edit: Maybe this should have been my first response :thinking:

    xbootmgr -trace boot -prepSystem -verboseReadyBoot
    This is from Performance Toolkit, thats always work for mechanical disks.

    My latest laptop came with a second drive which was mechanical, first thing I did was toss it and put an SSD in there.

    In any case I have my complaints about Windows 10, but boot up and install speeds are not one them. Unattended installs take about three minutes and boot up is a few seconds, and that's with fast start disabled. It's by far the fastest of any Windows version I've used to date.

    If you still have complaints after going to an SSD you can audit start-up programs and services to knock times down a bit. There should be no need to use a modified iso to address those issues.

    Business editions allow you to disable the lock screen, maybe Pro as well. Check gpedit.msc under Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Control Panel -> Personalization. You can automate login by running netplwiz and unchecking the option to require user ID and password. Those things can speed start up a bit.
