How fast does your computer boot?

It’s time for you guys to show off just how fast your system boots with your Crucial SSD installed! Reply and let us know the boot time, or if you have a “Before and After SSD” image or video comparison like ours below then even better!

Re: How fast does your computer boot?

I don't have a video depecting how fast my work PC is with an SSD, but it's so much faster than with a hard drive. I use to go get a cup of coffee, use the restroom, and come back and my hard drive would still be loading my system. Now, it's booting in about 4 seconds!

Re: How fast does your computer boot?

There's a program called Bootracer you can use to record this for you.  Notes time to boot and time until your desktop is ready to use (after startup programs etc)

Re: How fast does your computer boot?

Based on my date registered on here - it's been 9 years since I last booted from a hard drive so no before and after times here!

 

But here's some boot racer timings from my M550 0.5TB

 

 Normal boot:Standard boot

 

Clean boot:

Boot Clean

 

These times probably don't flatter this machine much.  It's not optimised for startup times since I tend to use suspend to RAM rather than shut down.  And whilst I'm careful about not running startup apps and services I don't need - there's no getting away from the fact that there's a fair number I do need.  This machine is multi purpose and has to run SQL Server as well as Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Re: How fast does your computer boot?

10-12 seconds I guess. It's ok for me.
