    I quote from Microsofts site in regards to booting with all cores etc...

    "/numproc=number
    This switch sets the number of processors that Windows will run at startup. With this switch, you can force a multiprocessor system to use only the quantity of processors (number) that you specify. This switch can help you troubleshoot performance problems and defective CPUs. "

    Available switch options for the Windows XP and the Windows Server 2003 Boot.ini files

    i dont know whether win7 will use multithreading with 8 cores at start up but its possible,i remember when i first looked after installing win7 it was set to 4 cores at default so i changed it to 8

    In default mode its not ticked, and when its not ticked (the boxes) they are automatically set to max cores regardless of what the greyed out number reads

    yeah thats right i had it the other way around,same for memory there both greyed out unless you tick the boxes then it will let you choose the amount of cores and amount of ram you want to use to boot with

    Its a pity though as even i thought it was supposed to help, though i wonder if LSD will see my question about flashing the BIOS to the HDD?

    Anyway this is useful for msconfig Available switch options for the Windows XP and the Windows Server 2003 Boot.ini files

    idk,probably because of overclocking and having the need of a dual bios,

Other times , I boot and get the BIOS screen and immediately after get the "Updating DMI pool (or data)" statement. In anycase, the BIOS or The "Updating DMI pool (or data)" statement is still at about 25 seconds from the press of the button and Windows is complete/usable at around 51 seconds...so it has improved from my very original post but still not as good as my old Q6600 quad core on the ABIT IP35 Pro. So it's possible some of the tweaks suggested did help some (i.e., BIOS from F5 to F6b, DVDdrive to SATA II_5). I don't think OCing slowed down the boot process because I had this slow to BIOS screen problem long before I OCed.

    What do other people get for times to the BIOS screen on Gigabyte boards?
    It is my first Gigabyte board. They were all ASUS or ABIT previously. So I was accustomed to the BIOS screen popping up within seconds of hitting the switch.

    Thanks
    I'll have to time a few boots to be sure of how long is normal. Sorry, that's why I wanted a video so I could see how long it is taking to show you each screen. I am not really sure of times myself, but I do know what screens to expect after certain amounts of time. So that is why I wanted to see a video if possible, no problem if you can't now though. I'll do a few timed tests tonight and let you know what I find out.

    Gigabyte are slow to boot, this is normal. All manufacturer boards boot different, some faster than others and some slower, so since you are coming from another brand I suspect your GIGABYTE board is fine and you are just not used to the booting process on these boards is all.

    I'll time out a few boots tonight and let you know. I will also make a video of a bootup on my end and post for you, so you can see my bootup times between screens so you can compare to what you are seeing.

    Id make a video of it if i thought it was going to help the BIOS guys make future BIOS's faster to boot but i get the feeling its the board.

    If your reading this LSD... You know how some notebooks post their BIOSs from the hard drive and have very fast boot times, is this maybe not an option? Or is the problem you cant clear it like you can with the cmos? I dunno... do wish it posted faster though. My mate has an Asus notebook that has the above feature, when its switched on the BIOS is not even seen it goes so quick (admidally it doesnt boot windows as quick, just the BIOS and ONLY when booting the BIOS from the hard drive)
    I am not sure what you mean, sorry! I don't use notebooks often and I have not heard ever of any that boot from a on-disk BIOS. What I can say that may make you think that is that ALL boards boot differently, some much faster than others, so it may just seem that way to you? Booting from a BIOS on a hard drive would be much slower than a onchip motherboard BIOS, so I can only guess this is not what is going on in the notebook you are thinking of as it would most likely boot slower if the BIOS was only on the hard drive.

    lol @ I see all

    The BIOS thing on my mates notebook is random. In his BIOS settings he has a Boot Booster which according to his manual POST's the BIOS from the HDD rather than the BIOS chip, when enabled its def alot quicker.
