    8 seconds is pretty hard even with an SSD. My desktop mobo takes longer to POST than 8 seconds.

    I don't boot all that often, so 20-30 seconds is just fine by me.

    You will never ever get 8 second boot times with a hard drive, until you get a ssd, I wouldn`t even worry about your boot times, just cut down on the startup items as best you can, as suggested.

    Fast Boot is usually already on by default.
    I thought 8 seconds for a HDD was a little optimistic. I got mine down to 15 seconds now with my 5400rpm hard drive so I think that is good enough. Now I can clone the drive to the SSD and see how it goes from there.

    What about BIOS settings ? Do you have ther a fast boot ?
    Just checked the BIOS settings and fast boot is enabled but since I got boot time down to 15 seconds now, I'm happy with that until I install my SSD next week.

    You are absolutely right for the SSD but as for the fast boot i am not that sure, i am not sure if he has that option at all but checking won't hurt anyone

    I never understand people like this who worry about whether there system boots in 10 seconds or 60 seconds or whatever. What difference does it make? You only boot up once or possibly twice a day, it's not as if it's something you do very often.

    Sometimes you have to work against yourself by disabling startup items because you end up having to start them later on you need some other functionality. Let it all start up at once and you don't have to worry about it.

    When you are making constant adjustments to the os and testing and need to reboot several times, 60+ sec boot times are very annoying. I add many programs, delete them, test things etc, so for me at least, I really really like speedy boot times. That is why I bought it down to 15 seconds on the 5400 hardrive as I know it is going to be blazing fast now when I install the SSD.
