Hello samadeus, there are a number of things you can do to speed up boot times,
1) go to 'Start> Run',  type in 'msconfig' click OK, check ' selective start-up ' then select the 'start-up' tab, uncheck all apps that you don't need  or want to automatically start at boot, click "apply' then 'close' and reboot. You should see an improvement in boot times. You can also download a program called 'Bootvis.exe' and is available for free:

I hope this helps you out...Booda2us

Hi Visual3DMaya

I can't find this options, is there any place on the net that specifies the menus etc?
Your motherboard site should specify or should allow you to download its manual.
There are also reviews for every mobo apart, try zdnet.
Better just press del after reset and enter BIOS menus, there you'll find some of those options if not all of them.
