It takes 1 minute and 5 seconds for my XP PRO SP2 to boot to the Welcome Screen.
It takes 45 seconds for the startup, security, and motherboard support utilities to fully boot into Windows and the boot up drive to stop access.
Is this a usual boot up time for a desktop computer running with an Intel Penitium D and an Intel 945P chip set? The system has 256 MB DDR and 2 GB of RAM running at 3.01 GHZ. I have Windows update patch system turned off
