INSTANT bootable Laptop - Ubuntu, Chromium or Android?
Posted on 2010-11-13
I own a Lenovo R61 Laptop with WinXP SP3 on it (dual boot with Vista on second partition).
I want to make it instant bootable... may be by installing Ubuntu / Google Chromium / Android.
I prefer to install these OS on hard drive rather than having them on CD or USB.
I have seen Ubuntu 10.10 installed on hard disk boots in around a minute. Can this be turned down to around 10 seconds? I think it is possible with Google Chrome/ Android. I am not sure which OS will make my laptop instant bootable or near-instant (<1min). Many suggests to try OS that they have tried, but could not find a tutorial which compares these three variants of Linux. I would take your opinion at EE community.
I am thinking of Chromium / Android OS as most of my work is online. Please suggest me a way.
[I am conversant with technical language, so detailed response is fine]
OS: Please suggest
Boot time: < 60 seconds
Connectivity: Wifi (Must), (If possible - Internet via USB or Bluetooth based devices)
Hardware: Lenovo R61
Dual boot: Yes, with Windows XP
