?fastest restart for a kiosk machine?
Posted on 2011-03-03
We have a "kiosk" machine in our lobby that we let folks use.
It has a "white list" of internet sites controlled by Microsoft STEADY STATE and the active directory.
After 2 minutes of inactivity, the machine restarts and STEADY STATE returns it to the "way it was before."
All this is "fine" except, the restart currently takes about 10 minutes on a 2.8 mhz HP single engine.
I am in the process of upgrading to a twin engine pentium with sata drive.
I fear it will still be "slow."
I've considered some sort of solid state drive as a next step,
I wondered if anyone can suggest a better way to remove any persistent data that may have been left by the prior user.
