Hi, my daddy’s got a lappy with x64 windows 2008 std onboard, its parameters are quite good so comes a c2d 2,0×2 processor and a 4GB of ram… Windows Server goes very good except the startup time which is about 2-3 minutes or so. I’ve previously had a 2008 winserver lappy which had the same problem although it booted a little faster (and had well worse parameters). I love Windows Server and I’m about to get a new lappy so I am interested if something can be done with this? I love Win2008 othervise and really don’t want to stick with any Vista or XP, or Linux.
Not really sure about this, however i’ve seen this same problem happening in vista, someone told me it might be a driver issue. My current PC takes 35secs to load desktop on server 2008 x64 and it’s a c2d e2160 (2.3GHz), 2GB ram so it’s nothing impressive really. I’d look for some software/driver that might be taking long to start maybe wifi?
