Vista boot time on a 2.20GHz Macbook

Just installed Vista using bootcamp on a 2.20GHz Santa Rosa Macbook, with 1GB RAM.

Bootup time from end of bios post (best guess anyway, Apple has a blank coloured background for post!!) was a total of 51 seconds, including logging in, and successfully clicking the start button.

This was on a clean install of Windows Vista Ultimate, including the Apple Bootcamp drivers, and no other changes.

No surprise there, according to PC World the fastest Windows Vista laptop they tested in 2007 was a Mac book pro.

I am very happy with Windows Vista Ultimate boot time on a Mac mini I use here as Media Center. I also have a 1 GB USB memory key for ReadyBoost. You should notice that boot times will change over time as you use the PC more and more because of SuperFetch...
