    15 seconds cold start, 10 seconds from hibernate. I set it to hibernate when the lid is closed. I never fully shut it down.

    Coldboot From UPS-all-on to Windows desktop -- "Battleship" post, boot & startup -- ranges from 3 - 5 minutes average.
    [bcdedit set to allow 420 seconds max before F8/regular menu kicks in; that allows all ext devices to come up to full green before W7 boots]
    Warmboot, restart -- "Battleship" boot & startup -- ranges from 2-3 minutes.
    I assume the original question means seeing desktop, and actually having a desktop ready to go.
    When taskbar notifications area shows all regular 27-30 monitoring, security, utility-is-ready icons, then I know desktop is truly ready.
    In another place, I was tongue-in-cheek calling the above: Blue Water Navy Aircraft Carrier [or Battleship] Task Force post/boot/startup. While the Widows & Linux Navy Seals out there must have fast accurate well-armed speed boats,
    planes out at sea have to land somewhere

    The best reference for boot time is Event 100 in the event viewer. That's the one which counts. This is how it look for my Windows 8.1 - note though that this is booting in a virtual VMware partition.

    You have to drill down this chain:

    Eventvwr
    Applications and Service Logs
    Microsoft
    Windows
    Diagnostics - performance
    Operational
    Event ID 100

    Then double click on an Event 100.
