    Is that hard-wired or WiFi, Ed?

    Isn't that the value of Pi?

    Let me restate the question: Based on consumer builds, not just lab testing, what is the fasted Windows 8 Pro boot time?

    Thank you!

    I may try my first build this summer when Haswell comes out. I'm just trying to get an idea of what to buy.

    Mmmm, pi. Pi is invaluable, especially a freshly baked apple cinnamon one with flaky crust, still warm from the oven! :-)

    Just jokin' wit chu, HippsieGypsie's link should help...

    You're quite welcome. Here's another from one of our technical members on his overclocked builds: Documenting my new PC (re)build... From Q6600 to i7-3770k

    I would imagine there are more. Please use the advanced search: Advanced Search - Windows 8 Forums

    I hope you take our funning in good humor. Some of us like to have fun here.

    BTW, I dual boot with 7. 8 boots hellova lot faster than 7 on this old Acer. About 14 seconds, depending. 7 is about 40 seconds.

    I registered in these forums, I dunno when. I suppose I could look. LOL. Yeah, I'm definitely not use to the humor around here. It's all good. I can take it.

    Interesting, dual Windows 7/8 boot. I might look into that. Would be nice if there was a way I didn't have to install my programs twice. I hear things about Windows 8 Pro and not being able to downgrade without a few tricks (saw it on YouTube so I'm well versed). I don't see the point of going back to Windows 7, though if I'm going to be on Windows 8 when I do my new build. I plan on buying that Start8 app to make Windows 8 look more like Windows 7.

    on the humor.

    Just to let you know, your Join Date was Jun 2011. It's list under each member's name at every post. I noticed you had a 4 post count upon your OP. That's why I welcomed you back.

    I dual boot for a few reasons. I run a construction business on my 7 side. I started with Release Preview last early June, then Enterprise Evaluation, and then my final OEM 8 Pro Edition just after the Holidays. I'm still using Office 2000 Pro on my 7 side. It won't load into 8. I need to upgrade that and rightfully so, but I'm retiring soon and haven't come to a complete decision on that yet. I don't trust new OSs until they get the bugs worked out, although 8 has been good that way and was/is quite stable and quick. It also gave me time to learn 8 while using 7 for business. There is a slight more learning curve to 8 because of the new UI, Modern/Metro Store apps, touch-centricity (it works well with mouse & keyboard), and overall changes.

    Good luck to you whatever you decide.
