Windows 8 boots in 2-3 secs after post....

I just installed my old Intel SSD into my old rig that has Windows 8 pro installed. I'm surprised that it boots that fast and it's running on SATA II speed. I wonder why Windows 7 can't boot that fast?

My Windows 7 boots in under 20 secs on my new Samsung 840 Pro. Why? Well my HD DVD/BD-R drive needs to boot up first before letting windows finish booting. Too bad there is no fix for that (check the bios) other than replacing the disc drive.

Windows 8 boots up much faster even without an SSD. My computer boots in less than 10 seconds on a HDD after post.

In 3 seconds? I think you need to post a video of that, it takes my PC (Asus z87 pro based) at least 5 seconds to get past the bios.

I can tell you I also boot W8 on my ssd in 3 seconds. It's insane but true.

Windows 8 uses a hibernation system when you shut it down, that is why it boots so quickly, if you enable hibernation in windows 7 it will also boot faster.

Try restarting in windows 8, when you restart instead of shutting down it really loads everything when you boot, it will take longer, like windows 7 does.

if you enable hibernation in windows 7

Hibernation is enabled by default in Windows 7. It boots the same whether it is enabled or disabled.

You didn't quite understand. Win8 doesn't really shut down when you tell it to shut down. It goes into a deep hibernation instead. Restarting fully shuts the system down and reboots.

If you put a Win7 machine into hibernation, it's basically the same as shutting down a Win8 machine.
