Boot Winxp Fast NOTE: This involves editing the boot settings, its advised to create a system restore point in the unlikely event of anything going wrong. Follow the following steps and winxp will boot alot faster. 1. Open notepad.exe, type "del c:\windows\prefetch\ntosboot-*.*/q" (without the quotes) & save as "ntosboot.bat" in c:\ 2. From the Start menu, select "Run" and type "gpedit.msc". 3. Double click "Windows Settings" under " Computer Configuration" and double click again on "Shutdown" in the right window. 4. In the new window, click "add", "Browse", locate your "ntosboot.bat" file & click "Open". 5. Click "OK", "Apply" & "OK" once again to exit. 6. From the Start menu, select "Run..." & type "devmgmt.msc". 7. Double click on "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" 8. Right click on "Primary IDE Channel" and select "Properties". 9. Select the "Advanced Settings" tab then on the device or 1 that doesn't have 'device type' greyed out select 'none' instead of 'autodetect' & click "OK". 10.
