    Hello, I have some slow boot, I don't know if that's normal or not as I didn't have this slow boot with W7 x64 RC1 7100

    The welcome screen will take like 8 seconds and then the desktop appears without shortcut icons, it takes more 2 seconds for them to appear on the desktop

    No it is the same tan RC for me... have you try to look the multiboot option? and dissable all exept Windows 7 RTM?

    when passing from beta to RC boot where slow because it was searching wich one to boot but as they where at the same place it was a waste of time.

    Well I'm on Win7 32bit, and I had a similar slow welcome screen problem, so not sure if this would apply to yours. I found when I changed my wall paper to a solid color, for some odd reason this would slow it down. When I switched back to the wallpaper, it went back to normal.

    Guaranteed to be loading start up items - you may need to check and see what services etc are auto starting...

    I can confirm that exact behaviour - it's a huge difference in loading (ready) time.
    I thought i was going nuts, because changing to a solid color is usually the first or second thing i do after a fresh OS-install.

    (W7 64 bit)

    I solved this problem by creating a solid colour jpg and using that as a wallpaper.

    I couldn't believe it but it works. Funny how quick it loads after using wallpaper instead of solid colors. I did what Nillbert did and it takes a second to load as opposed to the 30secs with just the solid color.
    Thanks Gurus! You helped me out again.

    got to: Start

    Type: MsConfig

    Go to Boot

    Advanced options...

    Tic: Number of processors.

    Put: however many cores you have 2 4

    Put max memory in.

    Go to timeout: Make it 3 seconds

    Press ok apply restart. way faster!
