Default Re: Boot Time

There should be warnings in the Event Logs for things windows deems are taking too long to load. Not sure about the RC though tbh.
But really you guys should just download the rtm iso and do a hash check on it. You can run windows without a key and just add it when you get it (up to 120 days with no key/activation)

I'm fine with the RC so I don't mind waiting for the final version. In fact I am in no hurry to wipe the drive and redo it again.
Oh and yes the event log in the RC shows warnings on what is making boot time slower.

What is the point in rushing? Sooner or later I'll have the final version.
