Great success is achieved by Microsoft by reducing the boot timing for its latest operating system, Windows 7, to only 10 seconds. This is amazing, considering the fact that the BIOS has to turn on everything in the system from the CPU to hard drive, before the OS begins to load.

Windows 7 has achieved this feat of extremely low boot time by using a healthy hardware configuration. Moreover, most of the hardware manufacturing firms are paying more attention on cutting the boot time.

For example the Lenovo Group Ltd is making some remarkable changes like:

* Helps to prevent the BIOS phase from the loading of driver.
* Fixing the drivers of on-board hardware components that were cumulatively causing massive delays.
* Avoiding the loading of unessential application being included in the Startup programs. Using msconfig to disable stuff that runs on startup

Dell, Toshiba and HP are also on course to follow the same trend.

Windows 7 version works extremely good even in the case of multiple operating systems. If your hard disk has ample space then you can create a partition and dual boot your system. When you will turn on your computer, it will ask you about the option of OS.

* Defragment your Windows page file and registry as well.
* Check your hard drive from the temporary files frequently.
* Load up Windows faster by using Startup Delayer a free program that will speed up the boot time of Windows by delaying the startup of programs.
