Ways To Speed Up Windows XP - Speed Up Boot Times II

When your PC starts it usually looks for any bootable media in any floppy or cd-rom drives you have installed before it gets around to loading the Operating System from the HDD. This can waste valuable time. To fix this we need to make some changes to the Bios. Note: Once this change has been made, you won’t be able to boot from a floppy disc or a CD-rom. If for some strange reason you need to do this in the future, just go back into your bios, repeat the steps above and put your floppy or CD-rom back as the ‘First Device’

* To enter the bios you usually press ‘F2? or ‘delete’ when your PC starts
* Navigate to the ‘Boot’ menu
* Select ‘Boot Sequence’
* Then either move your Hard drive to the top position or set it as the ‘First Device’5. Press the ‘Escape’ key to leave the bios. Don’t forget to save your settings before exiting
