HP Laptop: Intel Core2 Duo (2.00GHz, 2Mb cache, 2 cores) 3Gb RAM GeForce 9200 256Mb Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 I have several everyday programs on this machine but i disable all programs from startup (Using CCleaner) and i set the number of services running to Minimal (Using Registry Mechanic). I have Avast home edition running at startup as well as 5 sidebar gadgets.
eSystem Desktop: Intel Celeron D (3.46GHz, 512Kb cache, 1 core) 1Gb RAM Radeon HD3450 512Mb Windows XP Home Edition SP3 I use the same programs that are stated as above and i disable all programs from startup. I set the number of Services running to Recommended (Using Registry Mechanic) and i have no anti virus installed on this machine, as well as no widgets.
My question is, how come my low-end Desktop system loads XP in 20 seconds, whereas my relativly new Laptop loads Vista in about 2 minutes?
