BIOS Tip: Tweaking BIOS to Improve Boot Speed
Tweaking your BIOS settings can be a good way to get your system to boot
faster. Just a simple change of some of the key settings can make dramatic
differences in how fast your system boots up.
Enable the "Quick Boot" Feature: Many newer PCs have a
special BIOS setting, usually called "Quick Boot" or "Quick Power On Self
Test" that can be enabled to make the boot take less time. Try enabling this
setting; this will cause the BIOS to skip some of the normal test routines
that it performs at boot time, speeding up the boot process.
Remove the Boot Delay Setting: Some PCs have a BIOS setting
that you can use to intentionally delay the boot-up of the PC by several
seconds. This setting is often called "Boot Delay" or "Power-on Delay". This
can be useful when the BIOS is booting too quickly, causing hard disk drives
to be booted before they are ready. However, it also slows the boot process
down, so make sure that it is only enabled if it is needed.
Disable Floppy Drive Seek: Also called Boot Up Floppy Seek.
Most PCs have a BIOS setting to disable floppy drive seeking, which is the
short access the BIOS makes to the floppy disk just before it boots the
system. This seek (unless disabled) is performed regardless of whether the
system is being booted from the hard disk or floppy disk. Disabling the seek
speeds up the boot process by a couple of seconds. This doesn't really have
any negative impact on the system, although if you are having problems with
your floppy drive you will probably want to re-enable the seek as this makes
troubleshooting some types of problems easier.
