How do I make win2k start faster?

By angelo ·
I originally upgraded from winnt 4.0 to win2k pro. I noticed that the OS took about 2 min. to startup. I tried my best to decrease the boot time but no success. Finally, I decided to do a new install (reformat the hdd, etc.). Well, what an improvement! The startup time is down to 1 minute. But I still want to shave more time off that process. Currently only these services start automatically:
workstation
rpc
dhcp
plug play
system event notification
protected storage
eventlog
com+ event system
NAV autoprotect

Here are my system specs:
(p3 500 256 mb ram)
all drives are running NTFS.


thanks,
angelo

Is win2k pro a large program? If so the only thing i can think of is to buy more memory(ram) if possible or just a faster processor.

You have saved extra time due to the fact that now files (system files) are not defragmentd and contiguous!!!
I think that the NAV service is slowing down your system. With a boot FAT (instead of NTFS) partition you will improve boot time.
Also check about HW profiles executing al boot time.
