Windows 2000 Fast boot

By testbear2001 ·
Does Windows 2000 Professional have a fast boot capability like Windows Xp Prof? I am looking to load the OS without looking at any device drivers like Windows Xp Prof does. Does anyone have any step by step instructions for this.

Thank you

Yes, WinXP can be very fast to boot (apart from my machine as it takes longer to get to the grub menu than to boot the OS )
2k on the other hand, doesn't support boot optimization. It wasn't designed to be fast to boot. XP was.
