For those who didn’t yet know, the Dude is a fan of old school rap. So one of these days, not much to do, I was chillin with my old school crew and I ran into a slow boot scenario…
(Yes, I am in fact listening to Mona Lisa by Slick Rick the Ruler!)
So I’m not picky, let me share this trace out…
Not a bad looking trace, what's the problem the reader may ask him/herself? Lets scroll down a bit…
Whoop whoop, that’s the sound of the police! Why is our storage basically at 100% util through the whole trace? The disk light on this laptop never turns off through the boot up. And look at this:
So don’t say this, don’t say that, change your lyrics….Post Boot never finishes on this trace, what gives?
Doh, Chill Rob G may have the Power, but ReadyBoot doesn’t….
Lets get a summary table on this.
Look at that chart. We miss 602 MB of ReadyBoot data and hit 415 MB of it. Who here things a less than 50% Readyboot cache hit rate is acceptable? No one? Good, you’re right!
This is a classic case for requiring the ReadyBoot hotfix that says if 99 restore points are created you might run into problems. It fixes this, as Mark pointed out a while back…http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2555428.
