Considering msft don't do full options hardware detection until
after GUI shell is up, next speed up could simply be start from
hibernate? They already do a hardware signature, and if hardware
changed you may need a new license anyway :-) Pay per cold boot?

Noisy startup? 2.6 has good solution in default kernel build,
display milestones during startup or super quiet loader option
passed from boot? "dmesg -qq" thru "dmesg -vv" stir anyone?
