Dipping My Toe Into the Xbootmgr Water
I spent this past week in Windows Desktop Risk Assessment Program (WDRAP) training which was actually pretty fantastic. (If you are a Premier customer, talk to your technical account manager about getting one scheduled.) One of the areas I'm starting to pick up on is tools, specifically Xperf and Xbootmgr. Included in the
Windows Performance Toolkit (WPT), both are fantastic and I need to spend far greater time with them. One of the things we do in my organization is analyze a boot trace and look for improvements. I'm horrible at this today, but I'm getting better all the time. Smash cut to my own laptop that, at times, seems to be taking forever on boot up. Time to investigate.
