OK - and how long does it take if not loaded into memory?
Does the time to Desktop vary depending on what system you load it on (e.g. system with network, system with audio).
What are the two files in your download?
Most of the time seems to be taken up by a audio application and looking for a network???

Load in memory about 2 min and then about 1 min to reach the desktop.
When loading the same vhd from an usb key : loading into memory is about 1 min and 4 sec to reach the desktop.
The two files are the procmon traces captured by procmon duribg a bott sequence they can read with procmon.exe from sysinternals
The audio app and network search seems to be after the login.
The long time to reach the desktop seems happen before the login Go to the full post

Booting a Windows .VHD:
when the progress ring appear on the screen, it takes a bit more than one minute to reach the "desktop":
It's to long, how to speed up this part?
Please find below the data captured with procmon during the boot:
Thanks for helping!

Can you post a listing of the log results so people don't have to load procmon?

You maybe would get a response then.

I believe you identified only a few processes were actually taking up the majority of the delay?

P.S. I cannot load this in current ProcMon v3 - it is incompatible! Latest version is OK

Also, is this a standard setup - i.e. bootmgr - BCD - winloader.exe - VHD all  from a standard Pc and standard hard disk - or some other setup?

Grub4dos map the vhd in memory and then boot it via bootmgr.
