BootEasy from QDI
The latest innovation from QDI 'BootEasy' should enable you to boot within 3-4 seconds and not in around 40 seconds as before. This technology was presented at the Comdex in Las Vegas.
The often annoying wait until the PC has booted is supposed to as a result, it is no longer a pain for the user. Normally the BIOS checks the system core when booting and initializes the peripherals. This is not the case with the new BootEasy technology. The system check is only carried out when the system is started for the first time and from then on all information is stored in the Flash ROM. The next time the system boots, the BIOS starts in 'High Way' mode, so that the information is not requested again. The user can switch off the BootEasy function himself at any time. This is also necessary if the user changes something in his PC configuration. If, for example, he installs new RAM, changes the graphics card or CPU, the BootEasy function must be switched off when the PC is started with the new components for the first time, but can of course be switched on again the next time it is started. If booting fails 3 times, the BootEasy function is automatically deactivated and the computer starts in normal mode. This technology will be used in some new QDI products.
