    FYI: This is a linux forum, not windows.
    For linux, one would probably use Bootchart.

    First : this is a linux forum
    Second : MS is SO afraid one could hack their milk cow they won't let you install anything during boot time...
    An Idea : if you want to developp in C language, have a look at Microchip controllers. Developp an circuit plugged into you power led and HD led, let a timer start when power led is on, let another timer start when HDD led is on, and stop both timers when the HDD led is off for 5 full second. You'll have BIOS init time + windows init time +5 on first timer, and real Windows boot time + 5 on second timer. This gadget will also work for Linux if you dare...
