      Boot and logon times, always current. Practical tips and new tools for troubleshooting are welcome.

      THIS IS HUGE. We brought in Microsoft to perform a WDRAP and was very happy with the information provided. Would love a deeper dive into the technologies to troubleshoot long boot times, from drivers, services, GPO's, scripts embedded in GPO's, and recommended settings for baseline images.

      Would be nice to have this repeated at another time, as it conflicts with the very popular Unexplained session with Mark.  Tough choice.

      @rbmiller12: Hardcore Debugging at 10:15am Thurs will be a similar talk - it uses both the Debugger and WPT to diagnose crashes and hangs.

      Hey JS2010, XPerfv5 works on Windows 8, Windows Server 2012 as well as Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. It's part of the Windows ADK which you can simply install on one of those operating systems.
