    Can you reduce the boot time of an N4100+?

    Hi guys,

    I have an N4100+ with four Seagate 750Gb AS SATA drives (with jumper removed) running Raid 5. Is there any way of reducing the boot time from initial power up? I read on another thread about increasing the amount of RAM in the device, how easy would it be to do that and would it have much of an impact on boot speed (or indeed, general performance)?

    Many thanks
    Jon

    How long is it taking? I have 4 500GB SATA300 Seagate drives (RAID 5) and it boots in about 8 seconds?

    I understand the need to run tests during bootup but that doesn't explain why my NAS takes ten times longer than NotMuffy's....
