I want to know the duration of boot time in win XP. I tried by looking into the Event Viewer of XP but unable to find any corresponding event ID.

If you're just looking for the duration, and nothing else, a simple stopwatch might do the trick. – dangowans Sep 26 '12 at 23:36

As far as I know, boot-up times are not logged anywhere. There is a application I know that does time it for you. Its called Soluto. Soluto will measure your boot-up time, as well as give you suggestions on how to reduce the time.

I use Soluto and it works. – Xavierjazz Sep 21 '12 at 19:46

Microsoft's BootVis used to work fine as well on XP (check the article for the download link, since MS no longer offers this utility).

Sysinternals' Process Monitor can do boot-up logging.
