Introducion

FastWin v1.O5 purpose is to startup Windows quicker than using
the old Win.com which can be very slow on everyone system. This
new version will replace that slow Win.com and give you some
quicker access time to Windows. You'll see a 8%-1O% faster loading
time than FastWin v1.O 6% time. What all of this means that in
version 1 on and average 386 system you are were looking at a 12
to 13 seconds startup of Windows. Now using the newest version 1.O5
on the same average 386 system running the enhanced mode you are now
seeing a 9 to 1O seconds startup of Windows.

FastWin is now more compatitble for all VGA modes and color
modes to!

Note: The numbers colors you can have depends on how much ram
you have on your VIDEO CARD or built-in Video in the
motherboard.

VGA Color RAM
range from 256k

Installation

FASTWIN1.EXE - Best Speed Use to replace Win.com
FASTWIN2.EXE - Good Speed Use to replace Win.com
FASTW1O5.TXT - You reading this now!


Installation is easy after you ran your unziping program on
FASTW1O5.ZIP

This version you have two different FastWins, 1 & 2:

FASTWIN1.EXE: Is the most fastest of the two! Even on a
very slow 386 you can bootup Windows in less than 1O seconds
depending on your system setup. 486's will fly even faster
coming in at 7 to 8 seconds faster or better! Again all of this
depends on your system.

* Also Known as The FastWin "F" Concept >>>>

"F" stands for Fastest Method!
Compatible w/ all VGA modes & Video Cards

FASTWIN2.EXE Is for those of you who use special video cards to
speed up Windows graphics etc. Use this version also if for
some strange reason you just can't get FastWin1.exe to bootup
Windows in any mode. Speed will still be good, in less than 13
seconds and again this depends on your system.

* Also Known as The FastWin "C" Concept >>>>

"C" stands for More Compatible Version w/ all VGA modes & Video Cards

Note: See the trouble shooting topic in this manual for some more tips.

Note: These files use 1.8k of conventional under Windows.
Compared to the FastWin v1.O which uses 1.7k.

Before installing any of the above, be sure to copy your Win.com file
located in your C:\WINDOWS to another part of your HD or to your
floppy disk.

Copy A:\FASTWIN1.EXE C:\WINDOWS\FASTWIN.EXE
OR
Copy B:\FASTWIN2.EXE C:\WINDOWS\FASTWIN.EXE

Make sure you name either of the two FastWins FASTWIN.EXE. Use
only one at a time.

Now make sure your outside or completely exited out of Windows.
Don't use any Dos box Window on the following:

At the Dos prompt:

Type FASTWIN to start Windows in the Standard mode!

Type FASTWIN /3 to start Windows in the 386 Enchanced mode!

Or add any of the above to your Autoexec.bat file instead!

Smartdrv Cache uses after you copy one of these FastWins to
your \Windows directory use this command SMARTDRV /C to clear
out any of the old Win.com information from your Cache Ram.

Those who use 32, 64, 128, & 256k internal Ram Cache should do
a complete reboot of your computer.
