Is there anything i can do? Supposedly windows seven should boot up faster than vista, but it takes windows vista 40 seconds, but it takes windows seven 1min 20 seconds.

No, it runs natively.

In VMWare when I have assigned much memory (maximum of 3500MB for 32-bit) it would run slow.
And if have assigned 1000MB is was running much faster.

Maybe Windows 7 couldn't handle too much memory? Remember, Windows 7 is in Milestone 3 (Pre-Beta)

I don't think that's the problem. Mine boots up in less then a minute (didnt measure the time)...

and i got a similar Config... (C2Q6600; 4GB;...)

Are you using the x86 or the x86-64 build?

Mabye you've got your system clogged up with crap...
Do you have any programs starting with Windows?
Do you regularly run Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter?
Have you disabled any unesscessary services?
While it may not be the time you were getting with Vista, your boot time could be worse...

I'm in the same dilemma as codenamepenryn.
It has to be compared on the same equipment as you have previously run Vista, otherwise it is no contest.
I,ve also read remarkable reports concerning the performance of 7.
I have Vista and 7 running side by side on two identical machines. Both Os's have been configured , in the early stage, exactly the same way.
Sata drives, 3.2 pentiums and 32 speedf dvd drives (The latter are important if you are discussing the install time. My own results msytify me, when I read of users installing in 15 minutes etc.
These were my own figures, run twice.
Install time Vista 32 minutes. 7 27 minutes. That is up to the usable desktop stage, when the mouse cursor has settled down.
Start up from cold. Vista 85 seconds 7 about 70 seconds (Msconfig almost totally stripped of startup progs)
Opening Corel PSP (A really slow starter!)
Vista 10 secs. 7 8 seconds
Full Adobe. - A really slow program!
Vista 4 secs. 7 4secs.
MS word 2007.
Vista 10 secs. 7 10 secs.
Shutdown.
Vista 10 secs. 7 also 10 secs.

Obviously the majority, assuming they are not wild or vague claims, are getting better results than me. But I'll hang around optimistically for a Beta version.
One thing had improved, oddly. The install times for programs were almost halved.

You can try to disable the SuperFetch service so it doesnt have to prefetch all your program wile booting.
