Update:

Well, it would seem that it's not all that easy to get stuff up as soon as I'd like.

I've done some early testing, trying to mount a remote image using fileshares... the damn lanmanworkstation service doesn't start up until *really* late in the boot process. (in my autologin Vista, it's actually on the desktop before it's ready!)

I'm going to have to swtich to using the devio way--provided I can figure out why it bluescreens my vpc.

Even with the devio method, I'm going to have to wait until TCP/IP is started (which is the NDIS group)... which is still somewhat later than I had hoped...

Well, not *later*, just there is a lot of crap that's earlier than I would have thought necessary.

a snippet from the boot order:
CODE
...
Boot File System
Base
Pointer Port
Keyboard Port
Pointer Class
Keyboard Class
Video Init          // Odd that this is done that early!
Video               // Odd that this is done that early!
Video Save          // Odd that this is done that early!
File System
                    // obviously, needs to follow File System!
Streams Drivers
NDIS Wrapper
COM Infrastructure
Event Log
AudioGroup
ProfSvc_Group
UIGroup
MS_WindowsLocalValidation
PlugPlay
PNP_TDI
NDIS
                     // Earliest I could *possibly* do...
TDI
iSCSI
NetBIOSGroup
ShellSvcGroup
SchedulerGroup
SpoolerGroup
SmartCardGroup
NetworkProvider      // lanmanworkstation is here! *sigh*
MS_WindowsRemoteValidation
NetDDEGroup
Parallel arbitrator
Extended Base
PCI Configuration
MS Transactions


I'm actually quite surprised how late networkdir ing is started. I suppose that's normally not so much of a problem, if you don't normally need network access that early.

I may have to take a different tact with this... hmm.
