[dba-Tech] SSHD boot disk

Last night a friend of mine told me about a friend of his, who has put
together a computer for use by him and his wife. It's got a pair of 2TB
hard disks and more interestingly, a solid state hard disk that he has set
up to be the boot disk. From a switched-off machine to the whole OS loaded
and ready to go, elapsed time 10 seconds! Not quite "instant-on" but pretty
darned close.

I don't have any SSHDs but I do have a couple of 16GB memory sticks. Has
anyone set up one of those to be the boot disk? And if so, what was the
bootup time?
