My first PC, a 286. Still remember all the sounds it did (from checking the memory, the CPU, the GPU, the drives and the extension cards) and the sequence they played. Wish I had it recorded at the time, because it was very iconic.

Another blast from the past: My most hated boot sequence is from our old 56k modem. God, were those things annoyingly noisy.



Atari 2600.

There was none. Flick the switch > game. Done.



I always loved the startup sequence of the original Xbox with the reactor firing up, it was so badass



Gamecube>GBA>Switch>DS>Everything else

PS2 instantly comes to mind. It's the startup sound that's so iconic, it wins on that alone.



I think I'll go with PS2, although Gamecube seems pretty cool too.



The PS2 Disc Read Error.

The PS1, probably because it was my first. I thought it was a cool little touch back whenever I decided to boot up FFVII. The Xbox and Dreamcast ones were pretty cool, too.

I'm also partial to the Windows 95 & 98 startup sounds. I know it's not a console, but I still really liked those mellow tunes.



This one because it reminds me of nights in my room, playing F-Zero or Oracle of Ages with glorious SNES+ graphics:
