Thank you, AS
The SSD drive was formatted as ext4 '/'
The partitions are defined in size 25Gb for '/', 35Gb '/home, all partition sizes are approx.
The hardware is as follows:---
Asus M3N78-EMH HDMI Motherboard.
2GB ram, 1st drive Corsair SDD 60GB, 2nd. drive Hitachi 2TB.
AMD Phenom 8450 3 core.
The original install was abysmal, only booting in 48 secs.
A re-install worked well, booting in 20secs, '/home' still ext2.
A livecd was created and re-installed with '/home' set ext4.
Now the system is just a little faster than a sata2 drive.
Still booting in 48 secs.
There is one other thing I can try. Changing the splash screen.
At this time the splash screen is "SPEED" and resides in home.
I will change back to the PCLOS screen instead and see how that works.
Will report back after the trial.
Many thanks, AS, for your reply.
I changed back to the PCLOS splash screen with no change BUT....Why is there a delay of some 16 secs from the end of the 'boot' screen and the starts of the splash screen?
This is still on the SSD.
I will create another LiveCD , put the original sata2 drive back in the system and then put the SSD in the sata3 system.
I was wondering if Tex was still booting in 8 Secs and if so is his system sata3?
?why do I have a 16sec delay starting the splash screen. What can cause such a delay?
Perhaps a reinstall would cure it?
Many thanks AS for your input.
