I've just made a Live USB stick with Ubuntu 11.10 USB creator. I tried it on 2 laptops and the boot time is very long, more than 5 minutes. Is it normal?
If it is, what is the interest of having a portable OS if it take ages to boot?
With a 2GB memory stick, I reduced the persistent memory from 4 to 1GB and the boot time was faster, less than 2 minutes. I tried with an 8GB USB stick again with a persistent memory of 1GB, and the boot time is 4 minutes.
It seems that the boot time is linked with the USB memory stick and persistent memory size.
Is that true? Will the boot time be faster with a "class 8" USB memory stick?
