I've read the lot of topics on plymouth and nvidia drivers.
However my question is focused on why the difference between live cd and installation?
By "the perfectly looking boot" I mean:
- the boot animation starts at the appropriate time (immediately)
- the bootscreen animation resolution matches my screen
- the transition between bootscreen and login/desktop is smooth
- i can start using my desktop with no lagging due to loading that is still being performed
Once I install Ubuntu on my hard drive though, some or all of the 4 points above are not true.
I've been having this issues since I started using Ubuntu extensively which was around version 10.04.
