I posted this: Extremely slow boot, with kernel error
But I've now added
video=SVIDEO-1:d to the kernel boot parameters in
/etc/default/grub and my boot time reduced from 4 minutes 27 seconds to 57 seconds.
I will leave the steps I here for people new to GNU/Linux as I am.
editor's note: please see comments for minor critique of this method - use of
sudo gedit is not recommended
(Enter your password)
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
Now just add the
video=SVIDEO-1:d to this line
It should look like this:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash video=SVIDEO-1:d"
Save the file and exit.
Again in the terminal, run this command to make the change effective:
sudo update-grub sudo reboot
Now I have 57-second boot. Could it be faster?
