boot/reboot times on HP Pavilion G6 w/freshly installed PNY SSD
« on: October 04, 2016, 04:50:20 pm »
Thought I'd start a new thread since I've marked the last one [SOLVED via SSD] as i continue to play with the boot reboot speeds on the SSD... which are so far averaging 20-24 seconds...

To help us help you, ALL new requests for technical support should include basic system information.

If you haven't already done so, please open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run the following command:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
then copy what was returned in the terminal and post it back here.

This was an automated response but please don't ignore it, providing this information now is highly likely to save time for both you and any prospective respondents and aid in the diagnosis of your problem  .. Thanks in advance :)

Don't be, VinDSL has been trimming back on services and optimising his system a lot.

My AMD A10 quad core laptop with 8GB RAM and a 250GB SSD currently boots around 20 - 25 seconds, so that's quite normal .. sure I could  tweak it some more, but is it really that important ?
(it was a bit faster before I set up network share automounts)

[EDIT]

I'd also like to add, I think you were right in your other topic .. I'm pretty sure AMD's don't boot as fast as Intel in Linux as some less powerful and lower specced all round Intel notebooks I have boot faster than my A10 .. possibly how the AHCI driver is implemented, but I doubt it as I suspect they both use the same driver in Linux.
I KNOW this to be true in Windows .. testing SSD speeds with the AMD AHCI driver and the Microsoft one showed the Windows one to be markedly faster even on AMD hardware.

This doesn't mean the notebooks I mentioned feel any faster than the A10 .. in fact once booted they're considerably slower, so maybe it's  more to do with Intel hardware/chipset drivers simply being better optimised for parallel loading than the AMD ones in Linux .. who knows.

Yeah, back in AMD's early hey days they were the go to processors for faster boot times, if my memory serves. Guess that's fallen by the wayside for them. None of the tweaks & trimming have shaved any further time down, so some things may be reverted with no loss in boot/reboot times. I've been kicking myself all along with a grin, "Am I really complaining about sub 30 second boot times?"
