Hello everyone, after many a Distro Hopping I have settled on Manjaro XFCE as my main OS to replace Windows. The main dependancies of me choosing a Distro have been met.
So I decided to do a test, I have a fully loaded Manjaro install, a previous Windows 8.1 only install and now in linux a Virtual Machine install of Windows 7 Home Premium.
All installs are 64 bit
*Fresh install of Windows 8.1. - 27.60 seconds from post to desktop.
*Established install of Manjaro. - 14.19 seconds from post to desktop
*Semi established install of Windows 7 in Virtual Machine Manager - 18.24 seconds from post to desktop
Windows 7 was installed in the Virtual Machine as Windows 8.1 locked at the splash screen, all installs were done on the same 120 GB SSD drive.
do systemd-analyze see what it says there, I get around 4-6 seconds depending on what I disable, on a laptop with ssd I normally disable Modem Manager and other crap that I dont need, I also enable read ahead so after a few boots it speeds up.
Cheers mate will do.
And here are the results:
Startup finished in 352us (firmware) + 43us (loader) + 2.441s (kernel) + 3.162s (userspace) = 5.603s
I think I may have an issue with my bios
installed on a 2tb drive and there is another 1.5 tb in my pc
Startup finished in 14.679s (firmware) + 4.895s (loader) + 5.347s (kernel) + 11.668s (userspace) = 36.591s
