    Default SOLVED: Slow Boot on Toshiba NB205-NL325 w/BT4 r1

    I copied BT 4 R1 on a usb key using unetbootin and installed it to a separate partition with swap. I am currently running win7/ubuntu 10.04/bt4rf1 on a tri boot setup. Boot screen manager is grub. From the point of selecting BT from grub to getting the command prompt to login takes 10-15 minutes.

    Would anyone direct me on what to check for. I searched google on slow boot bt for netbooks but have not turned up any good results. Once booted to kde it works fine. I'm able to run my apps and pen test fine.

    Seems that I fixed the issue by uninstalling Ubuntu 10.04 and formatting the additional space.
    I re-downloaded BT4 r1 and did a md5 check on distro.
    Installed BT4 r1 back on usb drve via unetbootin.
    Did manual install on free space with 50000mb ext3 and 1000mb swap.
    So now I got a fresh install of BT4 r1 but the boot is still at 5+ minutes.
    pulled up a konsole and entered # fix-splash800 or sudo fix-splash800
    Now it boots up fine.

    From BT4 r1 selection from grub to BT login = 34secs
    From startx to kde desktop = 17secs
