    Default Sooo sloooow bootup

    I am using LiveCD on my laptop Compaq V6065ea (Turion X2, 1GB ram, nv 6150, sata 160gb, Broadcom wifi).

    Before, when I was using BT2, bootup process was under 2 minutes. Now, in BT3Beta it takes almost 10 minutes.
    Boot up stops at following lines:
    3 minutes: Serial: 8250/16550 driver $Revision blahblabh, URQ sharing enabled
    1 minute: ide0: BM-DMA at ......., Bios settings: hda: DMA, hdb: PIO
    1 minute: ide0 at 0x........... on irq 14
    1 minute: scsi2 : sata_nv
    1 minute: scsi3 : sata_nv

    Can I make it any faster? I intended to install it on my hdd but if this is how fast it will go, I have my doubts.

    You could try some of the cheat codes.

    That might help you.

    Didn't it occur to you that maybe there's something wrong going on here!?
    No, it shouldn't sit there for minutes at a time at each stage!

    Please supply some basic details:
    Did you check md5 of the iso?
    Did you try re-burning it at slowest possible speed?
    Can you check the disc on another machine (although not always an indicator of disc/burn quality)
    As already mentioned, check out the cheatcodes....
    Check out the wiki's HCL's.....

    The md5 and recorded CD was fine. I tried to use cheat codes, but although I was typing them in in the bootup line, I couldn't get them to work.

    Anyway, everything works fine with the full version of BT3.
