Backtrack 3 is booting slow
I'm just wondering why the BT3 beta is booting very slow?
BT2 boots fast on my laptop but BT3 without Power supply takes veeeeeery long.
And i hope this is gonna be fixed in BT3 final...
Did you try to get out and push?
You didn't take the time to even list the type of laptop you have. Is it the one with the horse-drawn buggy?
Don't assume that it will automagically be fixed when BT3 goes out of beta. Show a little respect and post some info, at least inform as to 'where' it is slowing down in the boot up process.
Well it's a HP Pavilion dv6733eg. Its only when i haven't plugged in the power cable. I dunno what you mean with horse-drawn buggy.. O.o? And the boot process is slowing down at checking the floppy drive. Im not quite shure how long that "slow part" takes because just the floppy check takes about 15 minutes.
As an example how slow it is --> U know that blinking symbol when its booting. The time between appearing and disappearing of that symbol is about 1 minute... o.O
I really hope u can help me.
PS: That's everything that i've tryed:
run from cd
run from usb
install on hdd
i tryed to find an option in bios to save energie ...
Here the whole system spec:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 TK57 Mobile Technologie
NVIDIA® GeForce™ 8400M GS
If you load it off a CD, that will make it quite slow. USB installation is much much quicker. Also, even if you do a USB installation, remove the CD from the CD Drive, or it will load off the CD even if you boot up using the USB
Well the boot of a cd and and a usb stick is quite the same. Both are damn slow
Not sure which type he has, but I am running a HP DC5750 with the AMD 64 Athlon X2 processor, and having issues:

Any suggestions would be appreciated, as I am up against a deadline, and had to switch to a different distro to get my images done.
oddly enough, after trying all the other recommendations for this processor on the forums and not finding any that worked, I ran the BT3 in VESA mode and the issue seems to have cleared up.
Did you accomplish this with or without AC power supply?
