Hello all,

I noticed that booting in a virtualization product is very fast from USB or HD (15 seconds), but booting on my PC is very slow (5 minutes). I tested this on two different PCs with different motherboads and BIOS. It is not a big deal, but I am curious now.

What could be the reason for that? The USB has read speed of 30MB. The size of the image is 150MB.

Cheers,
Dave

Maybe the BIOS only supports USB 1.1 while booting.

Which PE do you boot in 15sec in a VM?

PS: Besides what jaclaz already said, don't forget that a VM gets help from the Host-OS in form of a cache for the drive.

Thanks.

The BIOS in my motherboard probably supports only USB 1.1 (but no documentation or specs that mentions/confirms this).

Cheers, Dave
