  • D201GLY2A boot times

    I am setting up new CarPC. I decided to go with the D201GLY2A to replace my old AOpen.

    The biggest problem I am seeing is how long this thing takes to start booting. It will sit in the BIOS for at least 20-30 seconds for no reason. I tried various options without much luck, has anyone seen this? Any ideas on how to speed things up a bit?

    Thanks!

        yeah turn off all other boot options and legacy mode for usb

        eh so it just boots from teh hard drivem no optical or usb or network booting.
        that speeds it up a heap

          Turn off legacy USB. It boots much, much faster.

            Thanks!

            Thanks for the suggestions. It seems that when I disabled legacy in the BIOS it did not persist for some reason. So I created a new BIOS with it disabled. It also has the BMW logo for the splash screen. I shared it out, in case anyone is interested: http://www.vulfson.com/carpc/bmwbios.exe

              How did you create your own bios. What software did you use to do it with.

              Thanks

                Intel Integrator Toolkit (http://www.intel.com/design/motherbd...k/download.htm). The have two versions depending on what motherboard you have.
