#899: GRUB 2 (still) slow
 Reporter:  chrstphrchvz          |      Owner:
     Type:  System Defect         |     Status:  new
 Priority:  minor                 |  Milestone:
Component:  System Configuration  |    Version:  10.0-RELEASE
 Keywords:  grub boot slow hangs  |
 I have installed using the latest 10.0-RC2 ISO
 (PCBSD10.0-RELEASE-p2-01-02-2014-x64-DVD-USB.iso) using default
 partitioning (MBR, GRUB; HDD was zeroed beforehand) and after installing,
 it takes roughly two minutes until PCBSD boots (i.e. for any FreeBSD
 messages to appear). While "stuck" (about one minute on "GRUB loading \
 Welcome to GRUB!", blank, then "Hold left-shift for menu", then blank
 again), the hard drive light blinks about twice a second. (This issue was
 also the case for a recent 9.2 installation attempt--have not yet tried
 the latest 9.2 ISO.)

 I saw this bug report and so far the issue (if mine is the same one) did
 not get resolved in the latest 10.0-RELEASE: #748

 The system is a Toshiba Satellite A135-S2356, 1GB RAM, 1.6GHz Celeron M
 520, ATI Radeon Xpress 200m, 80GB SATA. (Note: it seems to be a rather
 peculiar one since I can't seem to get any ordinary recent Linux
 distribution to boot without eventually hanging--was glad to find that
 PCBSD 9.1 worked).
