#899: GRUB 2 (still) slow
  Reporter:  chrstphrchvz          |      Owner:  kris
      Type:  System Defect         |     Status:  new
  Priority:  minor                 |  Milestone:
 Component:  System Configuration  |    Version:  10.0-RELEASE
Resolution:                        |   Keywords:  grub boot slow hangs

Comment (by chrstphrchvz):

 I reinstalled using the latest iso (PCBSD10.0-RELEASE-p5-02-11-2014-x64
 -DVD-USB.iso) and chose the FreeBSD boot manager instead of GRUB. It works
 now without any unreasonable delay in booting.

 (I had tried this with another release back in January, but the "F1
 FreeBSD ..." screen would show up and even after pressing F1 nothing would
 happen. The latest iso still produces delayed boot in GRUB, though.)

 (Also, I have not tried GRUB-slice. I suspected FreeBSD boot manager would
 work after getting NAS4Free and PC-BSD 9.1 working on the this machine).

 I suggest to anyone else with this issue to reinstall, if possible, using
 the BSD boot manager: at Disk selection, click Customize, choose Advanced
 setup mode, and change "GRUB" to "BSD".
