I even ran a hard disk benchmark inside Ubuntu which is inside the ext hdd , results were at par with a normal 2. I’ve tried several different flash drives but no luck. This is the most interesting part. They both have ICH7, if than even matters. Hmm, is there a jumper on the back of the drive? It takes 10 times longer for the boot image and initramfs to load off the flash than the K8NE did.

Copyright c Tweak Town Pty Ltd. Booting off from an osx86 dvd but placed on an external hdd is so slow. So I tried an enclosure of a 3. But aside from the USB thing, this board rocks! Booting off with the same hard drive in my Laptop takes 2 mins. I don’t know about the rev 2.

This by far is the weirdest ever. I’m also having problems with the USB power.

If you don’t hear from them by monday I would ask again So It is still slow by itself then? I hope some people who gigabute this board can confirm that it is normal.
I also have other Enclosures here and tried those, it is still slow.
The time now is Once it is loaded, the sytem itself is much faster that the old one, but the slow loading of the boot image and initramfs from the flash is KILLING me, since I am constantly rebooting to test new code on multiple configs.
I just sent the ticket to them, but if they ask me to return the board for replacement. Do you have a ga-f31m-es2l USB Device you could test boot from, or can you remove the drive from that one and boot from the drive only? I hope I get news from gigabyte.

I’ll try to send another ticket. I dunno, it still doesn’t work. I don’t know what is happening! I just tried now.
I think USB 2. Got mine RMAed but I’m still waiting it will have the same problem. If this is normal, I guess that’s what I get for what Gigabyge pay for.
It works fine except for one thing — USB speed booting off of the flash drives. I’m already tempted to check it with my 10k WD raptor to see if it is the same.
I think only 5 people posted this issue over the internet. Using the same external drive tried others as wellin my laptop ICH8 it is way faster. Page 1 of 2 1 2 Last Jump to page: Hmm, is there a jumper on the back of the drive?

But after the boot process and it is already in the desktop. Well, the USB booting is a no biggie because I can wait. They both have ICH7, if uxb even matters. Results 1 to 10 of I see often they reply in hours, but it is already Friday night there now.
They haven’t replied yet.
