bootup time on VMware
« on: May 15, 2012, 04:29:11 AM »
Host: Windows 7, AMD C-50, 1GHz, 2GB RAM

Guest: TC 4.5.1 on VMware Player 4.2

Boot Code: home=sda1 opt=sda1

Persistence: no backup



Takes about 40-50 seconds to "checking extensions..." and total one minute to boot up.
Is this normal or too long?

A bit too long, assuming you have proper virtualization acceleration. I don't know whether the free VMWare products give you that.

If you boot with "showapps", you can see which extension takes the most time.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
