I have the D510MO board with the BIOS 0311 and I am running OpenEmbedded linux
on this board.
While investigating the total startup time, I found that it takes (from power on)
7 seconds to the board beep, additional 6 seconds to the Intel Logo and
further 8 seconds to the LILO boot loader start . So total 21 seconds for the
boot loader start from power on.
USB boot is disabled and HDD device is the first boot device. Also,
the SATA type is set to IDE (not AHCI).
In this system, no VGA display is connected instead a PCI tuner card
(Hauppage WinTV PVR 350) which has the TV-out is used. Also no
keyboard and no mouse are present.
Anybody have an idea why it is taking 21 seconds for the boot prompt ?
Duh, replying to my own post..
So it is taking 21 seconds from power-on to POST. Googling around I see
that the usual time taken is around 10 seconds. So observed the POST
carefully and I could see the values EB, 5A , 69 clearly.
69 --> Reserved for future use (for new busses).
Any one have an idea what could this be for D510MO ?
