Pen Drive Linux boot up speed
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 30, 2012
Hello everyone. I have been tasked to create a USB boot stick that will launch Ubuntu and run a script to contact a server. No big deal, I downloaded Ubuntu 12.4, created my usb thumb drive with 12.4 and put the script in the start up manager. So far everything is great with an average boot time of 1m15s however I would like to decrease the time it takes to boot. I have looked at remastersys and uck but I can't get those to work with the pen drive software. I believe this may be because it is all loaded into memory.
Is there a way to increase the boot? If so how? Any help would be great and thanks in advance.

XP vs Linux boot time on OLPC
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 19, 2008
According to Unlimited Potential's Bohdan Raciborski (paid by Microsoft), the newly tweaked XP operating system to fit on the OLPC laptop can boot in 50 seconds. He is claiming that this is 4 times faster than the Linux alternative.
That's rather impressive. Is anyone with one of the Linux versions able to verify this claim (e.g. that Linux boots in 200 seconds?). Can anyone offer any insight into why this is so much faster? If Linux had access to the extra memory that the Microsoft install requires, could it too increase its boot speed time?
This man also claims that the XP system offers up to 20 hours of battery life. How does this compare to Linux?
Please, I'm really not interested in Microsoft bashing here, just a reasoned argument on the above.

creating a dual boot usb stick
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 18, 2011
This may be a really stupid question, but I did a search and couldn't find any answers...
I want my 4Gb USB stick to have 2 different linux options to boot from.
I have separated it into 2 partitions, and installed a different distro on each partition (pupeee on one and deft on the other).
However when I try to boot from the USB stick it will only boot from one or the other partition. How do I make it so that it gives me a choice of which partition to boot from?
How to stop Linux boot up?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 19, 2004
I have just changed the version of JBOSS that I run on my Mandrake 9 box. When the box boots up it tries to start the JBOSS daemon but something goes wrong and it stops subsequent daemons from starting (e.g. ssh) and never gets to a login prompt.
Question is, how can stop the init.d scripts running so that the JBOSS script never runs and I can get a login and try to sort it out?
Linux boot process
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 29, 2013
I spent some time trying to understand the boot process and I have a doubt.
As per my knowledge,stage1 grub points to stage2 which is in /boot/grub/stage2. My question is how come stage1 triggers stage2 when no file-system is mounted. I mean how does it invoke stage2 located at /etc/grub/stage2 when the root file-system is not yet mounted. Since first ever mounting happens during initrd and kernel loading??
Can some please shed some light on this??

[SOLVED] Introductory Question Multi boot USB
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 12, 2013
Greetings. I am a Linux user for 15 years, but new to the forums. So I am not sure where to put this question.
I would like to put Knoppix and Parted Magic on the same usb stick. I have experimented with partitioning the usb flash drive (15GB) and installing Grub and syslinux in order to give me the option of which to boot, but can not get it to work. I can not get both installed and loading the kernel. I've searched and read until I clearly know just enough to be totally confused, though I am quite sure it can be done.
So I am looking to know if what I want can be done, and if so, how to get it done.
Thanks and best wishes.
Mint/Win7/Dual Boot/Usb/ Preferably no data loss
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 22, 2012
Supposedly the 4th most popular distro of Linux on the planet (according to their website). They don't have instructions for creating a live usb and installing the os in a dual boot configuration with Win 7... or more accurately I found 3 utilities that supposedly make live usbs and 40 different posts about configuring dual boot with any OS besides 7 and the ones for 7 were contradictory or just plain wrong. I am not going to ask why the distro's website does not have a short tutorial on how to install the OS in probably the most common configuration because if they don't know that an OS requires installation instructions then they have a great many more issues that need to be addressed.
For the sake of argument let's assume the development team was more competent than the web team (registration for the site and forum are also malfunctioning).
How does a person install Mint in a dual boot configuration with windows 7 via usb (preferably with no data loss)? That question is quasi-
