Hi guys, im new to this world but have been learning rapidly, iv have a Dell VIstro 220 2ghz Core Duo , 2gb ram that iv managed to get ML worknig on i was having some major graphics issues but resolved that but have found its very slow booting, it takes 1.20+ to get to the desktop, iv added verious strings into the chameleon plist but none have speeded things up,


it sits on PCI Configuration Begin for over a minute then jumps straight to the desktop.



Below is my boot plist that iv built-up from scratch, it tried it with and with out Kernal Cache and npci.


<key>Boot Banner</key>

<string>No</string>

<string>npci=0x3000</string>

<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>

<string>Yes</string>

<key>UseKernelCache</key>

<string>Yes</string>

<key>Instant Menu</key>

<string>No</string>

<key>Kernel Flags</key>

<string>PCIRootUID=1</string>

<key>Legacy Logo</key>

<string>Yes</string>

<key>Quiet Boot</key>

<string>Yes</string>


Any help would be great


just an addition, iv i add npci=3000 to chameleon boot with -v it flys on passed PCI Config and sticks for almost a minute at ACPI_SMC_Platform with timed out at the end, strange that it goes passed the PCI when i put it in manually even with it in the plist

Hello,
think we need some more informations about your installation method... but you can take a look on the powermanagement-kexts and delete/patch them - helped me on a desktop-system
