If so please remove it and test again. I think I’ll just stick with it because I’m already happy with this boards performance.

How to boot from USB device?

I’m already tempted to check it with my 10k WD raptor to see if it is the same. However, after booting from the external hard drive, it becomes normal speed. I hope I get news from gigabyte. Please report all spam threads, posts and suspicious members.

SOLVED: USB on Gigabyte G31M-ES2L (Intel ICH7) – Other Peripheral Devices – InsanelyMac Forum

I’ve tried several different flash drives but no luck. They both have ICH7, if than even matters. Results 1 to 10 of I even ran a hard disk benchmark inside Ubuntu which is inside the ext hddresults were at par with a normal 2.


I just got the replacement motherboard sealed and new from the box and it has the same exact problem. Do you have a different USB Device you could test boot from, or can you remove the drive from that one and boot from the drive only?

If you don’t hear from them by monday I would ask again So Gaa-g31m-s2l is still slow by itself then? I tried disabling USB 2.

It takes 10 times longer for the boot image and initramfs to load off the flash than the K8NE did. But aside from the USB thing, this board rocks! The time now is I just sent the ticket to them, but if they ask me to return the board for replacement. Very well could be that USB 2.

I hope some people who has this board can confirm that it is normal. This by far is the weirdest ever. I don’t know what is happening! ga-g31m-s2p

If this is normal, I guess that’s what I get for what I pay for. It ga-g31m-s22l normal as a normal hdd connected to a SATA port.

G31M-ES2L / USB Speed issue

I’ll try to ga-g31m-s2o another ticket. I also tried swapping RAM from my other systems and they’re all the same. If they want me to make a video of the slow boot comparison and post it somewhere, I will.

I think only 5 people posted this issue over the internet.

Join Date Dec Posts I dunno, it still doesn’t work. It works fine except for one thing — USB speed booting off of the flash drives. Using the same external drive tried others as wellin my laptop ICH8 it is way faster. I’m more concerned about the USB slowness. Join Date Jun Posts 1. Booting off from an osx86 dvd but placed on an external hdd is so slow.
