    Has anyone seen any improvements regarding USB 2.0 speed improvements with TI 11 bootable Linux CD? I would love to be able to use this bootable CD and not be bothered wiith making a BartPE or VistPE CD but the USB speed on my HP DV8000t laptop has never been what it should be. Has anyone seen any major improvements in this area and what type of system have you seen these improvements on?

    I appreciate your input.

    I think folks will find it is hit and miss. On some machines, much faster, on others slow as ever. On my laptop, it was kind of slow -- slower than from within Win but not impossibly slow.

    But I urge you to reconsider and give the VistaPE disk a try. I was very hesitant after some frustrating experiences with Bart, but the VistaPE was a breeze to make using Mustang's guide. And ATI runs was well from that CD as from within Win.

    Thanks a lot. In making this VistaPE disk, is it possible to install the programs needed to make the disk, WinBuilder and the WIAK program or whatever and then after your disk is made, then just uninstall these programs to regain disk space.

    Thanks.

    Yes, you can remove the files after you're done to regain the space. However, I would suggest you don't (at least for a while) until you get your build figured out how you want. You can customize it a lot and you may want to play with it and see what works best for you.

    If you have a Vista DVD, then it's easier to use that and you don't have to install the WAIK.

    There is a bunch of diff progs that you can check off to include or exclude on the Vista disk. You might try the defaults (or per Mustang's guide) to start off.

    I just put the stuff on a diff drive, then when I was happy with the VistaPE disk, deleted the stuff. I can always download WAIK and Winbuilder again if I need to. Besides, they're included in one of the ATI backups I've made ;-)

    If you want to go with a flash/usb drive then consider this thread:

    Good luck,

    Mark (k0lo) has developed a much easier way to create the VistaPE flashdrive than what is in the other thread.

    I'm going to get the instructions cleaned up and setup step-by-step and post them when it's done.
