    Default Raspberry Pi

    As an exercise I installed Raspberry Pi OS to a laptop, as detailed in link below

    https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/...rry-pi-desktop

    It is the only system on the hard drive.
    It runs ok but is very slow to boot up.
    Like about five minutes, compared to windows 10 at one minute.
    I have re-installed it, but it remains the same.
    Anyone else tried this out.

    I haven’t tried booting Raspberry Pi OS on a laptop nor want to. It’s too much hassle. What I’ve done is start from the Pi computer hooked to a monitor. The system gets started in less than a minute. But it’s too slow to run something like Tinkercad.

    The problem could be that the Raspberry Pi OS doesn’t recognise your laptop quickly for some reason? Or the startup routine is taking a long time to recognise the rest of your laptop’s software?

    Any OS needs drivers to be able to communicate with its peripherals eg monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers.

    Had to click on the URL to find out what setup you were talking about.

    Thanks for the reply.
    As stated, only as an exercise.
    Wonder they would suggest it if it wasn't practical.

    I wouldn't recommend it.
    I've replaced it with Lubuntu 20.04.
    Runs much better.
