OK, so I would assume that;
sda1 - winre
sda2 - ms reserved
sda3 - windows ESP
sda4 - windows
sda5 - recovery partition
sda6 - openSUSE /
sda7 - /home
sda8 - /var
sda9 - swap
sda9 - openSUSE ESP
This is windows 8 or windows 7 (I’m guessing windows 7 with the
Having the openSUSE ESP at the end of the drive would cause some minor
slow down for boot, having var on a separate partition another slowdown
as systemd needs to mount this, having a 100GB / partition sort of
negates the need for a separate var one?
Can your system support SATA III?
dmesg |grep SATA
Seems a pity to have such a nice set of hardware somewhat crippled with
a slow (as in rotation speed and onboard cache) and large drive IMHO…
Both windows and openSUSE can co-exist on the same ESP (as in /boot/efi
or in windows EFI), when installing openSUSE you can choose to mount,
but not format.
So improvements could be made, but that would require a re-think on the
drive setup (partitioning) and if you would be up to getting a
different drive? Do you need all that space?
So, for the systemd output, what does show;
Maybe someone with more KDE usage can come up with some ideas how to
improve the 22 seconds to get the graphical target up… some is disk
access, maybe the above will highlight something.
You can also run;
systemd-analyze plot > systemd_boot.svg
You can look at this (no need to post here, just an fyi for you) and see
how things boot up.
Note, if you moved the windows os to the end of the drive, it would
also boot slower as well…
