Even thought I have an SSD as my Root and /boot/efi partition, my computer took 1min to 1m30s to boot up, which is pretty slow. So I started looking for answers. I know that Windozes Fast Boot causes some issues with dual booting and when installing a new distro, But if I am not dual booting, And I don't have any plans to switch from garuda, can I use it to make my boot a bit faster? I tried it and Garuda worked with no issues and boot time was reduced by a few seconds I think. I didn't try it a lot because then I saw that my motherboard had a MSI Fast Boot option, and I tried that and now my computer booted up SUPER FAST taking only 30 seconds for the whole process.
The inprovement seemed mainly at the firmware and userspace level.
Time took without any sort of fast boot:
Startup finished in 42.135s (firmware) + 4.088s (loader) + 2.237s (kernel) + 26.057s (userspace) = 1min 14.518s graphical.target reached after 7.187s in userspace
Time took with MSI Fast Boot:
Startup finished in 15.884s (firmware) + 6.119s (loader) + 2.109s (kernel) + 6.075s (userspace) = 30.190s graphical.target reached after 6.042s in userspace
As you can see that MSI Fast Boot shaved off 27s at firmware, and 20s in userspace!
Now this seems too good to be true, so my question is that can this cause any problems in the future? Has anyone tried this before?
I tried looking it up but didn't find anything about MSI Fast Boot.
