Of course, you need a reference temperature, but I'm sure you will find that online. If the log reveals an overheating problem, th...

Re: Beim Systemstart 60 Sekunden Denkpause?

Vielleicht brauchen deine USB-Geräte unterschiedlich lang um erkannt zu werden. Kannst mal versuchen scandelay=1 an die Kerneloptionen dranzuhängen, dann dürfte er keine so langen „Denkpausen” machen.
