Very Happy Hello,
Well
pfix=nocopy
At the boot prompt will achieve that.
But it shouldnt take but a few seconds to copy to ram.
Could be the usb drive or port, or boot method.
Try using Puppy to install Puppy using the "universal installer"
Try another port/drive. You are not using a "hub" are you?

Sounds like the slowness is coming from the USB connection or from the thumbdrive.

I'd try a different thumbdrive and see if moving to a different usb port helps.

You can always do a Frugal install to the hard drive. That will be much faster.

Are you using a front USB port or a back panel USB port?

Is secure boot disabled in the UEFI bios?

Could try a version of Puppy using a newer Linux kernel.

Tahrpup 6.0.2 would be good to try.

I have read several posts about this motherboard is better supported in newer Linux kernels.
