Fast Boot for Laptops

Reported by: yerenkow Owned by: kris
Priority: major Milestone: 7.1.1

Keywords: Cc:


Detect if we on Laptop;
Propose to install not big FreeBSD boot loader (F1, etc), but a little MBR boot loader.
We should select this by default only if we see exactly one hard drive with a whole partition, dedicated to PC-BSD.
If user change mind, and chose split disk and leave one more partition - we should recommend him install boot loader (so he could boot to other OS)
If user preferred to choose bootable hard drive in BIOS, then he could make benefit of fatser loading (almost 10 seconds there).

This seems unnecessary with 8.0. By default we no longer install the MBR, unless the user specifically enables it. This causes all dedicated systems to automatically do "fast-boot".
