I'm experienceing a slow boot issue when booting from the 10.10 64-bit CD. It stays at the command prompt for a minute and then gnome starts at a blank background for a couple of minutes before the installer pops up. The installer takes a minute to continue to the partioning screen after clicking forward and also stalls at installing system from downloaded package with progress bar at about 3/4 full on the installer screen. I had the installer download updates during installation and also install third party software both checked. I have an EVGA X58 3X SLI motherboard, 12GB of RAM, Core i7 920 CPU, EVGA Geforce GTX 470 video card and Acer H233H monitor connected via HDMI.
