Slow image download for Dell 3070


  • Hello!

    I have Dell Optiplex 3070 machines which have slow image downloads. It takes around 12 minutes for 20 GB image, and all my other machines, some of them are 10 years old, need around 4-7 minutes, with images of similar size. It has NVME disk so it shouldn't be a problem.

    I've read somewhere that slow download speeds could be connected with unsupported or half supported network drivers. Kernel used is 5.17.3.

    We saw similar issues when using LIE instead of WIE images. Something with the realtek family of NICs. Except our speed dropped to like 200MB speeds. An hour or so for imaging a single machine. If we changed the BIOS from UEFI to Legacy, imaging speeds sped up again.
