Slow boot time from HDisk on some boards

Hello Guys,

I build my image and I could bring everything working with my previous WINCE setup on other boards but in some boards the boot time from EMMc is very slow.

When I boot from SD it takes 20 seconds but in some BBBs when I boot the same image from Emmc it takes almost 2 minutes!

I would not like to force BBB to boot always from SD but I'm thinking on it.
Do you know if is this normal or I can do anything to improve it?

Yes, eMMC boot is slow. The Micron parts are very slow. Element14 boards use the 4GB part from Kingston which are much faster.
I see ~45-55 seconds boot for Micron parts, not two minutes.
