Heh, sorry for the underestimation.

Never felt like the Flash speed has been an issue for me. Some bit slow on response, nothing more. Ah, and my installation was from network, so I had to use NFS instead of HTTP to fetch the data, the writing was slow and http suffered timeouts.

But, I must add, I never wen beyond pilot tests with XCP, no production. In my case I stuck with the setup of a orchestration platform.

I wrote up a cookbook to automate the initrd rebuild with a post-install
script for those using an XCP answer file.  It occurs to me that
/etc/fstab should mount / with the noatime option, and (something a
script can't know how to do) move the swapfile somewhere else.

Great reference.

In my case, I have generated the initrd once and then booted the nodes from PXE using it, with the same mechanism I used to install them initially.
