Boot without network takes ages.

Hi.

I have disabled all networking and adapters in dietpi-config, as I am going to make some not-connected video players.

However DietPi still asks for the network during boot, and after 10 retires it gives up, and it then takes approx 2 minutes before the boot process continues.

Whats wrong?

Hi.
Have you tried go to “dietpi-config => Network Options: Misc => Boot Net Wait”, and then set “disabled” option?

On top of that you need to disable network time sync attempts:
dietpi-config > Advanced Options > Time sync mode > 0 : Custom
