Description of problem:
Installing the Fedora-13-i386-DVD full version onto a HP 16GB USB-Flash drive using a PC took about three hours. In comparison, install it on the hard disk took less than 30 minutes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Partition 300 MB for /boot. 2GB for swap (encrypt). 12 GB for / root (encrypt)
2. Install Fedora-13-i386-DVD image onto the USB-Flash Drive using a PC
Installation took more than three hours to complete.
Like installing onto the Hard Disk, the basic installation should be less than 30 minutes.
Installing Fedora-12-i386-DVD onto a HP 16 GB USB-Flash Drive using a notebook took more than five hours.

Hard drives and USB keys often have very different write speeds. That being said, assigning to kernel for diagnosis of any potential performance issues.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
