    Question Dual boot Lucid(10.04) takes 2 minutes to boot

    Hey,

    I used to have Ubuntu 11.04 installed on my ThinkPad SL510 laptop with Windows XP. After I upgraded the Ubuntu to 11.10. It takes me 30 minutes to boot after select Ubuntu from boot menu. After that I reinstalled Ubuntu 10.04. But it still takes about 2 minutes to book after select Ubuntu from boot menu. Windows XP could boot within 30 seconds. Can anyone tell me how could I trouble shoot this please?

    11.10 is heavier than it's predecessors. WinXP is a small OS of the 2001. You cannot compare them.

    In your case I feel there is an Ubuntu problem with your hardware, means Ubuntu doesn't collaborate well with one aspect of your computer, usually the video card.

    Try to see if there is a difference installing the proprietary drivers for your video card.

    If you failed with Ubuntu try other OS like PuppyLinux which is a very light version of Ubuntu.

    this was happening to me but after a couple of boots it fixed itself.
    now it's like 45 sec.

    shutdown was also taking forever around 3min
    now 30sec.

    System->Administration->HardwareDivers tells me no proprietary drivers are in use with the system.

    I installed the bootChart. The book time is around 4 minutes now. It shuts down quite quick within about 30 seconds. Please see the bootChart image at here. Can any one helps to troubleshoot this please?

    Hey,

    I have been trying to solve this problem. But without luck The bootchart image is http://o-r-q.info/images/rocky-lapto...20111210-1.png. I interpret it as most of 7 minutes are spending on I/O waiting. Could anyone help me out please?
