    i2c nvidia hangs boot for over a minute

    See attached picture of boot screen.

    This bug is discussed on askubuntu here:https://askubuntu.com/questions/1278...g-i2c-transfer

    The solutions proffered are drastic and not simple. Has anyone any simple fix for this?

    Cheers, Tony

    EDIT: see post #3 red herring

    #2 doesn't seem drastic or too complex:

    You may want to create a file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist_i2c-nvidia-gpu.conf with these contents: blacklist i2c_nvidia_gpu. This file prevents loading the problematic driver.

    This old fart stuffed it up again.....I did some more digging and the nvidia thing was a red herring.

    The actual problem turns out to be my second nvme drive a Sabrent 2tb. fsck is taking forever on this new drive every boot.

    As a temporary measure I disabled fsck on boot in my grub configuration, not an ideal thing. I have created a support ticket on the sabrent site, let's hope they can

    sort it out for me.

    Apologies to all, Tony.
