Long boot time. What to make of bootchart?

Postby cris9288 on Sun Nov 18, 2012 5:06 pm

As the title states, my laptop takes a while to boot up to the desktop; usually taking about 1.5 minutes. From what I've read, something typical ranges from 15 - 30 seconds, and it would be great if i could get it down to that time.

I've read that it is a good idea to install bootchart, but I have no idea what to make from the results. Would someone be able to provide some insight as to what the graph says about my boot process? Here is my chart:

If it matters, I am dual booting with Windows 7. Thanks for your help.

Hi.
Are you using grub or windows boot manager?

Hello.
Is this boot from dead off to grub table to operating system log in screen?
Or from grub selection to OS?
You are never too late.
