Boot times

Post by AllanPen » Tue May 29, 2018 12:41 pm

I recently took the plunge and shrunk my laptop ssd drive to accommodate Mint. Actually I am a long time Mint user, but was a bit nervous dealing with the new UEFI format. Anyways it all went well. Also my ageing PC crashed and I built a new one with a B360 HD3 MB and an i5-8400 CPU with 16GB RAM.
I have a question. The laptop boots in 12 seconds. The PC is about 30 seconds and still multiple times faster than Windows 10. This is not a complaint, but I'm curious as to why my laptop boots Mint a couple of times faster than my PC. The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 15-5578.

The laptop has an SSD. Does the PC have an SSD or hard disk?

If the PC has a hard disk, then the laptop will boot quicker because is has an SSD, which is usually faster than a hard disk.

this will tell you errors in boot (some can be fixed some issues like nvidia driver loading is up to nvidia devs.

Code: Select all

dmesg | grep -i "error\|warn\|fail"
this will tell you how everything is loaded (not available in 17.3)

Code: Select all

systemd-analyze blame
the more hardware you have installed the longer the boot will be. i have 5 spinning drives and settled for slow boot a while back but around 30-45 seconds is fine for me. sometimes when things are updating 1 minute is also fine

Yikes this doesn't look too good; I must have done something wrong.

@AllanPen
reboot a few times and check again dmesg | grep -i "error\|warn\|fail" some errors may be gone . ACPI errors are common but not so many. updating kernel can remove some but also new errors appear.

Did three reboots with the same results. Upgraded kernel to v4.14.15; same results:
