The problem its the time to boot, i use de tool Bum for diable some service that do not need, I change some service from init.d but the time its same, the boot time takes much :( thanks – UbuntuUser2013 Nov 5 '12 at 4:00
in that case, you I can suggest you three options, 1. Try booting in recovery mode (just to make sure if its problem of some driver loading or something else) 2. Check for loading of hard disks or drives in fstab 3. One solution I tried is use of multiple cores while booting to speed up the process (…) thanks. – Rishi Kolvekar Nov 5 '12 at 7:18
