I'm having some issues with the boot speed on my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS laptop. It seems like the hard disk takes forever to mount. I am running Ubuntu on a 5400RPM hard disk, however I don't think it should be running this slow, otherwise I might consider a new hard disk or perhaps a solid-state drive. Windows 7 is booting faster than Ubuntu.

I have logged two sections in dmesg where it seems to be time consuming:

[    3.776769] EXT4-fs (sda6): recovery complete
[    3.787553] EXT4-fs (sda6): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: (null)
