My laptop has a decent i5 processor, 8 gigs of ram. I have dual booted it with Ubuntu 16.04 but it takes too long to boot.

Some information:



Startup finished in 2.630s (firmware) + 2.417s (loader) + 4.067s (kernel) + 44.125s (userspace) = 53.240s


systemd-analyze critical-chain


The time after the unit is active or started is printed after the "@" character.
The time the unit takes to start is printed after the "+" character.

First, is this performance normal? How might I make improvements? Thanks.
