I have lenovo x1 yoga (m.2 ssd, 16gb ram, i7) and Ubuntu takes good couple+ minutes to get to the log-in screen. I have just the home folder encrypted.

When it came with windows 10 by default it was booting in less than 10 seconds to the log-in screen.

It spends all the time booting at the purple Ubuntu screen with the dots beneath, blinking.

Then shows up the log-in screen and is fast as hell again.

So, why the extraordinary long boot time?

here is the systemd-analyze blame output

  • Was your Windows 10 using Fast Startup mode? – steeldriver Jun 22 '17 at 9:54
  • No idea, installing ubuntu fresh was the first thing I did. However Is it normal for ubuntu to bootup that long on m2 ssd? – user240891 Jun 23 '17 at 9:40
  • In my experience with NVMe SSD Windows boots in about 8 seconds and Ubuntu about 11 seconds. You can suppress your first two time consuming services: apt-daily.service and NetworkManager-wait-online.service.
