A CPU from 2010 won't give you blistering performance against the demands of modern software. Try @stevef suggestions too.

Topic moved to Startup and Shutdown section.

Using an SSD (if not already) reduces the time required for disk access.

Checking what these commands show might be a starting point to see how the boot up time is spent.

Code: [Select]
systemd-analyze
Code: [Select]
systemd-analyze blame
Code: [Select]
systemd-analyze critical-chain
Code: [Select]
journalctl -b -0 (run this just after a boot)

If unnecessary services are being started at boot, disabling them may help.
Setting static addressing if possible removes the DHCP time

Hi All
I just installed Lite a couple of days ago and am very pleased with the OS except for one thing; on my old Acer laptop (Pentium P6200, 3gb RAM, 500GB HD, on which I cleared everything before installation) the machine is taking around 3 minutes to boot. Any suggestions?

Many thanks for any help.

Chris
