Ubuntu: Slow boot on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


I have a new PC with Windows 10 on the first SSD and I have installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on the second SSD.

On turning the PC on it takes ~30s before the PC beeps and then another 15s before we hit grub. After that it's quick. I have run dmesg and systemd-analyze blame and the reports there show the kernel is quick (~10s) so I think it's something pre-Ubuntu that is causing the issue. I have disabled fast boot in the UEFI BIOS.

The total boot time is ~1min and whilst I am happy to wait this long in general I am just keen to check it's not indicative of anything wrong with the install (i.e. I don't want to proceed then have to reinstall everything in a few months).

I appreciate this won't be enough to go on so appreciate any indication as to the best information to provide to diagnose.
