You won't get any useful answer until you describe the problem and its context.

So please tell us what is your system (hardware + software), what doesn't work, and what you have tried so far with what results.

Hardware + Software

Hi
This what I found to inform about my machine.

Desktop Acer Emachines ET1331 AMD Athlon 2650e, 1.6GHz, 4096 MB DDR2 Ram, 1 TB 5400 RPM SATA interface (1024 GB), Nvidia Geforce 6150SE nForce 430, Samsung 943 HW monitor.
Came with Windows 7 Home Prem, but I decided to install Ubuntu 12.04 over it which never worked very well. When ubuntu 14.04 arrived I tried the upgrade, and it didn't work. Now I have a version of ubuntu 14.04 (lubuntu) upgraded from ubuntu 12.04, this installed without any updates, and it was not booting properly, then I did a boot repair from the installation disk, after what I posted this because it seemed problem not solved, but have yet a very slow boot. It stops with the cursor blinking a lot of time after the following statement:
[ 5,158386] random: nonblocking pool is initialized
The following perhaps helps:
ET1331:~$ uname -a
Linux lidia-ET1331 3.13.0-48-generic #80-Ubuntu SMP Thu Mar 12 11:16:15 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

ET1331:~$ sudo blkid
dev/sda1: UUID="4b69e9df-ec3b-43eb-8468-9fa7c4516a80" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sda5: UUID="ba360fe1-d4cc-49d6-ac79-7851e46fba51" TYPE="swap"

I am at your disposal for more information you intend to ask me.
Thanks for your availbility.

Hi,

if you search Google with a search argument like:
Code:
"random: nonblocking pool is initialized" slow boot
you will find a lot of similar problems, but I was not able to find a real solution posted yet.

But as some people were happy just going back to Ubuntu 12.04 maybe you could just do that, until you find a real cure. I am not an Ubuntu user, maybe they have some kind of bug tracking system and you can check there if the problem has been reported as it should, and is taken care of. Else you could just file a bug yourself.

In any case I wouldn't bet for a hardware issue as a different Ubuntu version works well on the same machine.
