One of the common problems is if your network is setup for DHCP, and the network doesn't work, so it will retry until it gets a time out.
However, you could use bootchart, to analyze the boot process.

Kind regards

Please check the start up Application in Ubuntu.System->Preferences->Start Up Applications.Disable any unwanted serviced and applications which run at start up of the system.

You can enable the bootmessages, so you can see on your screen what happens, and where it stops.
At the grub menu screen, press 'e' to get into edit mode, and remove the word "quiet" and change "splash" to "nosplash" on the kernel line.

Download the deb file from
http://packages.ubuntu.com/dapper/al...chart/download
open a terminal
cd to the directory containing the file
type
Code:
sudo dpkg -i bootchart_0.9-0ubuntu6_all.deb


Kind regards
