vol_id is taking too much disk I/O
delete vol_id from your udev rules and don't use uuid in your fstab

slow down, you forgot that I am a newbie

is there any tutorial ?

edit1:
i tried to delete but it's write protected.
i also tried to delete it via terminal but it said
rm: cannot remove `vol_id': Permission denied

edit2:
i deleted it with
sudo rm vol_id
i'm going to restart now. wish me luck. i hope rebooting will be done :crossfingered:

please post the output of 'mount' (without the quotes) and the content of the file '/etc/fstab' and I'll tell you how to edit /etc/fstab

If you did that but didn't edit your fstab, then your system won't boot.

Your new fstab should be:
Code:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
# /dev/sda6
/dev/sda6 /               ext3    relatime,errors=remount-ro 0       1
# /dev/sda7
/dev/sda7 none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/scd0       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0       0
Test to see if that boot fast and modify your /boot/grub/menu.lst to replace all instances of UUID=ef6a1d3d-dc1a-4773-9f97-33108ad129c8 to /dev/sda6
