Installed Elementary OS on Lenovo R61 laptop. Takes over 5 minutes to start. Black screen filled with flip_done timed out error messages before splash screen displayed. Once started it takes exactly one minute from the time the password is entered until the desktop is displayed.

  • And you are using elementary OS Juno? This is a issue with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. – Hasan Apr 21 '19 at 12:54

This is a bug. To avoid delay you can use workaround. From terminal run:

  1. sudo nano /etc/default/grub

Then add the kernel boot parameter: video=SVIDEO-1:d, so it will look like this: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash video=SVIDEO-1:d"

  1. sudo update-grub
  2. sudo reboot
