Do you think systemd has anything to do with it?  I don't know much about
this, but it seems like I read some things in the past couple years about
systemd causing problems like this, and being disliked by Linux purists
because it's monolithic(?) architecture is prone to such problems? (Be
gentle, I know nothing about this. I just recall getting the impression a
few times systemd might cause this.).

Isn't there a tool the OP could run that shows where boot time is spent?

I'm sympathetic to his complaint because I experienced the same thing in
the past. It seems much better now. But, in the 16.xx range, I had some
*very* slow boot times. I remember running a tool which showed a graphical
display of what was taking how much time. It pointed to (what appeared to
be a) black hole of systemd. From what I could tell just from listening to
the machine, it sounded like it was interrogating hard drive connected to
the laptop. I could hear the head moving, resetting. I have the same drive
and things are much better today. It seems a little slow booting, but not 5
minutes like it used to be. (Booting used to be like running gparted. omg.
Why can't that thing figure things out faster? I haven't run it in a long
time either. Maybe it's better. It used to be unuseable unless I executed
it command-line, passing the actual drive I wanted to work with. Otherwise
I could spend *hours* doing just a dozen things.).

To the OP: What do you consider slow? How long is it actually taking?
(Maybe I'm drawing a comparison to my experience that doesn't exist.).
