slow boot in mint 19 cinnamon

Hi everyone, I’ve a problem with mint 19 cinnamon boot.
I’ve recently formatted my pc with win 8.1 and I’ve installed linux mint 19 cinnamon.
I love the new OS but the boot is really slow.
With win 8.1 the boot required 6/8 seconds.
With mint is around 58 seconds.

I have a pretty decent pc (asus n550jk), with ssd, 16GB RAM, and Intel i7-4700HQ processor.

I’ve read some other topics concerning this problem but I’m totally new to linux and I can’t resolve this issue.

Here some info that (I think) could be useful.

Thanks in advance.

Can you post the contents of

xed /etc/crypttab


xed /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume

Sorry if I reply to you only now, but I didn’t see your reply at all.

Here’s what you’ve asked me:


Sorry again and thanks for the quick reply.

Sorry, wrong files:



In the meantime I tried to dual-boot with windows 10. With dual-boot the linux boot is also fast. I switched from mint to feren which is very similar but less heavy on battery consumption and everything works pretty well.
Thanks anyway for the support and for the effort you put in this forum.
Best regards.

Great news, happy to hear FerenOS sorted your problem :slight_smile:

Yes, FerenOS is pretty stable.)
