I would unplug all but essential USB devices (mouse? keyboard?) and
reboot to see if the long boot time is related to USB (my guess is not).

I would also recommend updating BIOS because it generally does fix
motherboard USB junk. I note that I purchased a new Acer Aspire One just
2 weeks ago and found that my 'edge' USB hard disk didn't work that well
in Linux, didn't work at all in Windows (dual-boot) and BIOS update made
things work right for both.

It's a crap shoot to be sure.
