Load time is rediculous

Does the kernel try to probe for any devices during this time period?
Which setting specifically did you change? The timeout or the delay (both
settings under boot message). If you are going to change any timeouts I'd
suggest changing the delay to boot the first image, which defaults to 20

May you code in the power of the source,
may the kernel, libraries, and utilities be with you,
throughout all distributions until the end of the epoch.
