A similar prob with another person happened last week, I advised he
installed bootchart ( in the pss repos IIRC) and after looking at his graph we found there was a find` running before the bootmesg starts, this turned
out that the machine was looking for samba shares which he no longer was
It could be that or it could be something you had plugged in when installing
but no longer have, usb stick, usb drive etc…
Or have you moved deleted any partitions?
If you use bootchart and cannot figure out then post it online somewhere and
drop us the link so we can have a glance.
The first effect of bootchart was to show the log on the screen already when the pause happens (where there was nothing to be seen before). That leads me to believe that it is a DSDT problem, as described in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/acpi/+bug/100110/comments/10. I followed that and configured my modified DSDT file via ACPI_DSDT in /etc/sysconfig/kernel, but that didn’t help. Maybe I made a mistake here somewhere (how can I tell my DSDT has been properly picked up?)

You just caught me turning in, had a really really quick look:
You have raid setup?
Is this pause happening approx 35s in ti;; approx 50s?
That is all I can think of off the top of my head, the cells have decided to
go on strike ( busy day ), will have a look later after a kip.
