Very Slow Boot - 11.2 after a failed backup with Clonezilla

My goal was to totally backup my laptop image to a usb drive.

I used UNetbootin to create a bootable USB drive with the clonezilla ISO.

I’m not sure if doing this was baaad… or not.

So, I rebooted my laptop and selected the USB drive, and clonezilla popped up. Good start, I went with all the defaults to backup the image on my laptop to the USB drive.

I ran into a problem where it said that I was out of space, so no quite understanding, I backed out of it totally and rebooted my laptop.

When the laptop came up, I had a keyboard failure. I rebooted it again and it went away, but it took forever to boot.

Now when I boot, it takes forever. Forever meaning minutes instead of seconds.

I’m positive I hosed something up. How do I find out what I screwed up, and how then do I fix it?

Was the USB entered into th fstab? If so it may be looking for it.

How do I check for that?

It’s pretty odd. It takes 3 - 4 minutes to boot, and my keyboard is dead the entire time (can’t enter network password).

cat /etc/fstab

At what point is it slow?

Have you pressed esc after the bootup start to see if some process is slow?

Here is the output of cat etc/fstab:
linux-dbrq:/home/yehudah # cat /etc/fstab

I have a 320GB drive in the laptop, looks like it has a swap and two partitions (not sure why - I used default settings to set it up originally)

I also have an SSD 48GB card installed.

It doesn’t show anything else, that’s a good thing I think.

I’ll look at the boot sequence and post the results a little later.
