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).
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:

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.
