Asked and answered hundreds of times. Forum search is your friend:


It would be a good time to update your system as well. Kernel 5.13 is EOL ( End of Life). A good choice would be 5.10 which is LTS (Long Term Support) or 5.15 which is soon to be, LTS.

You didn’t show the overall boot time. What kind of boot time do you expect in a VM?


Disable snapd if you’re not using snaps.
Disable cups if you don’t have a printer.
Disable smb/nmb if you dont’t use samba.
Disable tlp if you don’t need power saving.

Disable NetworkManager if you dont’t use networking.

However, the bottleneck is your slow HDD. Instead of software, you should invest in a SSD.

Wait, and you’re running it in a VM?
