Slow booting - where to look?

    I recently replace a failing hard drive in an HP laptop. I had good
    partition image backups, so I restored the system to the new drive and
    all was well. ...except that now the system takes far longer to quiet
    down when it boots before I can do anything with it. I have updated
    everything - the new drive is the same brand as the old one, but a newer
    model so there were some driver updates, but that's about all.

    Any suggestions for where to look? I've examined the various logs and
    don't see anything obvious. There is not a slew of errors or anything of
    that sort.

    TIA,
    Jason
