I have a small problem wih slow booting
Fresh install via USB creator on new HDD in my HTPC, Libreelec now boots over 2 minutes.
On previous older HDD it was much faster to boot.
Any ideas how to debug this?
According to dmesg timestamp, these is 2 minutes pause before mounting ext4 filesystem, here is the relevant part:

I don't see anything wrong with the drive, passed all smartctl tests, here is hdparm quick bench:
