I'm experiencing a pretty substantial delay when booting my Mac mini; it takes about 70 seconds from power button to desktop.  I'm using a newly installed OWC SSD and a fresh install of OS X 10.7.4.  After doing performing some basic troubleshooting (repair permissions, clear caches, reset SMC, re-affirm startup disk, etc.), I decided to boot into verbose mode and see where the process was getting delayed

 

The system boots normally until I see the message "AppleThunderboltNHI::enablePower - turn power off, status = 0x0, result_value = 0x0".  The boot process hangs there for 45 seconds before the desktop appears.  The kernel.log confirms this:

Any ideas about what's causing this boot delay?  Although my SSD performs great once the desktop appears, the boot time leaves much to be desired.  My system used to boot faster from my FireWire hard drive!

    It looks like a problem with your HDMI monitor. Try a different one, if possible.

    Did the delay happen at the same point in the message sequence? Did you get the message about CEA extensions?

    Please post an extract from the system log (system.log) spanning the same interval as above.
