My machine 13 inch macbook pro 10.8.2 stucks after FIPS USER SPACE POST for around 50 minutes. It used to stuck for 10-15 minutes earler. The very next output seen on screen after FIPS USER SPACE POST is Synced /var/db/. So I think it's taking time on this step. What might have caused this?

Did you install any new "low-level" Software? I mean, no high-level stuff like "Pages", more like system-tools / virus-software. Maybe "VirusBarrier Express"?

My solution was to remove all of the apps I'd installed over the last few months. Ran a disc check. Restarted, and voilà! Started up normally.
It's not a hardware issue or anything wrong with FIPS regardless of what's been said on this thread (or in my case, by an Apple genius).

Same thing occurring to me. My MacBook Pro 13" Late 2011 with Mountain Lion (10.8.5) sometimes hangs for 20~30 minutes at boot, in verbose i can see that this occurs just after the "FIPS USER Space POST: Success!" message.
I dont use any anti-virus, firewalls or "clean my mac" kind of apps.
One week ago i traced the problem to a very strange situation, the hang usually occurs when i use the NetBeans 7.3 app in the session just before the reboot. Cant explain why it happens, but since i stopped using NetBeans the problem seems to have gone away.

This started happening to me each time I tried to boot my Mac.
I have a MacBook Pro OS Mountain Lion v10.8.4
It's not "stuck" on reboot, but just extremely slow. It would take between 3 minutes to 50 minutes to boot (I booted through Verbose mode). I had tried Verifying/Repairing disk, but it was always "ok", never any errors/fixes needed.
How I Fixed it:
1. I removed 2 Applications with AppCleaner that were recently added to my Mac prior to this problem.
They were Sequel Pro and Monosnap.
2. I had an app (xCode) that it's update was only partially installed, it had been paused. I completed installing the update.
3. I then updated my OS from 10.8.4 to 10.8.5
4. Restarted, and the problem was gone.
I hope this helps someone else, as I was freaking out everytime it happened to me. I do believe its a problem with an application slowing down the boot, in my case, I believe it was Sequel Pro.
