Boot in Safe Mode
Keep in mind, a Safe Mode takes much longer than a normal boot.
Once you are in Safe Mode, right or control click the MacintoshHD icon on your Desktop then click Get Info.
See: Capacity & Available. Make sure there's at least 15% free disk. Any less could be why it's taking your Mac so long to startup.
To restart, click the Apple menu icon top left in the screen. From the drop down menu click Restart.
If there's enough free disk space, restart your Mac while holding down the Command + R keys for OS X Recovery OS X Recovery
The startup disk may need repairing.

I followed your instructions. I use the disk tools, verified disk, it's ok. Is it possible the real problem is video card driver? or some components with 10.8.4 cause this?

Do you, by any chance, have an empty SD card adapter connected to your Mac? It messes up after the 10.8.4 update.
