my mac is taking long time to start up
The boot process has several stages. Please see this support article and determine at which stage the problem happens.
This did the trick for me, thanks a ton. My 15" MBP would take anywhere from 20-45 minutes to boot up. After these steps it booted in just over a minute. Happy camper again.
