You did something else also. The hwinfo manpage says nothing about
running at boot, so I assume it has nothing to do with this.
Something is running at boot that wasn't before, and is slowing down the
boot process. Look at your dmesg output and your grub command line to
see what it may be.
Did you really read my message?
I didn't say that hwinfo was running at boot. I said that I ran hwinfo,
and after than, the beginning booting has been slow.

That's before the Linux kernel is even involved, so how would dmesg be
related? In fact, that's before the contents of a GRUB command line have
any effect, so that's not related either.
