First post here.

I did a clean install today, Fedora 21. The initialization is taking minutes to finish, before with Ubuntu was much faster.

So, systemd-analyze gives me this:

Startup finished in 1.729s (firmware) + 3.570s (loader) + 1.119s (kernel) + 53.276s (initrd) + 2.623s (userspace) = 1min 2.318s

Any ideias why initrd is taking that much time?

During startup, at the Fedora logo, press the 'esc' key to see which services are being started. As the list of services tick through, you might be able to see where the bulk of the time is being used. If you can find out which service is taking time, we can help fix it.
