Did you check to see if the drive is ok, and error free. 5 to 10 minutes for booting up is not right.

is for full boot i mean when i stop listening read / write on disk an system is usable
i guess i found what i could be, is something spotlight related, spotlight is always indexing on boot
so i used this command found on other post on apple forum

syslog -k Sender mdworker -o -k Sender mds | grep -v boxd | tail | open -f -a TextEdit

i found some error
<Error>: (Normal) Import: Using too many resources after 1408 files (wired: 0 resident: 4358 swapped: 0 regions: 2071), hit usage threshold importing... [cut]

i guess is related to my gmail imap inbox with too many messages, i'm not sure if moving them to local folder would delete from gmail

other spotlight error are

My late 2009 Mac Mini running mavericks took about 20 seconds from the logo until the Finder came up.

Something isn't right if yours is taking 5 to 10 minutes.
