Yesterday I installed Zorin OS 16.1 from Windows 11. I think the boot time is too long (over 2:30 minutes), because in Windows it took less than 10 seconds (I use a SSD). I tried to run systemd-analyze, the screenshot is attached. I've also tried to delete some flatpaks, but it didn't work.
Sorry for my bad english, I hope someone can solve my problem.
I would create an EFI partition of 512 Mb at Start, format to Ext4.
Then create a root partition of 80 Gb and mark it as '/' (root file system) and flag as bootable, also format to Ext4.
Then create whatever is left as '/home' - again format to Ext4.
Do not activate TRIM - this is know to damage SSD's in Linux and Data cannot be recovered. There is no need for a swap area where SSD's are concerned. You need to install using the 'something else' method to manually set up your partitions.
