Most of the startx delay problems we have found are caused by incorrect
data in video BIOSes about what display devices are possibly connected
or what i2c port should be used for detection.  You can work around
these problems with the X config option "IgnoreDisplayDevices"

 

Please see the article titled "Linux - Configuration options" for more details.
