Rage against the machine.

I nailed it down.
It was a Nilox usb webcam. It took forever to get initialized.
I unplugged it and the boot was faster than light.

Still puzzled... first I don't get why setting up the network card 
should wait for *that* usb hardware.

Second, while the webcam was one of the few differences between the 2 
PCs, I was able to have fast boots even when the camera was plugged.

Furthermore there is not too much to change about a usb webcam but 
something has changed... and it was not the usb port for sure.
