Run console.app and check the boot logs. Look at the time stamps to pinpoint exactly where it's stalling.

When you have this information it's much easier to find a solution.

Mine arrives at the desktop in ~29 seconds, counting from selecting the system drive in the Chameleon GUI.

I'm not counting the BIOS post because it's notoriously slow on my motherboard, even with disabling as much as I can in the BIOS.
My old P4 boots OS X faster than my (resonably) modern PC. I'll time it later and edit this post.
