To be realistic -- probably NOTHING!
The HP specs say your model has a fast i7 processor and a fast SSD -- the combination of which should product almost instantaneous boots.
You can't upgrade processors in All-in-Ones because they are basically huge laptops.
We generally advise folks with slow PCs to swap in an SSD, but you already have one and it would involve a LOT of work, since again, this is basically a huge laptop PC.
There is a possibility that the 2TB HDD is failing, but that should not slow down the boot process to any degree.
All I can suggest is running the HP diags to check out the HDD.
This issue is often due to a failing drive.
So, let's check that first, because if it is failing, it would need to be replaced and there is no point then in doing anything else until we confirm that.
If your PC is new enough to support UEFI, you can use these steps to test the HDD (Hard Disk Drive): http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00439024
If not, to check the HDD you have to follow these steps:
1) Press Esc key repeatedly, several times a second, while rebooting the laptop. Do NOT hold the key down, just press it over and over.
2) Eventually, you will see an HP Startup Menu
3) Press the Function key for testing the hard drive (usually F2) and let it run.
If the drive checks out OK, then report that and I can provide you options for reinstalling Windows on your PC.
Please note that if your model has an SSD instead of an HDD, these diagnostics might not work properly.
