They are very slow to boot specially if you have multiple switches in a stack . Not much you can do about it other than to reload on off hours. Part of the problem is the slow process of electing a stackmaster and then the boot diagnostics also take a long time . This is something cisco should work on , i have read some competitors boot in like a minute or 2 .

Please try adding this line "boot system flash:flash:c3560-ipbase-mz.122-25.SEE3/c3560-ipbase-mz.122-25.SEE3.bin".
