Check startup disk setting if boot times seem slow
Authored by: Anonymous on May 12, '09 10:12:48AM
Another case of slow booting can be when the boot partition is set incorrectly; for example, after cloning then swapping the boot disk. The original drive might have had the system on partition #2; while the clone might have it on partition #5.

The above hint should fix this case as well.

Check startup disk setting if boot times seem slow

THANKS!!!

After swapping harddisks between my old and new macbook I encountered very sloooow startup of bootX (about 30-40 secs before the grey apple logo appeared)
Been looking all over the web to find what could be the problem and finally found this post.

The solution above was also the cure in my situation!
