Check startup disk setting if boot times seem slow
Authored by: skim325 on May 15, '09 03:54:04PM

Resetting PRAM (by holding CMD-OPTION-P-R on chime) also resets the the startup disk back to the default installed hard drive inside the computer. Just wait for the second chime and then you can let go of the buttons. This is another way to resolve your issue, and speed up boot times as well.

The only one drawback with resetting the PRAM, is that it also deletes some log files contained in console like the kernel panic logs (I think), which may prevent you from troubleshooting your computer if you're having other issues as well.
