Fix SSD slow boot times
Authored by: e_whizz on Apr 09, '11 03:48:06AM

This has nothing specifically to do with SSDs. Just a new drive. The hint should be changed to be less specific.

The problem is actually not that it can't find the new drive, but that the Mac is specifically looking for the old drive. It will wait in the vane hope of the old drive spinning up and attaching, before it times out and goes through the actually available drives.

Setting the correct disk in Startup Disk will fix the problem as noted, whether the new disk is a SSD or HDD.
