Fix SSD slow boot times
Authored by: macosxmax on Feb 07, '12 02:14:05PM

Brilliant. This is exactly what I needed. I had put my original HDD into a FW enclosure, so I mounted that, then went to system prefs/startup disk, and selected the internal SDD. I also clicked the lock for good measure. Now I get to the gray apple logo almost instantly upon booting, and the whole thing takes 15 seconds.

For the record, I did the quick and dirty clone using CCC with the new SSD in the external FW enclosure (after first formatting it with disk utility), then simply swapped disks. Other than the long boot time (now solved) I haven't noticed any negative side effects from doing it this way.
