    I just installed 8GB kit in my alu unibody macbook 5,1 and it takes forever to boot. Before it would only take 4 wheel spins to boot.

    So far i've ran onyx, applejack, reset pram, smc and fsck -f in single user mode.

    Is there anyway to fix this without going back to 4GB?

    Here is a link to the ram i bought

    Strange. Seems like you have already done everything I would have suggested. Might be the ram.

    Go back to stock ram and see what happens. If all is fine, put the 8 back in, if problem returns, exchange it for another kit.
