    Since installing a solid state drive into my mid-2012 Macbook pro I've noticed that the bootup process is always different. Sometime the progress bar fills up completely, other times it fills to one fifth of its length and then the desktop shows up.

    Has anyone experienced this and should I be worried?
    By the way, I'm using trim enabler if that helps

    yes, it does
    Only thing is that before installing the solid state drive the bootup time was always consistent

    It's an interesting question perhaps, but it really doesn't sound like anything to be concerned about. Maybe it just depends on how much of the machine state is cached.

    bootup progress bar

    Mine (SSDs too) goes ALWAYS up to 50% of the whole bar, never was concerned about it. Boottimes ~45s due to several PCIe cards in MP 5,1 OS X 10.10.2.

    Cheers

    Overa boot up time for me is about 15 seconds

    To be honest I don't know why the progress bar is still there with rapid booting macs. I know it helps with platter based drives as you have no activity lights. Hopefully it'll be tweaked or removed at some point.

    The progress bar is one of the worst implementations in the history of science.
