    Is there anyway to bypass the system from looking for a disc on startup? Hence, the SuperDrive looks for a disc, then gives the Apple chime and finally starts up. Typical PC's you can go into a BIOS and re-arrange startup order, but since Apple=EFI, no option. Google didn't help, so I thought I'd try here.

    Any thoughts? I rather it be looking at the hard drive and not the optical drive at all, I usually hold option when I need to boot from a disc anyway.

    System Preferences --> Startup Disk and the disk you choose will be the first startup choice.

    Not quite, it still "seeks", or tries to look for a disc on startup, thus, the sound like ejecting a disc, then it starts up. I'm trying to get it where it will not look for a disc at all whatsoever, short of unplugging the drive, eliminating the eject sound it makes on startup, and speeding up boot time by 1-2 seconds.
