    Hi all, recently I installed an SSD (OCZ Agility 3 60gb) into my MBP 13' 2010...and everything's been great. It's just that whenever I wake up in the morning and turn it on, I get stuck at the white boot screen, with a flashing folder icon with a question mark on it. I assume it means that no boot medium can be located, but one solution I found is to put the OSX install DVD in, let it launch into the installer, then restart. On the following boot the SSD is recognized and boots like a dream. After the first boot, any restarts boots like normal, it just the first cold boot in the morning.

    Anyone know what the problem is?

    Thanks.

    Did you swap out the superdrive for the SSD or did you just replace the original? The boot disk needs to be in the standard location if you're using 2 drives.

    Hmm... Make sure the drive is selected in System Preferences > Startup Disk.

    Yup thats all good, I also just posted a thread on the OCZ forums, hopefully they can figure it out...this is one strange issue.
