Ive recently been getting a flashing planet or globe when I first boot my mac. Nothing is different as such, I'm just curious what it means.

I've never known my macs to boot with a planet. I'm kind of lost. Have you ever changed your boot screen?

Flashing Globe

I also have a flashing globe on start up! My Mac in new and I have never had this happen before - any advice? I have also noticed that the start up time preceding the flashing globe I received this morning has been slower during the previous days.

It is happening because Network Disk is selected in the Startup Disk control panel and no NetBoot servers are available.
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:


1. Open the Startup Disk control panel.
2. Select the appropriate startup disk icon.

3. Close the Startup Disk control panel.

4. Restart the computer.
