    So I have a Solid State Drive with a OSX Partition and a Windows 7 Partition and a 320 gb hard drive formatted into journaled.

    I went into the "System Preferences" and "Startup Disk" and the only thing I see is "network startup". What does this mean?

    It takes ages to boot into OSX unless I start the computer and manually pick a partition and I'm assuming it's because I don't have a startup disk selected yet. I tried switching the position of the hard drive (SSD in hard drive bay and HDD in optical base and vice versa)

    So yeah, I'm at a bit of a loss. Some help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks guys.

    Boot from the install disc and see if you can select the startup disk from there, it's located on the Menu Bar
