    Hi,

    Installed a new 250Gb HDD (the WD one) in my Macbook last night. Used SuperDuper to clone it beforehand...but it's WAY slower to startup now, once booted into OSX everything seems fine.

    I notice that when I boot with the option key it shows the OSX volume as being named 'Untitled' as opposed to the disk name in OSX which is 'Macintosh HD' .. any idea how to change that? Wondered if it was related to the slow boot issue...

    Thanks!
    Adam

    Was this just the first boot after the change (if so that's natural since there's a lot of caches that SuperDuper! omits that needs to be rebuild on the first boot), or does it happen on any boot...?

    same thing happened to me. so, i just reinstalled OS X, reinstalled apps and dragged over my home dir from the old drive, and now it boots up in a few seconds :)

    Try this: go to System Preferences - Startup Disk - make sure your OS X folder is selected.
