Can anyone help me out here? I have a 80GB Intel X25-M G2 that cannot boot in less than 30s. I keep reading that people get bootup times as low as 15s, and I was wondering if there is something I am doing wrong. I am using about 30 GB of SSD space, and I use a 500 GB 7200 RPM Seagate Momentus XT hybrid as a scratch disk (downloads, documents, pictures, etc.) in the optibay. I just did a clean install of snow leopard yesterday, formatted my X25 (wrote zeros, mac [journaled]), installed SL, updated, etc. The bootup time went up to over one minute. I reinstalled snow leopard again (did not format this time) and it went down to 33s. I then reset the pram and it went down to 27s. Now, it's back around 30s. Any tips?
