Hey guys, I own a 2009 2.66 Quad MP 4.1 with 16GB RAM, two Samsung 830 128GB SSDs (on one of them there is OS X installed, on the other Win7) and a EFI-flashed GTX 570 2560MB from MacVideoCards. When I press the powerbutton, it takes 14.8 seconds until the chime comes. Then, another 9.3 seconds pass until the apple shows up. From there, it takes another 5.7 secs loading and 4.8 secs until I see my desktop. All together 34.8 seconds for booting. Isn't that a bit long for a good MP with a SSD? I'm mostly worried about the 15s waiting for the chime and the 9s for initializing the SSD, the rest seems fine. Even my Late 08 MBP gives the chime 3-4s after pressing the power button and shows the apple just a few secs afterwards. Shutdown times are also not impressive, 20s and NOTHING opened, fresh boot before. Regular shutdown times are 30-40s... The SSDs are install in Bay 1 and the lower DVD drive bay, today I got a PCIe SATA-III card. I'll install it and check if it makes any difference. Is there else anything I can do? Funnily, while measuring the time, the Mac suddendly booted into verbose mode without any letter pressed on the keyboard. I typed "exit" and everything worked fine. While shutting down to take another measuring, it said on the upper right corner something like "CPU unable to unmount drive -y" or something for a few seconds, then the screen turned black. Thanks!
