So when I had my 80 X-25M I could swear that the Mac sees it quicker and boots quicker. However since I've cloned the 80 to my new 160 I'm noticing that the Mac seems to take a while to recognise the drive before it gets into it's boot sequence. Since the X-25M's don't fit in my existing enclosures I had to clone the drive to a hard disk and then swap it out , boot from external and clone it to the new one but that shouldn't have made the drive any different in terms of it's layout. So just curious if anybody else has noticed this or not. Can anybody speak to how long it takes for their machine to see the drive? For me it's at least 20 seconds before the boot sequence actually starts which is a lot longer than is expected and certainly a lot longer than the 80 gb X-25M drive.
