Maybe I'm just used to my older MBP, it would boot Snow Leopard in around a minute. My new Mini Server is stock base except for an 8gb G.Skill kit. From the bong to login screen is 2 minutes. After the bong it shows a solid grey screen for 35 seconds, then the Apple logo appears, then the gear. I have tried putting the stock ram back in and it takes the same amount of time, so I assume it's normal. I don't restart it or turn it off very often, it's usually on 24/7. Is this a normal boot time for a Mini Server? Thanks.
