    i done a clean snow leopard install on to my ssd in my 2.8ghz core2duo macbook pro only a week ago,
    but have now been given an 2.66ghz i7 macbook pro.
    i have swapped the ssd in to my new macbook pro, but its now taking about 75 seconds to boot up when it used to take about 12 seconds in my old macbook pro.
    is there anyway to speed it back up without ding another clean install??
    many thanks all:D

    Reset the PRAM


    Sometimes when you switch drives you need to reset the startup disk and the PRAM. First, go into system preferences, and click on the startup disk tab. Select your SSD, and restart your computer.

    If that doesn't help, then turn your computer off. Hit the power button, and then quickly hold down command, option, P, and R at the same time. The computer should restart twice, then let go of the buttons. You should be good to go.
