unibody 2.53ghz, 4gb ram, 512 graphics, 320gb 5400 rpm hd
boot time: 37-45 secs
7200 rpm WD Black Scorpion HDD
35 second boot-timed as soon as power button pushed.
The HDD I installed versus the factory 5400rpm drive and the extra 2gigs of ram I installed dropped my boot time by almost 10 seconds.
Boots in 27 secs. I booted three times and they were all 27 exactly.
17" MBP (specs below)
Boot time approx 40 seconds
With Vertez SSD, start up and ready to go is 22 seconds.
Is my 5400rpm hd slowing down my boot up times?
19sec boot, 10sec shutdown
50 seconds start up and 10 seconds shutdown
UMBP 17"/2.93Ghz/4GB/X25-M 160G/
Boot: 28 seconds
Shutdown: 5 seconds
UMBP 2.4 C2D 4GB RAM
from bong to desktop in 24 seconds and 2 seconds shutdown
Mine is a 2.66Ghz, 4GB Ram, 500GB 5400RPM HDD.
36.4 seconds from power button to fully booted.
Apple Mac Pro 8-Core 2.93GHz (Nehalem) = 28 seconds to boot / 6 seconds to shut down.
Apple MacBook Pro 15" 2.93GHz (Unibody) + 8GB RAM + 64GB Intel X25-E SSD = 16 seconds to boot / 2 second to shut down.
Can I ask what drives you're using for your Mac Pro?
640GB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s
It's slower then my MacBook Pro... Maybe because it's loaded with "Pro-apps" like Maya 2009, Adobe Master, FCP, Logic... while the MacBook Pro is loaded with iLife apps.
2.2GHz 4GB 120GB 54K. Startup=55 seconds Shutdown= 13
Thanks for the info. I always wanted to buy Mac Pro. I think 28secs/6secs is fast enough and those pro-apps wouldn't run as fast on MacBook Pro.
Powerbook G4 12" 1.5ghz
Maybe I'm missing something obvious, but I'm confused as to what the "54K" means.
Perhaps, 5400 rpm?
In any event, my boot-up time is 36.4 seconds from the moment I push the button. That's on a 17" MBP with the standard default set-up.
early 08 2.5ghz, 4gb ram, 512 graphics, 320gb 7200 rpm hd
My mbp is loaded with pro apps, and has simplify media & font explorer x start at boot. Takes 43 seconds from the time I press the button for me to start using it.
1 min 07 sec . I start the timer when I push the power button.
Why so slow ? Can a boot camp partition make it longer ?
Perhaps you have more applications set to Open on Login, or your drive is 4200RPM?
Your Mac OS partition should be on the fastest part of the HD, so no, a boot camp partition would not affect it.
I have no "Open at login Apps" and I have a 7200rpm disk. I'm currently having a look at the system.log to see what's going on. Edit: I created a new topic so I dont pollute this one
cluttered and full harddrive makes your boot time longer..
i just cloned my system to a scorpio and boot times hardly improved. im going to clean it up and defrag it,run the scripts and boot up/shut down few times to make it fast
The HFS+ file system does not need to be defrag. Edit .. maybe it does
