Hi, I just bought a used mac pro last week. I'm very happy with it so, but I am having a problem with very slow boot times. The hard drive was reformatted with the install disks, all the updates where installed and everything seemed fine. I installed a few more programs and an extra 2 gigs of ram as well. Somewhere along the way, the boot times went from being extremely fast to very slow. The system gets hung up on a blank white screen right after the "bong" for about 30-45 seconds before the grey apple logo comes up. After that everything goes smoothly. I pulled out the extra 2 gigs of ram and all the usb cords except for the keyboard and mouse and still get the slow boot times. Also ran the hardware utility from the install disk and everyhting checked out ok. I'm not sure where to go from here as I'm pretty new to Macs. I guess it's not really a big deal, the computer flys after everything boots up, but it was nice when it booted so fast before. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
