    Hi Apple Experts,
    Am running 10.9.2 on a 2011 iMac and i've never had no issues until now, both these issues appeared at the same time.

    My iMac has started booting very slow, it sticks between the startup Chime and the Apple Logo & Gear showing for around 2-3 Minutes.

    Also my Bluetooth settings are missing from System Preferences and on the Top tool bar is states "Bluetooth: Not Available" and if I goto System Report , the Bluetooth setting says "No Information Found."


    I have tried:

    - Deleting com.apple.Bluetooth.plist etc as suggested loads on here
    - Resetting SMC & Pram
    - Running both AHT (No Hardware Issues found)
    - Shutting down with USB's etc unplugged as Apple suggested in the Bluetooth help page
    - Clean Install (This made the Bluetooth setting vanish from the Top tool Bar)
    - Reinstalling the OS
    - Restoring from a old Time Machine Backup


    Anyone else got any more ideas?



    Thanks

    Sounds like a hardware issue re: the Bluetooth at least. AHT reports faults, but if the hardware is just "missing" (can't be found) but not throwing faults AHT will be clean.
