Hey, this is a question about somethin im not sure if apple changed in leopard. As we know, OS X starts up with 3 steps 1) white screen with apple logo 2) Blue background, with white box in the middle and a blue bar showing progress 3) Finallizing start up, and loading finder/desktop Well... I got myself a new macbook and got leopard both at the same time, now somethin I've noticed about my macbooks start up is it goes like this 1)White screen with apple logo 2) blue background flashes 3) my desktop/finder loads Did, apple remove the white box with a blue bar that indicates progress? Or is my mac so fast I can't see it? Even if it is just a case of my mac being really fast shouldn't I at least see SOMETHING, cause my parents iMac (which is running Tiger) I see the white box, for less then half a second, (as in it just sorta flashes)...but with leopard on my macbook i dont see anything.
