MacBook Pro :: Slow Boot After Cloning?

Jun 28, 2014

I have a problem of a slow boot (3-4 minutes) with my MacBook Pro. Bought my first iMac 27" in December 2013 and going great. Decided to buy a 13" MacBook Pro retina with ssd in May and thought I would clone my iMac to the Pro. Before cloning Pro would boot up fast but after the clone it takes 3-4 minutes.

MacBook Pro :: Cloning Hard Disk Options - Procedure Of Cloning Leopard HD On To Local Back Up Drive?

Sep 19, 2009

On my new MBP I fired and set-up the system, and SL was already installed.
I followed the procedure of cloning my Leopard HD on to a local back-up drive, using CCC, plugged it in to the MBP and booted from the clone.It has booted up without any noticeable issues but when I go to open Disk Utility, or any other program on the cloned disk, I get the '...application X quit unexpectedly' dialogue box

OS X :: Cloning HDD - Boot Up From That Hdd

Feb 27, 2009

I have an ibook g4 1.33ghz (mid 05) laptop and have bout a bigger harddrive for it. I am in the process of cloning my hard drive. I have gotten as far as putting the clone on the new hard drive via a hard drive USB enclosure. I know now that g4's cannot boot from this kind of enclosure. So my question is if I were to just install the new hard drive into my ibook will it just boot up from that disk now or will it not work right?

Mac Pro :: Cloning / Changing Boot Drive

Sep 2, 2008

I have a Mac Pro from 2006, and it has hard drives in all four bays. The first drive is the 250gb default drive from Apple. The rest are Seagate and Samsung. The setup is: 250 (Mac) / 320 (Empty) / 750 (Backup) / 1000 (Media) The 250gb is getting full every once in a while, and I might wish to replace it with another 1000 or even the new seagate 1.5TB one. Whatever .. but since it only has the OS + Program files and some stuff in /home, I want to use the bigger drives for the data. And use the 320gb as the boot drive.

Move (clone) the 250gb to the 320gb Reboot and boot from the 320gb, replacing the 250gb. Which I can then make empty and use until I replace it with a 1000gb drive. I can use CCC to clone the 250gb to the 320gb. But is that enough? How can I then reboot and have the 320gb as if it was the 250gb,. And how can I be certain it is booting from the cloned 320gb, or the original 250gb once I am back into OSX? And can I then repartition the 250gb and still reboot, or will this ruin the master boot record or boot menu setup, etc?

I have no experience with this (yet). And am afraid to end up with a non booting system and a long night of trying to restore using the retail disk for leopard. I hope I am making sense. I just want to move my boot to the 320, and get more space for my boot hd.

OS X :: Boot From Two Operating Systems / Cloning The Hard Drive?

Dec 23, 2010

I want to do some upgrade things with my macbook and need to know if all is correct.My current internal hd is 80gb. I'm on 10.4.11. I plan on going to Snow Leopard but I want to keep my 10.4.11 system too to use. Almost 2 year old intel macbook.

I have superduper. I just got a new 500gb drive for the macbook. I also got a usb external 2.5" enclosure. I haven't done anything yet.What I want to do.... I want to partition the new hd into two. Probably 120gb to clone my current system on (with some room for growth) and the remainder to do a whole new fresh install + various applications of Snow Leopard.

Firstly, is it OK for me to have two separate OS's to boot from?

Secondly, cloning procedure.... should I take out my current hd and put it into the external enclosure, then put in the new hd, then boot from my former drive via usb and clone it onto the newly installed drive?

OR...put the new drive first into the enclosure, clone my system onto it, then switch out the drives? Does it matter which way?

Thirdly, since I'm not going to be doing any upgrading of my 10.4 system to SL....I'm leaving it intact as is.....and then doing a completely new install of SL....is there anything weird I should look out for. I dunno....my admin account...or not being able to have Logic installed more than once on the same machine...or anything else I should be aware of?

OS X :: Slow Boot After Installing Windows Vista Using Boot Camp ?

Dec 25, 2008

This is the 1st time i got a Mac , i bought a black Macbook 2.4GHz some days ago .

I installed Windows Vista Ultimate using Boot Camp , and all went smoothly .

Only 1 prob is when restarting , i have to wait too long for the Windows to log on , i think about 1min with the black screen.

And if i want to boot in Mac OS , i have to push down the D button or the Alt, it takes quite a long time too .

So do you guys have any solution to this problem ? I want to get rid of the waiting time, way too much.

And do you know how to make my Macbook jump right in the choosing section when it starts ? ( so that i dont have to push down any button when it starts )

MacBook Pro :: Slow To Boot / Launch Applications?

Sep 30, 2010

I have had my mbp15 2.4ghz i5 wth the stock drive for some weeks now and overall am quite pleased with it. However I was expecting to be blown away by the speed of it since I am coming from a 1st gen eee and a dell optiplex gx270 2.0ghz p4 4x256mb ram from 2003 but I am not! In all honesty I must admit that I was expecting more, battery life is great and number crunching is far superior on this i5, but my P4 running Ubuntu 10.10 boots in around 17 seconds from cold start to gnome while the MBP15 with OSX 10.6.4 takes roughly a full minute for a full boot, that is around the same time my win7 boots and no where near ubuntu 10.10, is that normal?

Also I did a very scientifically sound experiment starting numerous apps like chrome, safari and opera. All of which take multiple 'bounces' to start where in ubuntu chromium starts near instantly. Of course I couldn't even begin to run adobe cs5 on the p4 or the eee, but in lighter apps there is hardly any difference. I know a sandforce SSD would make a world of difference here and it is on my wishlist for 2011, but even with a 2010 HDD I was expecting more compared to the 2003 dell.

MacBook Pro :: Slow Boot - How To Make Fast

Dec 18, 2010

I have a 2008 2,4 MBP and I have a problem with it. I was using snow leopard and everything was going fine for a few months. Then suddenly, it froze on the desktop at the opening. After few minutes, and command+ctrl+Shift+esc, and a few prayers it sometimes came ok.

I got tired of that and decided to format my hard drive and reinstall osx. I had to do it 3 times before it worked. Then I installed the updates and BANG! New problem! Now it was booting for 6 minutes before I see the desktop.

MacBook Air :: Slow Boot Up Time For 13inch

Jun 24, 2012

I just bought the $1199 Macbook Air (2012). It works great but the start up time from when I hit the power button is significantly slower than my 2011 Macbook air. My 2012 takes about 35-40 seconds to boot-up. My 2011 takes about 15-10 seconds. I have downloaded all the updates and restarted several times but every time its still 35-40 seconds, Is this normal for the 2012's?

MacBook Pro :: Intel X25m Slow Boot Time?

May 22, 2010

I just got my Intel X25m 160gb, and it's really fast, except for the boot time. It takes 30 to 32 seconds to boot each time. I searched around and I did what everyone else did to fix boot times, and I've had no luck. When I got it, I formatted it to Mac OS Extended (Journal), and made sure it was the startup disk in System Preferences. (here's a picture: ) Once the white screen with the apple logo comes up, it takes 10 seconds to boot into OSX. Any suggestions to decrease the boot time?

MacBook Pro :: Super Slow Boot / Can't Find Bootable Device?

May 5, 2010

So earlier after installing a windows 7 ultimate 64 bit RTM copy into bootcamp, things started acting up;

After installing some updates for 7, rebooting, it took about a minute to get the HD icons up to even choose one, and after that it was fine, except then the windows partition eventually just had a blinking cursor in the top right and stayed there.

I went into OSx, removed the 7 partition completely! my HD is one partition for Osx, but when I boot now, it takes yearsssss to just boot to osx, but if I hold option, then I instantly get a Macintosh HD (that's it) and it will go straight away.

What do I need to do? Reinstall SL? Please god no.

Partitions seem to be all messed up, maybe I will re create a windows install, and remove it again. (Xp this time)

Edit, This happened on 2 different MBP's one a 2.8 duo after I put on 7, they both take forever to boot to OSx. (With no BC partition even on)

MacBook Pro :: Encountered A Slow Boot - Cannot Get Audit Control Port?

Apr 13, 2012

the mac boots very slowly recently, but it went faster a month ago. I use Command+V to boot in verbose mode, it displays "[Icannot get audit control port", and then blocks. After waiting for about one minute, it goes on for Ethernet detection, etc. The "one-minute" bothered me a lot. Probably it's a hardware issue or not? Do anyone know what's it, and how to fix it?I have a MBP 2010-13#model, installed with Lion OS.

MacBook :: 7200 RPM Hard Drive Moved From MBP / Slow Boot Time

May 12, 2009

I had a MBP with a 7200 RPM, 320 GB Hitachi Hard drive. I sold the MBP and got a white nvidia MB, but I kept the 7200 RPM drive and used it in the white MB (I did not reinstall the OS). Everything works fine, but I've noticed that it takes a very long time to boot. From the time I turn the MB on, to the time the spinning disk appears, it takes approx. 60 seconds. Other than that, the MB works fine. Should I do a clean install of Leopard. Would this help the slow boot time?

MacBook Pro :: Cloning Old SSD To New SSD On I7 ?

May 3, 2012

I recently transferred or am in the process of transferring my old info from a Mac Pro Tower to a new 2.8 i7 MBP. Previously, I had a 40GB SSD drive with my OS and Apps and it ran perfectly fine, however I needed more space. I ended up buying a Crucial M4 128GB SSD and upgraded the RAM to 16GB and have since had problems with the Crucial. I just now updated the firmware but that didn't seem to fix a thing.So what I've done is initialized the M4 SSD w/ Disk Utility via Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and I've done a clone using Time Machine (it worked but it was really slow and would occasionally lag for 30 seconds out of nowhere with a beach ball) and I've also done a clone using Carbon Copy and that was ridiculously slow (I would get a beach ball every 5-10 seconds and just opening a new window in the finder would cause a beach ball).

I don't know what could be the problem. I've since made a bootable SD card with both Leopard and Lion, thinking I'd just install a brand new OS onto the new SSD, but those aren't working for some reason.So yes, I'm currently using the previous and well-working 40GB SSD, but I'm lost

MacBook Pro :: Is SSD Cloning Good

Dec 5, 2010

I am upgrading my MBP first gen unibody to an SSD drive. I just read that we should not clone an existing HDD to a SSD. The author did not give a reason why. So, my question is: will cloning my current HDD to a new SSD (using Super Duper) adversely affect the SSD performance? My initial plan for upgrading before reading this article was to clone my HDD to a new SSD in an enclosure (using Super Duper), then install the SSD. I thought this would save me a lot of effort restoring everything from scratch.

Intel Mac :: Why Is It Slow On Boot

I have recently done an update and had to re boot my iMac only to find its slower than windows at re booting. I have tried resetting the PRAM and tried cmd-r then going through disk utilities to repair disk, once this was finished it said the disk appears to be ok. It's still just sat there at the grey screen with the apple logo and the loading symbol.

MacBook Pro :: Cloning/Replacing Internal Hdd

Dec 27, 2010

i need to clone and replace my internal hard drive. it's 150 GB and almost full, so I'm replacing it with a Seagate 500 GB so I can upgrade from Os x 10.4 to Snow Leopard, and generally have TONS more space

I'm attempting to do the cloning in Disk Utility- I've got the new internal hard drive connected via USB right now, however when i select it as the destination, the 'Restore' option remains greyed out...

I imagine I need to format my hard drive, however I impulsively clicked 'New Image' and it began creating a disk image of the new hard drive...

MacBook Pro :: Cloning Vs Fresh Install?

Aug 20, 2009

When I first got my Macbook Pro I cloned a 250Gb in the result of a major crash. Since then it has been sitting in a 2.5 enclosure in my drawer. I never imagined that I would use as my primary drive, it was just an afterthought. I wanted to switch to a larger drive and I was going to clone it to save time. Has anyone run into issues with a clone as their primary drive? In short is a cloned drive going perform the same as a fresh install?

OS X :: Best Method For Cloning Drives From IMac To MacBook?

Jan 20, 2009

I use my iMac for my media business, however I will be on the road more this year, and so I was going to put all my files, apps etc over to my work's MacBook so I can get things done for my clients while I'm on the go. Of course the thing is all my apps, files etc are lodged in the iMac, so I thought that the only way to avoid manually reinstalling stuff (and then have to move it all back to the iMac again) was to clone the user account or drive? Is there a way that this can be done?
