All of a sudden my Lion takes 2 minutes to load, and when fully loaded takes 5 minutes until it accepts mouse clicks or keyboard input (mouse pointer can be moved throughout).
I haven't changed any hardware, tried to boot the same install from a different disk and even a new install from my USB stick, but even then the same happens.

Anyone got any ideas what might be happening?

Hey!

Try booting up limiting your memory, by entering the flag maxmem=2048 (it will only load 2GB of RAM) on your bootloader. That worked for me.

If it doesn't, post here. Make sure your Graphics Card is working properly too.

Sadly this didn't work (I only have 2GB installed anyway).

Hi Guys, any news on a fix for this? I am having the same issue and I have no idea what change could have caused this.
Thanks!

It's really puzzling because the same problem happens when I do I new install. It hangs on the first Welcome screen, but the words are moving, so is the mouse key. Just no clicks or keyboard inputs get recognised.
I didn't change my hardware, and everything is working as before under Win 7.

It really does appear to be a time issue. I left my machine for 5 minutes and it still didn't work. I had to do something so came back 30 minutes later and I was able to login. I just rebooted now and have the same issue again. I think this might be related to a BIOS setting. What BIOS version are you running? Did you recently update?

I even reset my BIOS to fail safe, and it still has the same problem...

As did I. I had the FB version so I flashed to the FFb (beta) and still had the same issue. So then I went to the FA and still had the same issue. No change.
