I noticed my boot time is a lot slower lately. I have 10.8.3 with a fusion drive setup and it used to boot so fast that the apple logo wouldn't even get to make a complete circle. Now it spins probably 6 or 7 times. I haven't actually used a stopwatch to see how long it's takin. I'm not sure what caused it, so I decided to check the system.log. I'm getting a bunch of repeated messages that say 3932 m66deaaf0: and then a number. I googled it and I can't find anything on what these mean. I'm pretty sure this is the cause of why it's taking so long. I have attached a screenshot of the messages, but they go on for much longer than you can see in the picture.

I recently ran into the same problem with the "3932 m66xxxx" error and could only boot my system to safe mode. No problems duel booting into Win 7 Ultimate. Ran every utility i could think. Needless to say that I spent many days trying to solve this.


If you are using org.chameleon.Boot.plist my suggestion is to add 





I used to use the string "No" in order to do a clean boot and not have to unplug my HDMI and replug the HDMI using on board Intel HD 4000. This function must have been in recent changes to ##### or Chimera. 


Here is my full org.chameleon.Boot.plist





<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com...rtyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<key>Legacy Logo</key>
        <key>Graphics Mode</key>


Please let me know if this was of any help. 



OSX 10.8.3/4


SANDISK Extreme SSD120

32gb Corsair Vengeance ram, 

i7  3770k 3.7 Ghz

Intel HD 4000 via HDMI

Chimera 2.1.1
