MacBook 5.1 (Late 2008) without SuperDrive slow boot

08 February 2013 - 12:43 AM

I have a problem. I just remove SuperDrive. I don't need it. MacOS boot's ok from SSD (in place where HDD was). But any other source boot up very slow. I mean if you try to load Windows partition or boot from USB DVD it takes 2-3 minutes. PowerOn, then grey screen and then loading from not-OSX partition starts.

1. Maybe there is a way to change firmware of any software fix this problem? Looks like macbook try to find superdrive. It cheching hardware when startup.
2. What if I'll use any SATA source like ssd in optibay to replace superdrive. It will fix that delay on startup without superdrive?
3. Maybe any hardware "hack"? I mean dummy sata device like cardreader etc with light weight to trick macbook?
