Long delay before OSX starts up

Recommended Posts



I have a dedicated machine for OSX86 using this components:


Asus P5LD2

P4 3,6GHz

2 GB PC5300

250 GB IDE



Everthing works smoothly as heaven. Except one thing:

When I startup my machine there is quiet long time between the bioscheck and the darwinloader.

After the bios check I get a blanks screen with a cursor blinking for about 30 seconds and then suddenly the darwinloader comes up following by the nice bootscreen.


Why takes this so much time. How can I remove that delay?

I have no timing-settings in com.apple.boot.plist


Who knows it?
