From the time Clover starts loading (after b1f: init 5) to the time the boot selection screen shows, about 20 seconds passes.
I followed the suggestion of another post and unplugged all of my USB devices and everything went much faster. (about 4 seconds vs 20) I plugged in one device at a time and recorded the time to find the culprit. Here is the result:
// Added USB Device Time 1 Time 2 (seconds)
Keyboard 4.200 4.202
+Arduino 4.416 4.390
+Mouse 4.316 4.169
+Tartarus 4.740 4.463
+Monitor (Hub) 4.587 4.738
+Monitor (Hub) -> Webcam 4.919 4.934
+Bluetooth Dongle 7.280 7.270
+Wireless Xbox Controller 7.357 7.186
+External Hard Drive 19.219 18.781
The Bluetooth Dongle and the External Hard Drive seem to be slowing it down the most. Is there anything I can do about this?
Clover is on version 2.3k build 2015-05-29 19:32:05
I'm running Yosemite (10.10.3)
BIOS is up to date (F11)
It may be important to note that my motherboard does not support UEFI.
