    my MB pro boots up slow when i installed a new HD
    i recently installed Seagate Momentus XT 750gb 2.5 7200 rpm Hd.

    i noticed it alot slower when i boot up my MB pro.

    im a Dj and i uploaded my music to my new HD and i have 583 gb left.

    Any ideas on how i can speed my MB pro on my start up.

    my specs are 2.4 ghz 4 gb of ram.

    In addition to the good advice you received from bobtomay, also try resetting your PRAM-NVRAM. See the following Apple KB LINK.
