Any ideas.. Just got a Macbook pro 13" 160GB, carbon copied the drive to a 500GB 7200rpm SATA, all works fine though just seems to sit on the white screen at startup for a good 30 seconds before the spinning timer comes up to boot.. once booted, this drive flies.. just annoying that it takes a while to cold boot..

Anyone else seen this?
QUOTE Thanks
