ei fellas i need your help.

Just recently, I noticed some dead pixels in my screen so i sent my macbook pro (early 2011 model / OSX 10.6.8) for repairs to a local certified apple repair shop here in the Philippines. Luckily it's still covered by applecare care till march 2012 so they took it in and replaced my LCD (the entire clamshell!) for free. After 3 days i finally got my MBP back yesterday.

When i got it back yesterday. I fired it up and was greeted with this screen...



... it took a hefty 5 - 10 minutes to boot up and the tech explained that it's normal due to software / firmware updates that may be running due my LCD replacement.

So i took my MBP home and opened it again. But i was greeted again by the said screen. I checked my software up dates and everything seems to be updated. I tried restarting my MBP again but the same screen and 5-10 minute boot up still happens...

any advice, what i can do without bring it back to the shop again not unless it's necessary? TIA

The first thing I would try may not work but won't take long. Once the machine has booted open System Preferences and go to the "Startup Disk pane. Click on your hard drive to make sure it is selected then restart the machine.

If it is still slow rebooting I would try running Disk Utility to verify the drive and see if there are any errors If so let Disk Utility repair them. You may need to boot from the Recovery partition (Lion) ir OS X DVD (Snow Leopard) to perform the repairs.

What you are seeing is the Safe Mode Boot.
It should not be doing that.
Take it back and have then fix it properly this time.

If you are running OSX Lion (10.7.x) check out these directions [Mac Tips] How To Repair Disks or Reinstall OS X Lion Without Install Disc Using Lion Recovery [Video added] | iDevice Daily

If you are running Snow Leopard boot from the Snow Leopard DVD and follow these directions Upgrading to OS X 10.5 Leopard - Verify and Repair Your Hard Drive. You don't need to perform step 9 unless the disk is so messed up that a reinstallation is needed.
