On starting up my Macbook, First I get the blue/grey/metallic screen [boot screen] with apple logo & the revolving thingie. after that, the screen changes to deep blue, then to light blue & it is then that the login screen appears, with my custom image in the background.

In 10.5.5, I used to go from the boot screen to the login screen without the shades of blue in between. Any idea how I can be able to do that again? Right now the booting process is exceptionally ugly.

Normal slow boot while your Mac is tiding up the system.
Try running YASU (Yet another system utility) freeware.

Lets see how Yet another system utility helps...
