    Question reboot question
    hello, when I reboot my mac mini sometimes, before it goes even to the apple logo, it displays an image of the harddrive, and you have to click an arrow pointing towards it before to starts the main boot into the system

    does anyone know why that comes up please? thanks

    That's the boot menu. If you had a CD inserted that would also show up at the menu. You are simply choosing to boot from the HD when you see that screen. To possibly make it go away, go to SYSTEM PREFERENCES and STARTUP DISK. Make sure you choose the OS X folder. Hopefully doing this yourself will make this page go away during startup.
