Thread: Strange Startup

  1. #1
    Strange Startup
    During start the MacBook screen turns black and a couple of pages of text scroll by. The text seems to be reporting status. Immediately afterward the computer continues starting up without any issues. Also, when I shut down I get a similar screen but with only a few lines of text, then it shuts down normally. I suspect that this can somehow be turned off. Any help would be appreciated.
