"slow" start up/boot times normal?

Recommended Posts

Hi all just got my hackintosh running.  All seems well except it seems like the start up/boot time is slow?  Anyone else experience this?  If possible post start/boot time from completely off to desktop.  Thank you.


My cold (completely off) to desktop start/boot time is 1 minute and 26 seconds (1:26").

Try this:

Clear the kext caches:

sudo chown root:admin (enter password)

sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel

sudo kextcache -system-caches

Do in terminal and reboot. make sure your start up disk is still selected correctly in preferences.
