So for a month or so my MB has been considerably slow at booting. I tried the OS X hardware test, and the results were fine. Could this be a problem of the hard drive or battery? I don't know.

I found this this post on the Apple forums and did what was required. These are the lines I've copied from Console: http://paste.ofcode.org/RUD8QpHwG22bBy3mUYNCPC


Device: Macbook Pro mid-2012

Uses Yosemite (10.10.5)

  • Too long for the description :/ @Hexa – Ind Oubt Jul 18 '16 at 22:45
  • Did it not let you paste it? Also, are you using an SSD? – Hexa Jul 18 '16 at 22:47
  • @Hexa: No it didn't. And I'm not using a SSD - though it could really speed up the system, I'm wondering why the Mac has slowed down like this (no change in any hardware since I started using it) – Ind Oubt Jul 18 '16 at 22:50

    Well first, I still suggest you paste the log into the question (as code, of course). Don't worry about it being too long; People on Stack Exchange are used to long posts :P. Also, if you're not using an SSD, a ~30 sec. startup time is normal. Though a minute or more is definitely a problem. I will look forward into the log, though it might have to wait ~10 hours because I need to sleep 😂 (Israel timezone ;)). Maybe someone else will help you in the meantime – Hexa Jul 18 '16 at 22:56

When you say a long time, how long do you mean. I have the same MBP and it takes quite a while to boot mainly because I don't have an SSD. So depending on how long it takes to boot or really the speed of the overall OS, its probably due to the hard drive being slow. Hope this helps :)

  • Wait so you have an ssd, My mac takes around 4 minutes boot :0 – Nate Jul 19 '16 at 7:59
