Hi Guys, I decided to be nice to my girlfriend and upgrade her 2013 macbook pro.. running 10.9.2
(this is the first mac that i have ever touched.. windows and linux user)
I upgraded it with
8gb Samsung ram
500gb Samsung 850 pro ssd (old hdd was 500gb also)
Both, I thought were supported.. after researching
used the restore in disk utility on her mac and just swapped the hdd with the ssd i named it Macintosh SSD instead of Macintosh HD
for the first week it booted in seconds and ran much much faster for her
But then it started booting stupidly slow.. upto 5 minutes on the grey screen and apple logo (once booted up it is very fast.. the running speed isnt effected)
I have repaired disk permissions in disk utility (this brought the time down slightly)
and startup disk is selected to boot from the ssd (the only drive) however this does sometimes default back to being not selected
i have tried to boot up and hold the option key. even after manually clicking the Macintosh ssd it still takes forever to boot
any idea what we should try next? ??
I have just noticed that the Disk identifier is "disk0s2" if this means anything ?
im lost !!
