This will tell it to use your hard drive and go searching for a network drive. Seems like they loaded the OS without setting this properly. Then restart. Should be quick now.

Welcome to Apple Discussions
Sometimes externally connect Hard Drives, iPods, network storage devices, etc. can cause long boot times.
Go to: Apple > System Preferences > Startup Disk and select the Macintosh HD as your startup disk, then click on the lock to lock the preference and hit the Restart button.
Also if you have updated not run Disk Utility/Repair Permission recently, you should.

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 18, 2010 8:10 AM (in response to Humpo)Hi guys,
I'm new to the forum, i have recently bought a new imac 27" i7, i don't have any problems with white screens when starting up, the imac runs great, however when i try playing any games thats when the problems start. i installed X-plane it first worked without any problems but not in full resolution, i upgraded the resolution to the maximum imac resolution and from that moment every time i start the game the screen turns white you can hear the imac starting the game and even for a while sound appears, but then after 30 seconds the programs fails and you get a typical apple message.
i have also tried installing need for speed, here i didn't change anything to the graphics however the problem occurred straight away. white screen then the sound of the games menu and crash. did anyone else have this problem? is there a solution to this? i would like to apologize if this matter has been discussed in earlier forums. However i hope there is someone whom is able to give me a helping hand here. Whats wrong???? thanks rubenimac i7/ macbook air, Mac OS X (10.6.2), 1

Ruben by tagging onto someone else's post for help, especially with a different issue, you are threadjacking. You need to start your own thread and state your issue and request help. Be sure to explain everything that you have tried to date to resolve the issue yourself. Also listing any changes that you have made to the Mac or any important peripherals attached would also help.
