    Extremely slow 6-7 minute boot time with Monterey 12.0.1

    I can say with absolute certainty that the boot times on this 970 are night and day from when I swapped it for the sn750. I’ll let it run for the 10 weeks it took for my sn750 to die and report back. Worst case, I’ve got a spare that’s identified by name by the OC Devs that’ll be here on Monday.

    Extremely slow 6-7 minute boot time with Monterey 12.0.1

    Since the issues with my SN750, I went back to my Samsung 970 until my replacement drive comes. I went with the Sabrent Rocket Q. However after upgrading to 12.1, my boot times on the 970 are just as fast on the 970 as the SN750. No more glitchy mouse, no more freezing.

    I got it from Amazon. They’re refunding. I’ll see what other options I can find that’ll work.

    Extremely slow 6-7 minute boot time with Monterey 12.0.1

    There's nothing on it anyway, and I've got everything backed up on a few drives. DU shows SMART status as failing. I tried to erase it in recovery and installer to try to do a clean install and it froze again. Currently in Windows (Windows shows it as "Reliability Degraded") erasing the disk and...

    Don't think it's SE. From what I can tell, Gen4 is the SE version. Mine is Gen3 WDS500G3X0C

    Extremely slow 6-7 minute boot time with Monterey 12.0.1

    Not sure if there is any relation between the issues, but within the last week I've been experiencing random freezes and extremely laggy mouse, with no changes made on my system. The reason I'm posting about it here is because after shutting down to recover from a freeze this morning, I got a...

    I switched from Samsung 970 evo to wd black sn750 and it’s night and day! Roughly 5 minutes from picker to desktop on the 970, and less than 15 seconds on the wd!

    Think I'm going to buy one too. You should write to WD and see if you can get a commission :lol:

    What are you using to clone? Carbon Copy doesn't seem to work for me in Monterey.

    << Solved >> BCM94352Z not working with BlueToolFixup

    I was having problems after installation too. No Bluetooth, most of my USB ports stopped working (mapped when I upgraded to 11.3), no WiFi, and none of my other drives were visible..... I disabled BcrmBluetoothInjector, installed BlueToolFixup (2.6.1) and put kexts in order of BcrmFirmwareData...

    I looked at that multiple times and didn't notice...... Either way, I changed it to Disabled and rebooted, but no luck.... update still shows 11.4 Someone on another forum suggested switching to Clover, but I don't want to try the beta bad enough to go through that lol

    The only options for XMP (unless I'm looking in the wrong spot) is Auto or XMP. TPM is disabled, Gatekeeper is set to App Store and identified developers, SIP is enabled, and SecureBootModel is disabled.
