@pastrychef - which NVME SSD are you using? I am reading about some TRIM issues with the Samsungs causing the Monterey boot times to be excessively long. Are you having any problems? I think we have the same NVME -- Samsung 970 EVO
I was going to update to Monterey this weekend but I'm probably going to hold off until I see some clarity from the Bluetooth and NVME problems.
I currently have Western Digital SN750 Black 1TB NVMe SSDs in my Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming and my Dell Vostro 3480 laptop. My Samsung 970 EVO is in my HP ProDesk 400 G6.
By default, the Samsung SSDs should not cause slow boot times. It can cause slow boot times if you have a custom setting for config.plist > Kernel > Add > SetApfsTrimTimeout.
The problem is that the controller on some Samsung SSDs don't work right with macOS. By default, Trim takes too long with macOS and never really completes. The workaround is to use the OpenCore "SetApfsTrimTimeout" setting to give it as much time as it needs to complete the Trim operation. This is when you would experience a boot delay.
