Hi all,

Hoping you can help me figure out where to look for an annoying boot delay. Everything is working great except for roughly a 30-40 sec black screen in between Clover and the Apple logo. When booting off the Clover on UniBeast, I immediately get an apple boot logo at 4K, that then switches to the scaled 1080p hidpi version shortly before the login screen. When booting off the native Clover install, I go straight to the scaled apple logo after a very long delay.

My first thought was the fact that it was an APFS drive was causing it, but when I boot the same SSD using the USB Clover EFI I don't have this problem.

Any suggestions on where to look?

Nate
