MBP extremely slow after SSD Upgrade. What's wrong with my mac?
I have a MPB 15" 2.53 mid 2009. I upgraded the standard hard drive to a SSD (512 GB Sandisk X210) purchased from ifixit.
I cloned the factory drive to the SSD using Super Duper. After cloning the HDD to the SSD I installed it and turned it on, it booted up fine but not quite as quickly as I would expect for an SSD.
Verified and reparied disk permissions.
Restert. Boot up time about 1 minute 20 seconds.
Boot up about 1 minute.
Restart. Boot up time about 43 minutes.
I have no idea what happened in the middle there but something is obviously not working right. Now when I click on applications they go gray then take several minutes before launching. I'm not sure what to do. Please help!
