MacMini takes long time to boot until Apple Logo
I have got a 2012 Mac Mini, i7 CPU, 16 GB RAM installed. Last year I extended the disc capacity by adding a 240GB SSD as boot drive and took the default 1TB HDD for /Users as second HDD.
Last weeks the Mini started to take a "very long time" to boot until the Apple Logo appears:
I switch on the Mini, it takes up to 5 or 6 seconds until the Apple Logo (grey one) appears and then, 3 seconds later, I can login (so the boot process of the OS seems to be quiet fast).
What have I done?
Last weeks I decided to switch off the Mini instead of let it "sleep" and also I switched of the power board (power strip).
As I noticed the MIni to take a longer time to "find" its boot device (seems to be), I switched off the Mini but not the power board, but the "problem" remains.
Everything else is working fine - using option key for choice of boot device on boot etc.
Should I take care of it or is a SMC reset recommended etc.?
