    2017 iMac bootup slow

    My 27" iMac boots up slowly, specs are as follows.

    3.4ghz Quadcore Intel Core i5

    16 GB Ram

    Radeon Pro 570 4Gig Ram

    When I first boot up the dreaded spinning wheel appears and I go to the kitchen and make a cup of coffee, by the time I get back the mac has booted. It seems a long time to boot, I also have a external 3TB hdd attached which boots on startup this drive holds graphics, photos and oddbits of my wandering mind.

    Thanks for any ideas, one I have just thought about is to boot the external drive separately and see what happens, I will advise outcome.

    Regards wali60
