I have 2 g5 towers that when started at the same time one boots in say 30 sec and the other boots in 2 min. these are the same models, same software version. same ram. same every thing as I can see. I have gone through the System Preferences screens and all match

Any thoughts on why the one take so long?

Bad driver maybe. Check device manager to see if any yellow exclamation marks.

Oops Apple. not got a clue where the drivers reside on that.

There must be something in Start Up that the Mac is busy with. Go to the Users & Groups pane in System Preferences and click the Login Items tab, you can remove anything that shouldn't be there by selecting it and tapping the [-]
