Unusual delays (white screen) when booting Mac OS X

In a prior article, I wrote that it would sometimes take upwards of 15 seconds before my Mac would boot when OCZ SSD drives were installed. It turns out that I'm an idiot and didn't set a startup disk, which is why the machine would sit there on a white screen for so long before starting up.

Set a startup disk, and startup is super fast.
