Default OSX Boot and POST questions - 04-15-2009, 01:45 AM

When I first installed OSX it took about 2 seconds for the dell logo to appear and disappear and then another 5 seconds for the computer to default to the hard drive. Then, about a month ago it shortened the time at the second screen to 3 seconds. Is there a way to bypass this screen altogether? In other words, go from the dell logo straight to the white screen with the apple logo?

You could use the "quiet boot" option from dellefi
