MacBook Problem

Hey Gary, I have 2 problems that i’ve been dealing with for months!

First Problem: Whenever i turn on my mac, the apple logo never shows up, usually i wait about 5 minutes and it pops up. The only i can make it pop up fast is hold option and choose my drive. Any solutions?

Second Problem: Ok i’m trying to partition my macbook but when i try to partition in disk utility i click partition or do any changes. it works on my 2Gb flash drive but not on my hard drive

My Specs Just In Case: Mac Os X 10.4.11, 1.8 GHz, 1Gb Ram.

    The first problem sounds like hard drive trouble. I’d run disk utility first aid and/or have someone look at it. The second issue might have to do with how the drive is formatted. If you are running Tiger, then It is probably not an advanced enough format To repartition on the fly.
