Added a ST95005620AS in Lenovo (2503) docking station as a second drive and it is causing a slow boot in Lenovo T60
Very strange, I added a WD 500GB in place of my CD drive in my R60 and have had no issues. I suggest the following:
1. Pull the Seagate drive from the docking station, does the laptop boot faster (confirm the added drive is really the problem).
2. Put the drive caddy back in with a drive with one of another brand other than the Seagate, see if the performance imorives (confirm its the Seagate which is the problem and not the caddy or docking station).
If performance increases in both cases, do some research on compatibility issues between the IBM and Seagate drives. I would also go to Lenovo's website and update the laptop BIOS... this can easily be accomplished by downloading a tool and doing it through Windows. I had issues with using a non-Lenovo battery with my R60 till I updated the BIOS. Good luck, let me know if you get to the bottom of this. Please rate me if this helps you. Thanks.
