    I received my first SSD yesterday and its great but I reinstalled Snow Leopard and then wanted to create the Windows 7 partition. However once Windows 7 installs and everything is done my boot time for OS X goes from about 15 seconds to 35 seconds? I then deleted the partition and boot time was back to normal again. This time I allocated 40gb for Windows 7 instead of 20gb. Same problem was there again. I then deleted the partition again but this time my boot time was stil very long for an SSD.

    Reinstalled Snow Leopard but didn't format and everything is fine. I would love to use boot camp but I think its ridiculous boot times take 35 seconds on an SSD. My 7200 rpm hard drive was exactly 36 seconds. I don't want to sound like I'm compiling because I'm not I just don't understand because something obviously is getting messed up with the Windows 7 partition. I did try all of these things when I had the Windows 7 partition both times:

    *Repair File Permissions via Disk Utility
    *Clean out the boot files with Onyx
    *Made sure OS X is the startup disk.
    *Reset Pram by holding Opt, CMD, P & R
    *Rebooted about 15 times ):

    Any advice greatly appreciated. :)

    UPDATE: I install VM Fusion and it slows down boot time. Why is this?
