    My Macbook Air 13 (2010) running Lion has developed a weird problem booting.

    I have FileVault running, so when I hit the power button I get prompted for my password. Then the grey screen appears with the apple in the middle and the spinner below. The spinner spins for about 30 seconds, I can hear the cooling fans spin up, then it reboots, I enter my password and it boots up normally.

    I have cleared all caches, repaired disk permissions etc but the problem remains.

    Ideas anyone?

    Have you recently installed/upgraded to Parallels 7? If so, that's the cause - grab their current free update and it should fix it.

    Indeed I did. I just downloaded the update and the problem has gone away.

    Thanks very much!
