    I have just installed Windows 7 with Bootcamp...and this is a disaster.

    Now Mac OS is slower, it boots slower than before, apps take much time to open...and the hard disk makes a lot of noise...

    Anyone can help me?

    I have an i5 2010 iMac and 10.6.6.

    Other than the boot loader being aware of the Windows partition at boot up, the two OS are completely separate. It should not adversely effect OS X.........unless of course you're running out of disk space now.

    I have it installed, and it works great. LIke the poster above, it really shouldn't have any affect on performance.

    If you really think its a problem, back everything up, use the os x install disk to re-partition, and reinstall OS X, and make a new partition for Boot Camp.

    There is no reason it should affect anything, especially the hard drive noise level.

    I think that I could be Spotlight and the Bootcamp drive indexing or something like that.

    I changed it to avoid Bootcamp drive, and it runs perfect again.
