    Anyone else noticed this? Compared to 10.4.x and previous gen mbp, I remember the partioning via bootcamp used to take no longer than 45 sec to a minute. Now it takes something like 3-5 minutes to complete!

    Update: Oops sorry didnt realize this was the Mac Pro section.

    The time can vary depending on how much is on your drive. It's literally moving around files to clear space on your drive, so if you've been using the drive for a while and/or you have a lot of files, it's going to take longer.
