I have a mid-2009 post wwdc 3.06 ghz, 4gb ram 17'' mbp that I just installed a new X25M G2 SSD in. I am trying to load windows into bootcamp, but when I start "Bootcamp Assistant" it says: "Boot Camp Assistant cannot be used. You must update your system before using bootcamp setup assistant." I have updated all my software, and there is nothing left to install but it still won't let me launch it. Does anyone know how to fix this? Also, my start-up time is 30s (starting when you push the power button). Is this normal? I thought the performance would be a lot better, but it seems only slightly faster than with my 5400 rpm drive. Shutdown time is blazing fast (maybe 2 s or so). My friend said his startup time was 18s, and he has an older MBP with lower specs. Loading applications is not much faster either. It takes the same time to load a large 100mb word file with audio recording. Did I get a dud? Or did I do something wrong? After I installed the drive, and loaded the Snow Leopard DVD, it would not recognize the drive until after I "erased" it via disk utility (I selected the Mac ...Journaled...option). I didn't write zeroes or anything, I just chose the fastest method. Was I supposed to reformat the disk before installing SL?
