    I find this unacceptable at first it was 14 seconda but now its triple of that?!
    I installed a bootcamp with 40 gb (my ssd is 512) and this is the result?
    Is this expexted or i did something wrong?

    interesting, and this started to happen after creating a bootcamp partition?

    I never heard of this before but maybe having 2 bootable partitions makes the hard drive boot slower to give you time to hit option

    Does this happen when booting from the Windows partition to the OS X partition only, or does it always happen when booting to the OS X partition (after previously using the OS X partition)?

    Try looking in the Startup Disk panel of System Prefs and make sure the correct partition is selected. I'm wondering if somehow that got changed when you were messing around with partitions for Bootcamp.

    If that startup disk is not selected the system looks around for all available boot sources, including net boot, before it starts and it can really slow down the boot process.
