    I've recently installed Windows 7 via bootcamp. When I hold down the alt key to change the boot up disk, it freezes for about 10 seconds when I select the windows disk. When it loads windows, there is a black screen with a white flashing _ in the top corner, it takes about 20 seconds for windows to load for some reason. Is this normal ? Is there anything I can do to fix/speed up the load time. ?

    Thank You

    Have you tried inserting the 32 bit disc while booted to 32 bit Vista? That way you can do an in-place upgrade.
