Hello,

Currently, my uniform Mac has Snow Leopard and Windows 7 on bootcamp.
For some unknown reason, SL has been acting weird. The boot time is extremely slow, around 7-10 MINUTES, while shutdown time is 5sec. I could not open bootcamp also (it say i need to install some kind of update, while I already did everything)

Anyway, I will clean install everything. What I am not sure is I also have windows 7 on Bootcamp. If I delete the Mac partrition to re-install SL, will there be any problem with Windows 7 later ?

Thank you,

Before you do any of this, have you done a PRAM reboot? Restart computer holding Command key, option key, p and r all at the same time, until you hear 2 chimes, then let go.

This may or may not do anything for you, but it def can't hurt to try. Just a thought
