    I was running Boot Camp on here for a while with a 5gb partition for Windows Xp and then I realized I never even used it on here and I would rather just do everything in Mac OS X so I removed the partition using the Boot Camp wizard.

    Now it seems that my Macbook (2.16ghz, 2gb ram, 160gb HD) takes forever to boot; like it takes 10-20 seconds just for the Apple to appear when you start the laptop, then it goes normally. It's just when I first start it up it takes a good 10-20 seconds on a white screen for that apple logo to appear then my macbook starts to boot.

    Does anyone know what is going on? Is there anyway to repair this cause this was not happening before boot camp.

    In Preferences, go to Startup Disk, select your internal hard drive and OK it. You should find that things speed up a bit afterwards during boot-up.
