    Hi! As you can read as the topic title, my shutdown speed is now SLOW after installing Bootcamp. Is Bootcamp the problem? I've tried to repair disk, repair disk permissions and all that stuff. What can be the problem?

    Thanks in advance,

    Unlikely, unless you made the OS X partition too small.

    I gave Windows 100GB, and I got a 500GB Harddrive. Around 200GB free space at the OSX partition.

    This happens sometimes on OSX 10.6 when system structure becomes corrupted. Boot from OSX DVD and simply install OSX again on your mac partition (your files will NOT be deleted unless you format the drive). After the installation is done, install updates and your OSX will have its shut down speed restored.
    Same thing happened to me, this was the fix for it. Entire process takes about 1h to complete.
