    Okay so I installed Windows Vista Business with Boot Camp 1.2 (that was my first mistake) and after I tested it out I ran Boot Camp Assistant again and removed Windows. I have noticed (not only on my Mac Pro, but also on my MacBook Pro and my MacBook) that once you do that, it takes FOREVER to start booting.

    I press the power button and I get the gray screen for at least 50 seconds before the dark gray :apple: shows up. Once that happens it's business as usual.

    Before I put Vista on here, it would pretty much show up instantly.

    I have already used Disk Utility to repair the disk, repair permissions. I've used DiskWarrior on it. Nothing seems to work.


    :confused: Does anyone know what to do? It's really annoying having to wait 50 seconds before my computer even boots.

    I do not have any external harddrives attached or CDs in the drives.

    Sorry. I figured it out 5 minutes after I posted. :eek:

    I just opened System Preferences -> Startup Disk and selected Macintosh HD again. :eek:
