    One day I was restarting after booting to windows and suddenly a progress bar is in the bootup screen. I do not know why this happened and it takes really long to boot. After it boots in, a login screen apears and I didn't even set that option before. Now every time I boot into osx, the progress bar appears. No it's not a firmware update because it happens every time I boot. I tried to repair my disk and it said there was a problem every time. So anyone know how to fix this problem?

    I have the same exact problem - started one day after I booted into Boot Camp. Now takes 5 - 10 minutes.

    I hear a reinstall is in order. Before setting it off... put in the boot disk - go to disk utilities - and do a disk scan - then go for it. I don't know if that's the long term solution - I doubt it is. I have a feeling anyone iusing Boot Camp will eventually have this issue. NO!

    Tried everything so far

    Ive uninstalled windows 7 32 bit from using bootcamp assistant but checking in disc utility it seems the drive has not reintegrated the old windows partition back into osx. i thought it was a firmware issue but like you said it should have updated once and then stopped doing it. I think i might have no option but to do a celan install of snow leopard and reformat the hard disc again. if anyone has any idea how to fix let me know:rolleyes:
