    So earlier after installing a windows 7 ultimate 64 bit RTM copy into bootcamp, things started acting up;

    After installing some updates for 7, rebooting, it took about a minute to get the HD icons up to even choose one, and after that it was fine, except then the windows partition eventually just had a blinking cursor in the top right and stayed there.

    I went into OSx, removed the 7 partition completely! my HD is one partition for Osx, but when I boot now, it takes yearsssss to just boot to osx, but if I hold option, then I instantly get a Macintosh HD (that's it) and it will go straight away.

    What do I need to do? Reinstall SL? Please god no.

    Partitions seem to be all messed up, maybe I will re create a windows install, and remove it again. (Xp this time)


    Edit, This happened on 2 different MBP's one a 2.8 duo after I put on 7, they both take forever to boot to OSx. (With no BC partition even on)

    You need to reset the PRAM or go to Systems Pref and set the boot disk to MachintoshHD.
