    I installed Windows 7 Ultimate, runs great and everything, but when I boot into through bootcamp, it takes anywhere from 1-2.5 minutes to get to the "Starting Windows" logo.. Not sure why this is happening.. But when I am running Mac OSX, I start up VMware Fusion 3... I starts up right away... hrmm

    Also, Installed COD World at War, and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2... Both get a Direct X error... but doesnt tell you what error it is, so you can research it.. Call of Duty 4 runs fine...

    Anyone has any ideas, let me know!

    Are you using an MBP, too?

    I can say the issue doesn't occur for some other Macs I've used.

    That's a bios hack. It literally means you pirated Windows 7. If you have a bought/legal version, it shouldn't do it. It doesn't happen on mine.
