Why is my MacBook slow to boot?
A couple of months ago my MacBook really started to slow down when booting up. I have a 500Gb HD partitioned 300Gb Mac 10.6 and 200Gb Windows XP. Both have plenty of free space. Now it takes 4-5min for the OS 10.6 to fully boot and the XP won't boot at all, just restarts. Is this a hard drive issue? I might add the HD seems noisier than usual.
