Hi,

Today, my Macbook Pro 15" started to automatically boot up in Safe Boot / Safe Mode. So every time I boot up, I have to wait 5-10 minutes and stuff. It's not normal.

I tried:
Restarting, Shutting down and booting.
Resetting PRAM, NVRAM
Verifying and repairing Hard Disk in Disk Utility (it fails). Tried in Mac OS and OS Installation Disk.
etc...

I got this computer 6 days ago, and there is already this problem. Is there a way without reinstalling the OS? I have Windows installed on it for gaming, but I don't see anything else that could be causing the problem.

Please help!!

Thanks.

Sounds like it could be a faulty HD.
To rule this out, zeroing out the HD and reinstalling OS X is the way to see if this is the case.
*test it before reinstalling Windows.
If this doesn't resolve the issue, contact Apple, or just go to the Apple store within 14 days of your purchase and exchange it.
After the 14 days, you'll have to make an appointment with the genius bar.
QUOTE Thanks
