I've been running windows on my mac pro for a few days now, but I've noticed the loading times of windows itself, and any programs in windows are pretty slow. Much slower in fact than my 3 year old IDE equiped pc. All load times on the osx side of things are fine. I'm sure I've read about there being problems with SATA and bootcamp somewhere, but I've searched the forums here and can't find anything relevant. Is there a fix for this, or is there something wrong with my computer? I'm only using windows for a few games really, but load times are back to good old playstation load times, and I really can't be arsed! Any ideas on this?

Hmm...I'm not sure. The Boot Camp 1.1.1 drivers may have fixed this. If not, you may just have to wait for a new release of Boot Camp. You're not using any third party hard drives, are you?

BootCamp is still a beta software so there can still be issues with it

Spent the night searching the net - there are some huge postings on this on other mac sites I've discovered. I haven't tried this yet, but apparently this is the fix. http://macprojournal.com/xp.html

I wouldn't be trusting apple to fix this anytime soon, so I'm gonna give this a go today. This problem will affect everyone with a mac pro and bootcamp, so I'd be checking this out before you assume windows will run well on your mac - it wont.

Well, then I'm not sure what to say. I mean it's not killing you is it?
