    Is your XP ver compatible with the BootCamp
    I would take a bomb, but I canít stand the noise.

    Press & hold the option key (alt) when re-booting (before grey screen),
    This should give you the option to boot into os x or whatever other os you have.

    Looks like your mac has no startup disk selected.

    Worth a try.
