Hi, I am a new mac user. I currently have a macbook pro and am having a bit of a problem. I recently installed Windows XP in order to play some games at a friend's house. I couldn't get the partition to work with Bootcamp (some error about not being able to move certain files or something) so I decided to back up all my media and documents to an external harddrive and install XP completely onto my macbook. Everything went smoothly until today when I tried to reinstall OSX. I put in my install disc and chose the option to erase my current partition that was running windows. All was well until I got some error in the middle of installation saying that an error has occured and I should retry installation again. Well fine, but now I do not have enough memory to install even with just the necessary system drivers chosen. I also cannot boot back into XP as I get a blinking question mark when I eject the installation disc.

Do I have to reinstall Windows and then format through DOS and then retry installation or is there an easier way? I can't find my current XP disc at the moment.
QUOTE Thanks
