Ads is on a distinguished road
Mac Specs: iMac G5. 1GB Ram, Super Drive.

Tried installing XP on bootcamp and it went smoothly until XP had installed and had to restart but then it kept looping through the install. I took it out and tried to go back to osx but when i turned it on it was just a white/grey screen.

I have tried the disks
I have tried rebooting PMU
I have tried rebooting ram

Holding down C results with a folder sign and a question mark


I really need help!

EDIT: It kind of looks like the Disks that came with my iMac are blank. I tried them in a windows laptop and nothing is showing on the disks at all...

Mac disks cannot be read by Windoze. Besides why do you put your Mac install disk on a PeeCee? Isn't this to be used on a Mac? I have no experience using Windoze, Boot Camp so someone else will have to jump in here to help out.

try booting externally using ur install discs....which as MHC said, will not work on a PC, so are most likely not blank.
