    Boot Problem?
    So although this isn't a problem that needs to be addressed immediately, it is one thats been bugging me for a very long time.

    I tried using boot camp a few months ago to install Windows XP, but for some reason, although Windows would boot, it wouldn't allow me to use my macbook's keyboard, touchpad, etc. Also it was the default that my computer booted to for some reason, so I removed it from my system and I thought everything would be back to normal. Unfortunately, every time I reboot my computer (which is about about twice a month anyways) it goes to the grey screen, unless I press option as it's booting to allow me to select the macintosh hard drive. It doesn't seem to effect anything on my computer, however it's just annoying as ****, and I'm a little OCD when it comes to things working as they should.

    Also, is it safe to only boot a macbook pro like twice a month or less? haha
