    OSX - Cannot startup after aborting Win OS installation in Bootcamp
    Help - I tried to install Win XP in BootCamp but aborted it. Now my iMac does not startup or boot.

    Tried all ways to get OS X to boot. Tried 'C', Command X, S, V, etc. Cannot even boot using the Leopard Restore Disk. Was on the phone with Apple support and they cannot resolve it. Need product specialist but had to hang up - too late.

    Hardware Test (restart + D) yields a flashing folder with a question mark. Any ideas what I can try next. I have an appointment with the local Apple store.

    Sounds like you may have corrupted the file system information. One of the following tools might help...
