    You have a Macbook Pro that is ONLY running Windows XP? And you want to run only OS X?

    If that is the case, then you will need the restore discs that came with the computer. Then all you have to do is boot from the discs, partition the hard drive using Disk Utility, and then let the setup run its course. Within the hour you should have a freshly installed copy of OS X.

    Pop the disc in, restart the computer, and hold C as it loads. Should go straight to OS X setup
