    Error installing Windows XP on OSX
    I have Snow Leopard and I attempted to install an older version of Windows XP on my Macbook. However, it will install and then reboot and then start over again and I cannot get back to OSX. Does anyone know what I should do? Is my hard drive toast?

    Hold the option key down while booting to bring up the boot option menu.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Sadly so. I deleted the partition but the Windows error page will still come up when I boot it up before holding down Option.
