Bootcamp, can't access mac partiton
Yeah, i've had this problem twice now, when i try to access my mac partition it loads up to the apple loading screen, and then it just stays... loading.

I don't now how long i've tried waiting for it to enter mac with no success.
Last time this happend i reformated, but i have some stuff i want to backup this time (which of course i think of when it's to late)

So, wondering if anybody out there has had the same problem, or at least an idea for a solution to my problem.

I'm running Mac OS X 10.5 & Windows XP.

Try to insert the Mac installation DVD, then do a repair disk and a verify disk it might help.

which partition did you format for windows when it asks you in the installer? cause this usually happens when people format their OSX partition.

it should have been "BOOTCAMP"
