I just got my refurb'ed macbook pro this past week and have been trying to get boot camp to work. However, after I partition the disk, and it prompts me to insert a Windows XP install disc and "Start Installation". (A new retail windows XP home edition SP2), it restarts and then I get a black screen with:
"No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"
Is there any way around this to get it installed? I was hoping to switch over to mac, but I wanted to be able to run my few windows programs as well ...
Even in Finder, it acts like it cannot read the disc very well, but it is a fresh out of the box factory disc.
Thank you for any advice

Well, got it to work. It was kind of odd, but I tried making a copy of the XP disk. Using the copy it worked fine. Very weird
One other question: After you create the partition, is there any way to increase the size of the partition if you need more space?
