hello all. i had XP installed under BootCamp. realizing that i only used XP like once a year (ok, maybe twice...) i decided to give the space back to OSx using BootCamp assistant. now i get the white screen for like 20 secs before OSx takes over. i searched, but found only a thread with 2 posts.


i would appreciate any help i could get!!
QUOTE Thanks

I also would like to know about how to fully and properly uninstall boot camp form my mb. I was hesitant about making a 100% switch to mac and I realized I only used XP once in the passed month...and that was to use paint...heh. Is there any specific way to uninstall it?
