hey all..
i've installed xp on my mac via boot camp, and now when i start up my machine i hold downt he ALT/option button on my keyboard, now what i'm supposed to see is both hard disks available and i get to choose one of them, my case that doesn't work, only the Mac Os X is shown i don't know where the xp partition is.. so in order to load up windows i have to go to the systme prefrences >startup disk> and choose xp then restart!
any idea?
