    Major Problem with Boot Camp
    I was trying to install bootcamp on a Blackbook, and I had have some major problems.

    The first time I installed it, and it just had me re-do the installation after re-starting. Then the 2nd time I ejected the CD and then it booted into OSx, so I went to Start-up disk, and tried to boot into XP. When I tried that I keep getting a message that says, "Click any key to boot from CD" (Or something of that matter, "Disc Error" "Press Any Key to Restart" but when you press any key nothing happens, so I manually restarted and the same thing happens over and over. I tried putting the XP Disc in, nothing different happens, I tried with the OSx disc, same thing happens, no disc, same thing happens. So I'm stuck and need major help.

    My brother, who put boot camp on my iMac helped me through the installation but it still didn't work.

    Help please!!!

    You need to change the file system to FAT32 or NTFS to run windows. Macs use HFS.

    When you put the windows disc in, format the partition you want windows on with that disc, then install.
