    First of all... SP1 won't work in Bootcamp.... I know it's hindsight now, but you should ALWAYS follow the install instructions to "T" when working with partitions.... and back-up, back-up, back up....


    that said..... try holding OPTION when you reboot...

    Do you even hear the "Bong" sound when you reboot???
