    ok, so i tried to install vista via bootcamp. and i'm having very serious issues....

    i have 4 hard drives in my mac pro. i used bootcamp to clean 1 of them and make it ready to install windows on.

    so after i boot up with the dvd, it doesn't see that drive, just the other 3. and it says 1 of the other 3 drives is empty! it deleted everything on it! but that's not the worst of my problems

    so i installed it and everyone on the drive that it deleted everything...and the video card doesnt' work. Probably because i only have 1GB of ram right now

    so i booted up in Tiger after that, reformated those 2 drives back, and after installing 2 updates from Apple, i clicked restart, but to never see Tiger again.

    when i turn on the computer, i hold the option button, but nothing happens. after a very long period, i just get a windows message saying insert a bootable drive or something.

    what can i do?

    thanks in advance
