    Hey all, if you're willing to read this, then thanks a bunch.

    Last night I tried to install boot camp to my Intel iMac, all was going well until I tried to load reboot using Windows, the Mac froze and said there was a failure and it was going to have to have a cold boot. I did this, and realized that it was STUCK in Windows, no matter what I did it was looking for the Windows CD, and it wouldn't work. Finally I posted a thread and someone said to hold down "C" with Tiger in the drive, I did and it completley re-installed OS X. I lost all my files.

    Today as I'm gaining back my files all was going fine until just 10 minutes ago. I was using CandyBar and all of a sudden, honestly out of no where, my dock disappears and it returns back to normal as if everything was at a brand new boot. And once again ALL OF MY FILES JUST DISAPPEARED.

    Is something seriously wrong with my Mac? I really have no idea what to do, it this happens again I'm going to Apple but have no clue how exactly to contact them.

    I'm assuming you've tried repairing permissions, and restarting...
    What have you tried to fix the problem?

    If you're in your 90 days of free telephone support, or perhaps even if you aren't, try giving Apple a call.. this seems pretty irregular. Hope you get it sorted out, and let us know what resolves your problem.

    If you do that, do not tell them you've been using Boot camp.

    That thing about the dock and Candy Bar happened to me too.

    I didn't lose all my files, but the dock did turn back to a default dock..and I never installed boot camp, I'm on PPC.

    So, that dock issue might not have anything to do with boot camp.

    FWIW

    a suggestion would be "backup all ur files when next time u see them".
