    Hey forum,

    I have come across a problem that I am hoping you folks know the answer to.* I recently installed 2GB Ram on my 20" intel iMac 2.0 GHz and everything is working fine and dandy in OS X, but I am having a weird issue in XP.* Firstly, my XP partition is formatted as FAT32 and is 11GB.* For some reason when I try to boot up in XP, the mouse and keyboard are unresponsive and once the desktop comes up, the screen goes black and jumps back into the white screen where OS X is ready to boot up.* I have a feeling that I may have to reinstall my XP partition, but I'd like to find out if there is an easy fix.* Thanks.

    Did you try booting XP in "F8" Safe Mode or Last Known Good configuration, and then looking in the Event Log for possible problems?
