    Hello and sorry for the newbie questions.

    Just completed installing Windows on my MBP. Everything went seamlessly, however how to I get OSX to boot once the install is complete? Everytime I power up the MBP, it starts with XP.

    Secondly, can I play games using XP on the MBP? The FAQ indicates that there are not enough video drivers out yet for doing so.

    Also, Boot Camp indicated that the OSX installation disk must to inserted upon completion of the XP install. Will I be asked to install this? If so, then fine. If not, when?


    Thanks

    I believe that you hold down option before the Apple sound at startup.

    Yes you can play games, many here do.

    You need to put in the OSX disk after the install so that it can install all the necessary drivers for iSight, etc....

    Thank You Mm07!

    OSX did not ask for the disk upon booting.

    Because you do it in Windows. Windows won't ask either, it just won't work (sound, bluetooth, AirPort, iSight, etc.). Pop it in there booted into Windows and let it auto-run its way to Macifying your Windows install.
