Ok, so I did a problem free install of Win-doze xp pro sp.2 via Boot Camp and all was well, everything went off without a hitch... However I only partitioned 35 GB for Win-doze which after some thought I realized that having installed windoze for the sole purpose of playing games (which require alot of space) Anyway, I played a few games like "Crysis" and "The Last Remnant" both worked fantastically but I didn't want to get too far in them just to have to re-do the boot camp later and lose the data, so I went ahead and uninstalled the windoze partition and proceeded to go through the motions again, However this time around I set aside a 200GB partition. For some reason everything seemed to take MUCH longer, or instance it sat on the "restarting computer..." screen for 5-10 minutes, finally restarted then windoze loaded and went to the collecting information;Dynamic update;preparing installation;installing windoze;finalizing installation screen and said at the bottom 39 minutes to complete installation, well it hung there for what seemed like an hour and the 39 minutes did not decrease finally in slowly ticked away... then the computer finished the install and restarted AGAIN, did the weird "lenghthly" Boot up process with the black screen with the flashing white cursor in the top left, then to the screen that says WINDOWS and loading beneath it... Then to a light blue blank screen with a movable (magnified) white curser/pointer and just hung there forever!! Finally I had to manually hold in the power button and restart the system myself, I held down the option buttom and the windows partition was selectable to boot with so I tried to boot... SAME THING!! Blue bland screen w/ pointer.. Restarted AGAIN, tried booting from disk SAME THING, baby blue screen??? I have now started over and trying to go at it again, only this time formatting in NTFS and not NTFS (Quick) which is what I did the time before this and hoping it makes a difference, though it is still moving VERY slowly again... BTW, I am using a current 3/3/09 model iMac 24" 2.93GHz if any of that matter. PLEASE I beg of you, if you can help I would greatly appreciate it!!
