    I insert my Windows XP install disc, boot into Windows, but it says, "Disk Error, Press any key to restart." So I press a key, but nothing happens. I tried booting into the disc, and it says, "Press any key to boot from disc..." So, I press a key, still, nothing happens. This time, it says, "Disk Error Press any key to restart." I press a key, nothing happens.:confused:

    It happened to me before when trying to install XP into my Boot camp partition.
    For some reason, if you miss the first attempt when it prompts you to restart the computer it then doens't recognize it.

    Power down your mac by holding the power button.
    The restart, boot in Mac OSX, use boot camp assistant again and then start the Windows install, be aware when it is about to end and hit the key.

    Then boot with the windows cd and finish the install.

    If you are using a wireless internet connection, check that your network key is the proper one for the Windows Configuration, sometimes you may need to enter the key in hex for the Windows side.
