    I tried to install Windows XP on my Black Macbook with a 250 gig HD. It worked and got to install menu on the disk. Then it restarted after I selected do not modify partition. Then it came up with DISK ERROR PRESS ANY KEY TO RESTART. Now when I try to make ANY kind of partition it doesn't show up under the option menu at reboot and when I try to boot from the disk it just sits there with a blicking dash and does nothing. WHAT THE HELL?! I have tried it now 4 times and same old crap.

    You have to format the partition. Windows must have it in the NTFS format, rather than the FAT format from Boot Camp.

    I can't get to that point now. I can only create the partition, restart, then it just sits there with a blinking cursor. Nothing else. A black screen with a blinking cursor.

    EDIT: Now for some reason turning it off and unplugging and plugging in the powercord did the trick. Wierd.
