    Hi guys... I'm new to mac, and its been awesome.
    Just a problem I had while I was installing windows with bootcamp and I hope you can help.
    So I by mistake installed windows XP without SP, and obviously MAC drivers wouldn't install on it. So then I uninstalled XP, reinstalled it with a new disk (which had SP2) and did everything all over again.
    So bottom line is that I have macosx and XP, both working now on different partitions, BUT, when I start my computer it goes to some blank screen and says, "no bootable disk found. Please insert bootable disk" or something along those lines, which basically indicates to me that its trying to install XP all over again, and why I don't know. So now when the computer starts, and the white screen comes, I have to hold down the option key in order to select the partition I wanna go to, which is really annoying!!
    Please tell me what is going wrong and how do I get about it? Thanks so much!!

    You need to choose a startup disk. In OS X, System Preferences > Startup Disk.
