    Hello all,

    I just purchased Leopard, I kinda wish I didn't now.. but I'm having problems.. I got started with Bootcamp Assistant, and popped in the Windows XP Home Edition Disk, and now I'm stuck between a blank grey screen and a reoccurring black screen that read "bootable device, insert boot disk and press any key" or something of the like... I have no boot disk, and I can't get the disk to eject. Any suggestions?

    Ahhh, happened to my co worker... Hit "Alt/option key" to choose OS X as your bootable device, remove the xp partition, and retry what you did. Also make sure the XP Home Disk is SP2, if it is not, search "Slipstream XP disk".
