    Hi all, I wan t to install windows on my imac(2.8Ghz, 2gb, 2600 HD) but for some reason when i partition my hardrive and start my computer to install windows, the disc will not boot up. Theres just a black screen with a cursor blinking. I know my windows xp Sp3 disk works because i have done it before successfully before snow leopard (10.5.8).

    Any advice?

    Did you use BootCamp Assistant to create the Windows partition?

    Did you use the Boot Camp assistant or manually partition?

    I suppose the next thing I'd try is deleting and recreating the BC partition.
