    Have OS X 10.6 snow leopard.
    Installing windows xp sp 2.
    Did everything, then when windows was done it wanted to go through the whole reloading process. Window screen comes up and then goes away.
    When I saw the drives that were partioned I was like wait what is that drive taking a 6 digit number with all available..so I deleted that.
    Guess it messed up because now I am reinstalling the mac os x software.
    Is there step by step instructions for installing windows using bootcamp somewhere?
    Would love that link.
    Thanks in advance

    just google 'bootcamp install instructions' there is an official PDF apple has online from their website.

    also if i were you i would nuke the entire system and start from scratch first installing a fresh copy of osx then go from there. it sounds like u realy fuggered up your partitions
