    Hi I'm using a SR macbook with a bootcamp partition. After the first installation of xp it was running fine. I switched off the machine then today I held alt and only the mac osx option comes up- NO WINDOWS!!! The partition is there, I used fusion to verify this.

    Can anyone think of a solution to this?

    That maybe your problem then,a few people had this issue awhile back with SR machines,anyways after some reading up it turned out
    that the partition needs to NTFS for the drive to show up when pressing the alt key at bootup
