    Hi everyone!

    I am in desperate need of some help. I own a MacBook running OS X Leopard, I love the mac but I prefer the Windows for its compatibility.

    I have a Windows XP Pro disk (But it is a copy) and I partitioned a space on my hard drive. I inserted the disk and it rebooted. Now here is the problem.

    When Leopard boots up with the welcome tune, it stays at a grey screen. Only after a while the apple sign starts and it doesn't do anything from there. I left it on for a whole night and still, nothing.

    I tried holding down the Option key when it booted up, now this is the only way I can start up on my Leopard OS. Then I tried booting it up from the Windows disk. The screen went black and it came up with this message:

    "No bootable devise, please insert the disk and press any key..."

    Am I doing something wrong? If I am please answer with a detailed response because I do need detailed steps to know what I am doing.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Sorry for double post but I found a legit version of my XP disk. I tried it again and the same thing still happened!

    Can anyone please suggest anything?
