    Hey guys I want to install windows on my sisters macbook so here is the problem I get:

    I open the bootcamp application on OSX and choose the size of the windows partition. Then it formats the windows partition. After that it tells me to put in the windows xp cd, I do this and then I click on Install like the wizards tells me. After clicking on it, the macbook restarts itself and then the windows xp screen should pop up right? right!

    but the problem is, that I can't acces the windows xp screen? I mean the macbook boots up and then there is this symbol "_" on the upper left screen on the macbook and it blinks all the time and NOTHING happens?

    whats the problem whats going on? please help me to fix this.

    thanks in advance

So i accessed the win xp installation and then it ****in tells me to insert an old cd of windows like win 200 win 95? ok I have a win 95 cd... but LOOL? How the **** do I EJECT a CD in middle of the windows installation? the eject button doesnt work?
