    Hi guys,

    Yesterday i created a bootcamp partition with windows xp.

    But now i checked my startup disk option at the system preferences menu and i saw i only had the option to boot from a network!

    here is a screenshot (in dutch)

    does disk utility notice the hard drive?

    also, what happens when you hold the option key at start up?

    So when you hold the alt key during startup you can see both volumes?

    Yes, that is correct.

    Only i found that booting takes a lot longer then usual before i can pick it takes like +- 1 min (only see a sort a light blue screen then) Maybe that is when he tries to boot from the network.
