Hi - thanks for the help. I created a boot camp partition of 25g and installed XP. Everything runs great, I can boot into either one, switch back and forth and it seemed to be ok. However, by default it boots into XP. I did some searching and everywhere says to go into startup disk and select Mac OS to boot into, rather than the boot camp partition. Well, OSX and system preferences startup disk does not show anything other than 'Mac OS' and 'Network'. In xp the boot camp config in Control Panel only lists 'Windows'. I can't figure out how to make them see each other so I can set the default boot os. Anyone know what to do? Thanks again.
