    Hi there:

    I have a mbp with a bootcamp (osx and xp). I managed to set xp as the default startup partition but now i did something wrong and i don't remember where to set it.

    I can't set the default startup partition on xp because i am unable to start the bootcamp program. Is it possible to do it on OSX?

    System-preference->startup disk show only Mac osx HD.

    You mean that it's now booting XP by default and you want to set it back to OS X? You can't do it through the Boot Camp control panel in XP?

    For some reason, i am unable to start the bootcamp control, its hang with a error message that say (KbdMgr.exe) "the memory cannot read ####".

    I'm still not sure whether you want to set the startup disk to OS X or to XP.

    My OS X system preference shows both:
