So the Snow Leopard 10.6.3 DVD is booted from, disk utility used to delete partitions & 10.6.8 is installed with other updates from the built in software update successfully. Boot Camp is started & ran alright then rebooted. Then XP disc is booted from, formats bootcamp partition (3) as NTFS & runs as expected then it restarts after finishing format & loading. It says to press option to choose the XP disc for ejection, then the windows drive is booted from for the 1st time and says... Windows could not start because of an error in the software.
