    Ran Boot camp. After partitioning hard drive it ask me to put windows disk in, install windows, then put mac os x leapord disk in after to install drivers. I put original windows xp in, then it reads windows disk for a short time then spits it out and screen turns black and it tells me to "insert bootable device then hit any key" I put windows disk back in and hit any key and nothing happens for twenty min. Finally I turn power off, and turn back on and it spits disk back out. I then put Mac os x Leopard disk in and it does same thing but noe it won't give me disk back. I keep turing off then back on and it keeps giving me promt to insert bootable disk and hit any key but it won't give me disk thats insde. What do I do next.... 1. Do I take hard drive out and re-install and maybe it will reset? 2. Do I buy new harddrive and re-place and start from scratch? 3. Is there a way to manually get disk out? What next Please????

    new core 2 duo white mac book with 120 gb HD and 1 gig of ram. It was bought from Apple store in August of this year. I hope I have'nt totally ruined it.

    Sounds like you don't have the Windows disc that is required.

    Regardless.. reboot and hold down Option. Choose your OS X boot partition. Hit Return.
