    Hello everyone,
    I have a problem that I really need help with.

    I have run boot camp assistant.
    When I pop in the windows disc the mac restarts.
    After a little wait I get the message:

    "no bootable device. please load a boot disc and press any key to continue."

    I have no idea what to do here so am really in need of your hlp!

    Thanks

    Rob

    Thanks for that. And for the welcome.

    Ok, so that helped a bit.

    I can now get, holding option, to the grey boot selection screen.
    I can put in my windows disc which appears on the boot screen.

    If I choose it I get a black screen with something like this:

    "1.
    2.
    please choose boot type_"

    Any ideas?

    This is driving me crazy!

    I should add that the keyboard is completely unresponsive.
