    my first gen alu imac installed win xp sp2 flawlessly,
    now the new april 08 imac reboots to setup windows
    but all thats happening is a black screen with a flashing _.
    however, installing windows from within vmware works.
    but that partition cannot be booted, right?
    or is it possible to create the win partition from within osx?
    i'm seriously in trouble here!
