    I tried to install Win XP using bootcamp in Leopard. It said my disk was not valid. I don't know why, it's a full Win XP Pro version....anyway now it will not do anything. It says non bootable device and it won't let me even load the restore disks. What can I do?

    I just want my Leopard back.

    Turn the computer off and then turn it on again, while holding down the ALT key. Eventually it should show you 2 bootable 'disks'. Select the Macintosh one.

    When installing Windows make sure that you fully format the windows partition (dont do a quick format). I had the same problem with my MAC PRO and doing this solved the problem.

    ok...i thought i had it fixed. i can only get it to boot while holding the alt key down. i have deleted the bootcamp partition, but still get the "no boot device" message on bootup.
    any help?
