    I tried to install window XP by bootcamp. However, i have mistakenly installed window SP1 and now i can't install drivers and bootcamp assistant in my window. So what should i do to uninstall the window so that i could enter the mac OS? thanks

    I'd uninstall it using bootcamp assistant if you can then install XP sp2

    thx for your reply. But how can i get access to the bootcamp assistant? i am now stuck inside the window and can't install anything inside the bootcamp cd. When i double click the cd, it said my version of window is not SP2 or higher and then force quit the installation.

    I'm sorry but i don't quite understand, are you in windows or OS X ?, have you tried force quiting or just powering down by holding down the power button then re-booting ?

    i am now in window. However i can't install any drivers or bootcamp assistant in my window. i think i can only get access to boot camp assistant by starting my mac in OS X. How can i start my mac in OS X in this situation?THX.

    have you tried powering down then hold down the alt key while booting up hopefully a bootloader should appear
