    I was just trying to set up Boot Camp for the first time, but when I went to reset it, it came up with a black screen. In the upper left corner there is a big white cursor. Single user mode and holding down C don't seem to be working. I still get that same cursor since I tried that Boot Camp setup. What exactly do I need to do?

    Thanks,

    _J3r._


    p.s. I just installed Leopard up from Tiger also. Everything else worked fine until I did that Boot Camp thing.

    Hold down the option key on boot. It sounds like your Windows partition is currently the default; you can change this in System Preferences.

    Have you actually run the Windows installer yet?

    No problem. I had that problem myself when I first installed Windows, and you wouldn't believe how long that problem plagued me until I figured out the solution. :D
