    Hey folks,

    I use boot camp assistant to install XP, and it succeeded. Then I use parallels, so use boot camp remove the windows, but when I reboot, it still boot to windows partition, and failed to boot of course, and leave message: "No bootable device - insert boot disk and press any key".

    I think this means the boot camp didn't really remove the partition of windows though it looks like it did. Anyone could help me?

    Many thanks here!

    boot into Disk Utility from your install DVD. what partitions do you see? try repairing your Disk.

    then open Start Disk and choose your main partition to boot back into OS X.
