    I recently tried to install windows xp on my new macbook pro. Everything was fine untill my computer restarted. It came up with a black screen saying click any button to restart computer. so i did but nothing happened. i can't control my computer in any way. and when i manually hit the power button to turn it off and back on the same thing happens. HELP Please!!!

    in the xp setup make sure you formated "ntfs"

    do you have Windows XP service pack 2?
    if not don't panic there is a way around it.
