    Hi there!

    Recently my windows partition got corrupted and I couldnt access it anymore. So I deleted it all and tried to reinstall windows by creating a partition with bootcamp. It didnt work as bootcamp couldnt recognize the installation DVD.

    Then, with the partition already created, I tried to boot the macbook via DVD so I could normally install windows in the partition I had already created.

    The problem here is that when I press C or hold option and select the DVD, it freezes at a black screen. Nothing happens and I have to reboot it. No matter what I do. I hve already tried to set the disc to initiate the system, Ive already repaired permissions and verified the disc.

    Nothing works at all.

    And remember, I have already installed windows this way. The superdrive reads other discs with no problems!

    Any thoughts?!

    Is it the grey restore disc that came with your Mac?
