    So i pulled all my drives out of my 2.66 MacPro and just left Bay2 occupied for my windows install.

    And did a clean installation of Windows XP Pro Sp2 on it...and i put my OSX drive back in (10.5.5) and was having issues..

    Restarted reset SMC and PRAM

    as it wasnt detecting a start up disk immediately
    i go into System preferences and try to select the windows drive but it does not appear there.

    i launch the bootcamp assistant and it is neither apparent there either.

    is there anything i can do to have it identify as a windows installed drive or is the process going tohave to start from ground Zero?
    (if that is the case NO BIG DEAL , as i just completed the install in an under an hour and havent installed any thing on the system as of yet.)


    Any advice or help is appreciated, thank you!

    I just partitioned and installed Windows 7 on my MBP and the Windows Partition isn't showing up in my Startup Disk screen either, if I hold Option upon boot, I can manually select it, and I don't mind since I definitely want my default boot partition to be OSX anyways, but let us know if you find out what's causing this.

    Thanks.
