Right so I got this today, MBP working fine up until now. I had tried to get bootcamp to work a few months ago but it didn't so I was using the option key method to get the MBP to give me the option of booting either to OSX or the XP partition. If I went to the XP partition I got the Bootable device error, but OSX always worked. Now this morning I boot up hold the option key but I get no option to go to the operating selection screen I go straight to the bootable device error screen. So I do a bit of reading and try holding c with the OSX install disk in, holding C with the XP disk in and no joy. So I'm thinking corrupt or dead HDD?? No. I take the HDD out and put it my MB nd its working fine, infact its boots directly to OSX doesn't even try to go to XP???? I put the MB HDD in the MBP and guess what! Same Bootable device error! Im at my wits end anyone got any idea whats going on??! I've tried having an external HDD plugged in aswell as this usually shows up as a bootable device if I hold option, but nothing its like the MBP is skipping both the HDD and the Optical drive. HELP!!! Also on another note both my MBP & MB Batteries are totally dead and my MB superdrive is no longer working where is the best place to go for spares? Many thanks, oh and hello to everyone. This being my 1st post and all.
