    After I made the partition and all of that for my macbook, I had to restart my computer so I can clean the XP disk. After I took it out and re put it in, I went to my Mac os X desktop and went to boot camp assistant, ect. And then hit setup Windors, or whatever.
    after I hit that it went into setup mode. But before that, I felt it wasn't clean enough and hit eject. (it was a mistake, I get it)
    It went to the menu, "No bootable device -- Insert boot dick and press any key

    I put in my XP disk and hit a key, but nothing happens.
    I restart my mac and take the disk out, but it returns to this menu.

    Please, I'n worried. How can I get back to my mac OS X desktop? please help.

    Have you tried pressing option when booting the macbook, or, if that doesn't work, you can try resetting the pram.

    just be careful what you are putting into your Macbook, could be rather embarrassing explaining that to the doctor/genius.

    Yeah, thanks.
    My computer seems to be running slightly choppy. I've had to erase a partition 2 or 3 times, reinstalled, I had to hold down my power button for 10 seconds to force retard a couple of times, ect.

    Anything I can do to speed her up?
