    Hello all,

    I was using bootcamp beta when I didn't have a leopard.
    I had no problem switching back and forth, but after installing a leopard, the option to go to window side is gone. Like I was able to go to system preference>startup disk>windows, but windows is gone now.
    I tried restarting the computer and hold down the option key, but this global(?) icon came on and stuck there for few minutes and went into osx.

    For now only way to get to the windows side is to take out osx hard drive and leave only window hard drive in there. (I have two hard drives, one for osx and other for windows)

    Thanks in advance.

    Were you using Boot Camp under Tiger?

    It's possible that when you installed Leopard, it wrote over your Boot Camp setup. You might need to set up Boot Camp again (from within Leopard), and hope your Windows partition is still intact.

    yea, I also updated the windows like the link you sent me...but still it doesn't show the windows in the startup disk...Seems like I need to reformat my windows hard drive order to get the windows back to the startup disk...sigh...

    Before I do the unthinkable, anyone have any ideas? :(
