    I used the bootcamp assistant to remove the partition of my XP install. Every time I tried to restart/turn on the computer after that, it would try to load XP still. I would get the message on a black screen "Unable to find boot disk" or something along those lines. To get my computer to load OSX, I would have to hold down option and select my HD. My computer doesn't show XP as being installed or the partition even being there. Anyone know how to fix this?

    Go to System Preferences | System | Startup Disk, from there you can select which disk you want your mac to automatically boot up into when you turn it on.

    Hope that helps, b.
