    I'm having some major problems with my bootcamp. Recently I reset my pram on my mac mini, (I was having problems being stuck on a white screen during reboot). Now ever since I reset the pram, I can no longer access my Windows XP using bootcamp. When I restart --> hold down option key --> select Windows drive. I get stuck on the Windows XP loading screen, it's not completely frozen, the loading bar moves slowly, but never progresses to start-up. I've left it for hours and it just stays on that screen.

    I should also mention that ever since I reset my pram my fan on the mac mini is on high at all times, I can't seem to fix that either.

    Any help with ANY of this would be really appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Do you have the Install CD?

    You might want to run chkdsk /r from the Windows install CD.

    This should repair any disk errors that might be effecting the start of windows.

    There are a lot of good instructions on how to do it on other websites...
