    Ive come home from uni for the weekend and ive brought my Mac Book Pro with me and while i was here i thought id install XP on it. However i left my OSX install disk back at my room at uni, so instead i downloaded (what i belivie) to be the Bootcamp XP drivers that would be on the OSX installation disk.

    So ive used Bootcamp and partictind the drive (32GB) and installed XP. I have the Bootcamp XP drivers on my USB stick, however when i try to open or run then files it does nothing just absolutly nothing :mad: I think i should also mention that the XP disk i had already has everything updated to SP3.

    On top of that it gives me no option to boot back into OSX when i reset my MBP. Is there anyway to force it to boot back into OSX? When i get back to uni and insert my OSX install disk will it fix these problems?

    Thanks in advance, ive been pretty stupid today. :(

    You should be able to hold the option key when boot and get back to OSX

    If not, you've got bigger problems
