Ok I've lurked on this site for a while but not really posted much at all, however I now need some help. I bought windows 7 professional for £30 using my student email. However it seems you need to have windows already installed as it is an upgrade (although it does say you can do a fresh install...). I'd already partitioned my drive so I deleted that partition realising I couldn't install it straight on. So as I'm back from uni I started up bootcamp and created a 32gb partition and inserted my xp disc (you can create an iso from the upgrade disc with windows apparently, couldn't get it to on mac). Everything went fine except when I got to the part where you select what partition to put xp on. There was only one there and it was alot bigger than 32gb. So I cancelled the installation and my macbook restarted.... osx didn't boot. In a bit of a panic (I don't have my sl restore disc with me) I booted up the xp cd again and tried completing the installation. It said it finished but now when the macbook boots it just shows a flashing folder with a ? in it. Obviously when I get my restore disc back I will put that in, but will I have to completely re-install snow leopard and lose my data? Theres nothing important on it but I'm worrying about whether it'll be an easy fix or not, and obviously I'd rather not lose my stuff. What do you think?
