So I bought a brand new MBP this week and today tried to install Windows XP Pro using the instructions found on the Mac website. I ran Boot Camp Assistant, had it create a 32GB partition, and then rebooted. I entered the Windows install but it only listed a 130GB partition as being available to format to NTFS (which may or may not have been the size of my remaining OS X partition) So I ended up canceling the installation and it rebooted the system. All I get now is a blinking cursor. Holding the option key only lists a Windows OS, of course which was never installed. After describing this to the Apple Tech person, he simply said all my data is gone...I stupidly had been saving my photo files onto the HD, not thinking I would have a catastrophic incident within a week of paying $3000 for a new laptop. Just a word of warning.
